Whatever skills the specific job is looking for. There's no point wasting space on showing leadership skills if you aren't going to be asked to lead anything.

Employers don't read or believe generic 'key skills' lists. What they want to see is evidence of the applicant demonstrating the use of relevant skills in different circumstances of their lives. Most often that's in similar jobs, but if you are just starting out in employment, then you can use skills transferred from non-work contexts.

But the key thing is to only give evidence of skills the employer actually needs to do the job.

Teamwork
This is a list of examples
Scenario one- Imagine you were on a boat that suddenly catches fire- consider the value of teamwork in that case.
Scenario two- you are asked to work as a team to complete a hard escape room
Scenario three- You are assigned a team exercise at school in a lesson- explain what you would do firstly
Scenario four- you have to team up to work to save some wild animals in danger
Scenario five- To improve your teamwork skills, the manager wants you to split into teams to fix a broken car for someone.
Describe the importance of teamwork in any case. Discuss why it matters. Evaluate your own performance. Give a definition to start off your application form.
