For me it is two basic skills - listening and leading. If you listen well you can choose when and what to do in order to provide effective leadership.

Listening, negotiating (without seeming like you're negotiating), and the ability to make everyone successful.

On my last project I was the overall IT implementation lead for a massive project. But yet, regularly pulled into 2 of the 8 streams that reported into me as it was a difficult set of stakeholders where meetings turned toxic. The C-level asked that I personally take ownership because I was the only one who could keep the room calm, secure agreements, and follow up to make sure people abided by them.
