Leadership is a skill possessed by few people. Those who do possess it often go on to do great things in life. Three leadership skills are the ability to speak clearly and powerfully in order to captivate whoever you are leading. Another skill leaders possess is knowing what they are talking about, and can back it up with evidence in order to convince a group of people to do something. A final trait possessed by leaders is the ability to take charge of a situation. Leaders can take charge if needed in order to unite a group of people.
