Both leadership and team research are flourishing academic areas. However, most studies have examined leader behavior and team interaction based on aggregated perceptual recall ratings. Important leadership theories, such as the transformational-transactional model, and team phenomena have been investigated mainly on the basis of static behavioral survey studies. More and more leadership and team scholars question whether these examinations yield insights into the subtleties of real-time micro-behaviors and interactions between effective leaders and their followers. The aim of this PhD dissertation is, therefore, to (1) show how a host of micro-behaviors of leaders and followers are related with enhanced effectiveness, and (2) identify effective social dynamics between leaders and followers in teams. A blend of advanced methods, tools and techniques (including quantitative video-capture and -coding as well as physiological data collection) were used that resulted in new insights into how effective leaders and their followers interact.
