Leadership is a perk available to all heroes at the beginning of the game. Leadership is mostly an offensive perk, as it only increases damage of your Minions. Minions will include Battlecruisers, Nexus Exiles, Combat Drones, Dusk Wings, Flaming Betties, Hellfires, and Gatlings. It synergizes well with Helldivers and Air Support perks.

This perk is mandatory for Swann, Aquila, Fury, Atlas. It increases the damage of Swann's turrets, Aquila's blades/exiles, Fury's Iron Legion and mines, and Atlas' drop pods. These are all basic abilities, and as such don't require a particular mastery investment to gain most of the benefit.

The reason why Aquila picks the Leadership perk is because she benefits much less from other perks. Other Protoss heroes will also benefit from Leadership, but may have better options, depending on play style.

Nova, Pyro, Tassadar, and Messiah significantly benefit from Leadership as well, but only if you choose their corresponding masteries: Combat Drone Mastery, Skyshield Mastery, Reaver Mastery, and Enslave Mastery respectively.

Tassadar in particular you may find Leadership to be less useful, since Reavers do ridiculous amounts of damage anyway, and take a long time to reach their destination.
