Abstract
This study provides a theoretical framework illustrating the predicaments leadership en-counters and the deficits leadership exposes in crisis from the perspective of responsibility, public opinion and decision-making. This pa-per argues that crises brings challenges as well as opportunity for change, therefore with enhanced competence, explicit mission and establishment of strategic plans, the leadership can be remarkably improved in crisis. In conclusion, this paper points out that the key to turn crises into opportunity lies in how to identify and improve the pivotal competence, build a mission shared by all and implement strategies that fit specific environment.
