Episode 16: The Crisis Leader

Many leaders fall into the trap of thinking that crisis is what makes a leader. But as John Maxwell says, crisis does not make a leader; crisis reveals a leader.

Good leaders are prepared when crisis hits, and their preparation is what sustains them and reveals their character under pressure. In this episode, Mark Cole and Richard Chancy share their experience with crisis in their own leadership journeys.

Listen now to learn John Maxwell’s leadership practices in times of crisis.

  1. This is good material because its a lesson of simple and practical steps where every leader can just apply it.
    I think this is an important message that we should share with friends even those who do not have employees as subordinates . Maybe within our families and even at church and within the daily happenings of life!

  2. Thank you very much for all these podcasts on leadership. They are very valuable especially as I do not live in the US. The podcasts are revealing simple and practical steps you can take when leading in any environment be it in the church, at home and in an organisation. I have shared the podcast on LinkedIn. Thank you very much Dr John Maxwell, Mark Cole, Richard and all your team for putting all these podcasts on leadership together. Many overflowing abundant blessings of the Lord God to you all.

  3. Watch your thoughts; they become words.
    Watch your words; they become actions.
    Watch your actions; they become habits.
    Watch your habits; they become character.
    Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
    Lao Tzu

  4. Listening from Zimbabwe. I was thinking WOW, this material is very relevant in my context. Will definitely be applying the leadership tips. Simultaneously I was encouraged to grow my crisis leadership muscle now, rather than wait for the crisis to be fully blown. Thank you John, Mark, Richard and team for the timely podcasts.
