The authors discuss the proper attitude leaders should assume in difficult times. They state that such attitude should view challenges as opportunities, not as obstacles to be dealt with. They cite that proper attitude should be seen as a time to make major improvements by developing capabilities in their organizations, creating confidence in themselves and in the teams they lead. In the event of setbacks, the authors suggest that leaders should be able to bounce back, learning from mistakes and getting back to work with a renewed sense of purpose.
