management team
Explanation:
This is the term I think you are looking for.
It is usual practice in larger companies to create teams of managers, that become responsible for certain projects. Basically such teams overlap the normal management structure.
Kreis = circle, group => i.e. a team.

management


Explanation:
It looks like it is "management", though context would help. Literally, it means "the circle of managers".

management committee


Explanation:
management committee

An AltaVista search suggests that Leitungskreis is not a Siemens-specific term at all; and that the term typically applies to a group of capable individuals from various departments or organizations who gather periodically to provide guidance to a project or activity that is not their primary, full-time responsibility.

Leadership Circle


Explanation:
Without sufficient context, the typical tendency (and I think it is a healthy one) is to stick very closely to the source words. The outcome may be a bit literalistic, but only you, with the entire context in front of you, can exercise proper interpretive liberties.

Other possible expressions are:

the leadership

leadership team

the management

management circle

management team

etc.
