The paper deals with the search for new mechanisms of formation and development of the human leadership skills in today’s Russia. Proceeding from the theoretical analysis of key leadership skills as interpreted by different schools, the approaches to the formation thereof are described (leadership is only a manifestation of an inherited talent; a leader can be brought up by the relevant training or creation of certain situations). The social and cultural particularities of the phenomenon of leadership in Russia are discussed. The work presents commercial and authors’ tools based on the modern information and communication technologies that allow forming and developing the human leadership skills. Advantages and disadvantages of using the Russian commercial software, iSpring Suite, are discussed, as well as those of the authors’ information system for creating a virtual social educational environment with preset features and the authors’ specialized social network in the Internet. The virtual social environments created are easily scalable and invariant as for their content, which opens up new opportunities in terms of fast adaptation of the content suggested to social and cultural particularities of a certain person as well as creation of individual upbringing paths. As the research methods, the analysis of secondary research data and own research results using the authors’ developments is used.
