This paper explores the traits of the leadership dexterity of special students. Leadership in special students is not an expected phenomenon. Cases of special students studying at the University of Tampere, Finland are reported on here. Each case contributes uniqueness and offers qualitative insight into this phenomenon. Interviews were conducted on the respondent's willingness. The interviewees were special students who suffered from different special dexterities such as cerebral palsy, dyslexia, and height phobia. The findings suggest that realizing weakness is important and transforming these in strengths that lead to behavioral changes. Initiating special abilities enhances in strengthening the weaknesses empowering them to perform better through adaptability. Their initiative persistence is high because they are pushing themselves harder. This empowers them to increase their competence through maintaining the stability and adaptability to perform. However, losing persistence is another form of weaknesses.
