The leaders influence all members of an organization in cooperation, coordination and communication, in order to achieve certain leadership and company goals.
There are different kinds of leadership styles: authoritarian, democratically or laissez faire.  All of which have different effects and work in different kinds of ways. Leaders should therefore know which leadership style suits themselves as well as their team best.
The integrity and competence of the leader as a role model, motivator and ideally a consultant and mentor, counts as well when it comes to specific problems and issues beyond generic competencies.
