520    This study utilizes the skills approach as a basis to 
       explain how these four leadership skills (cognitive, 
       interpersonal, business, and strategic skills) as well as 
       beauty (variables that include gender, height, weight, age,
       personality, smile, and overall attractiveness) affects 
       followers' perceptions toward leadership effectiveness. 
       The skills approach estimates leadership effectiveness and
       personal attributes helps explain the influence on 
       followers' attitudes toward their leaders. Understanding 
       leadership helps college students realize that they are 
       capable of being effective leaders and guides them in 
       developing their leadership potential. Multiple 
       regressions, hierarchical regression, and ANOVA were used 
       to discuss the relationship between four leadership skills,
       beauty, and leadership effectiveness. The results suggest 
       that business skills are the key to leaders getting higher
       evaluations in leadership effectiveness. Furthermore, when
       business skills are low, height moderates the relationship
       between business skills and leadership effectiveness
