But really, truly, I'd never seen her in action in a real-life crisis. She showed every bit of that hard control she did around me, but here, I could see how necessary it was. A situation like this created panic. Even among the guardians, I could sense those who were so keyed up that they wanted to do something drastic.

This, I realized, was how a leader behaved.

— Harriet Beecher Stowe

What turns a work crisis into a life crisis is the infusion of dread.
