This article suggests a PBL activity, which introduces business students to several leadership styles that are often found in cross-functional business teams. Originally developed as an exercise for team-building, we extend the previous work by focusing on emerging leadership styles in newly formed teams. Students are given the opportunity to look at their own leadership abilities. Results report a clearer understanding of how leaders emerge in task directed teams.
