ABSTRACT
The article offers tips on developing crisis leadership ability. The best way to develop crisis leadership ability is to learn from leaders in life-or-death situations, the author says. Great leaders perceive motivation from danger as a way to help people work smarter. He adds that leaders should demonstrate that risk and reward are distributed fairly though much of the risk are their own. They should also develop competence so that trust and loyalty from their followers will likewise develop.
