    • Leadership in crisis has several components. The mental stamina of leaders is based on adequate organizational preparation, rapid assumption of control when the crisis erupts, and convincing leadership behavior toward all stakeholders. Some parts are models that have been tested in many crises and whose implementation must be enforced. But there remains the part of one's own mental preparation for the demands on the precision of decisions and the prudence of communication.

What role does the HR function, and especially the HR management, play? In the past, the answer would have focused on the effective management of human resources.
