Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine how leadership styles will influence the team performance during a computer game training. In order to get a better understanding what leadership styles are going to be distinguished, researchers observed students' interactions while they played a strategic computer game. In the study, a group of Stanford University graduate students participated in the training with a `real esate' computer game. The participants' task during the game was to manage an estate company in small teams. Students developed goals, discussed problems and tracked progress in order to win the game. The results showed that the teams had different leadership styles which affected their performance. The leadership styles that participants used and how they affected the teams' performance are described in the paper.
