    Abstract

    Important aspects of leadership behavior can be rendered intelligible through a
    focus on coordination games. The concept of common knowledge is shown to be
    particularly important to understanding leadership. Thus, leaders may establish
    common knowledge conditions and assist the coordination of strategies in this
    way, or make decisions in situations where coordination problems persist in spite
    of common knowledge.
