The test of a great leader is when things are tough. Anybody can lead especially when there is no problem. The need for a leader comes when the business is collapsing, people are not happy or the organization is under threat due to legal battles. Carlos Ghosn was nicknamed Mr Fixer after spearheading the turnaround of Nissan from its near-bankruptcy in 1999. By the early 2000s, the company had emerged from the crisis. Overcoming challenges is what makes one become a leader. When you hear or read about Nelson Mandela’s name that has been written in world history, it is because he demonstrated leadership at a time no one was providing it. There was a leadership vacuum. The same applies to the story of Moses in the Bible.
