Measuring leadership talent and training leadership ability

Abstract
This paper is a part of a doctoral study named “Leadership in a crisis”. This paper proposes a way to a) measure the human talent leadership and b) training the ability for leadership, regarding individuals as well as leadership teams. The same simulation should be used for measuring and training. The simulation system uses intelligent agents based on HLA, IEEE 1516, for easy scaling, interoperability and reuse. The tool for measuring leadership is functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fMRI, which registers brain activity over time. Correctly stimulated the brain activity reflects the leadership talent. The system for stimulating leadership talent and the system for training of leadership ability should be the same tool, adapted to the... (More)
This paper is a part of a doctoral study named “Leadership in a crisis”. This paper proposes a way to a) measure the human talent leadership and b) training the ability for leadership, regarding individuals as well as leadership teams. The same simulation should be used for measuring and training. The simulation system uses intelligent agents based on HLA, IEEE 1516, for easy scaling, interoperability and reuse. The tool for measuring leadership is functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fMRI, which registers brain activity over time. Correctly stimulated the brain activity reflects the leadership talent. The system for stimulating leadership talent and the system for training of leadership ability should be the same tool, adapted to the demands for use with the fMRI tool. The system simulates small groups of people with group leaders. Each simulated individual, not just the subjects´ agent, is represented as an intelligent interface agent with fuzzy logic added. The agents are allowed to do mistakes but are intelligent enough to correct them over time. The fuzzy logic represent firstly, an incomplete and partly faulty picture of the leadership situation, which is common in real life, and secondly, the irrational actions that people sometimes have when stressed or confused and act emotionally. Several groups of simulations should easily be interconnected and the area of awareness per leader adapted to the purpose of the simulation. This tool can be a part of the Virtual Arena for crisis leadership training. (Less)
