One of the frustrating errors I have made over the years is to expect these gifted individuals to be leaders just because they are gifted. I expect them to lead others to do the same things they are gifted in. While sometimes the giftedness and leadership skills come in the same package, that is not always the case. More likely, they do not. Leadership seems to be a special gift in and of itself. A leader will have gifts; but gifts don't make a leader.
I have a lot yet to learn about leadership.
