Power of Command (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Power Of Command [Psychic]
Benefit: This continuously-operating power gives +3 on Charisma checks to determine initial attitudes of creatures encountered, +3 on Diplomacy checks to influence attitudes subsequently, and +3 on your Leadership rating (see the Leadership feat). Also, whereas a cohort must normally be at least 2 levels lower than you, Power of Command changes this limit to one level lower. Furthermore, if your cohort falls below the permitted level for a new cohort (typically as a result of level loss due to being raised from the dead, or due to being recruited before this power is gained), the cohort will be inspired to gain experience at twice the usual rate until he/she catches up.
