There is nothing quite like a crisis to test your leadership. It will make or break you as a leader.
Crises have brought down many leaders and their organizations with them, while other leaders have risen to the challenges to prove their mettle.
What makes leading your organization through difficult situations so hard? Like being in a war, crises test you to your limits because the outcome is rarely predictable. You not only have to use all your wisdom to guide your organization through it, you must dig deep inside yourself to find the courage to keep going forward.
