Abstract This paper is going to consist of how to have leadership skills for today’s workforce. It will dig deep into previous years of leadership skills, how and where leadership skills came from and what to do in order to achieve the skills of leadership. The big question is; what is the best leadership skill for one to become a leader? This paper will also look into some of the strategies of leadership and how to actually maintain the skills and be able to use the leadership skills in and out of the workplace. This paper will cover some of our great leaders that have held some of the best leadership skills and traits and how they became successful due to their leadership skills. There are millionaires and billionaires that learned how to perfect these skills and have been very successful over the years. These leaders had their minds made up with what they wanted to accomplish and they did just that. They had a process and that process worked in their favor and has worked in the favor of others. The main problem with leadership and the skills needed to acquire these skills is the “big-head” one might get once they become a leader. Sometimes, when one accomplishes a goal, they don’t know how to maintain that goal or share their testimony with others in order for someone else to be successful. This is when that big-headed person can lose focus and eventually lose what he/she worked so hard to get. This research is important due to the fact that most people have a lot of experience and would love to be a leader. Most people have the education, personality, on-the-job experience and even the money, but they don’t have the skills for what it takes to become that leader they have always wanted to be. This research paper will shed some light on how the people who want the skills that are needed will be able to get them and maintain them throughout their
