Leadership is a support skill which can be used during combat to improve the amount of hexes units can move, give a character an extra attack action or to let enemies flee an area. This skill also has a passive effect which increases physical and mental resistance by 5 percent-points at every rank. In order to have access to leadership, a character must have at least 4 Sense.

Outside of combat, it gives the player character access to additional dialogue options, just like the skill diplomacy, but leadership gives far less extra options compared to the other skill.
