  • Iulian Mituţ

    () (Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest)


Crisis situations are inherent in the activity of any modern organization,regardless its type – public, military or private – and they affect the efficiency of human resource or even organization’s excellence. For nearly two years, the organizational environment has been marked by the effects of the latest economical and financial crisis, which amplified the organizational tensions, highlighting, in the absence of leadership, dysfunctions or organizational issues. In crisis situations, leadership can make the difference between organizational success and failure, having a strong motivating and organizational effect. The European statistics indicate that in recent economic crisis, the countries with a culture of leadership, an organizational environment orientated to own human resources and managerial competence exceeded more easily social, economic and financial problems. So,leadership becomes a savior for organizations and even for state, if it is manifesting in many public, military and private organizations.
