Identifying Emergent Leadership in Small Groups using Nonverbal Communicative Cues

This paper addresses firstly an analysis on how an emergent leader is perceived in newly formed small-groups, and secondly, explore correlations between perception of leadership and automatically extracted nonverbal communicative cues. We hypothesize that the difference in individual nonverbal features between emergent leaders and non-emergent leaders is significant and measurable using speech activity. Our results on a new interaction corpus show that such an approach is promising, identifying the emergent leader with an accuracy of up to 80%
