Introduction. Every crisis teaches its own lesson. From the multitude of economic and social phenomena, the crisis has a baleful force, both through the energies it engages and through the energies it consumes through manifestation. The crisis is the hardest lesson that forces us to be careful so that we can avoid it, overcome it. Crises can be “managed” to become bearable. The attitude of the management, expressed concretely by the activity of the leaders on different hierarchical levels, comes to maintain and influence the performances of the organization, to support the dynamics of the change processes and to help, in this way, to design and achieve the strategic vision.
Aim of the study. This paper intends to present some strategic visions and ways of exercising the missions of leaders in organizations determined by the requirements for change.

Introduction. Under the incidence of COVID-19 pandemic, everything is chanced from behavior to action patterns. Research indicates that lack of flexibility and finding short term solutions to changes can be a myopia of leadership. People, organizations and governments are leading their actions in a context characterized by the unknown, the lack of predictability and hazy horizons, in which the only weapon is the ability to adapt. Adaptive leadership should be a solution for individuals and organizations to adjust to changing environments and effectively respond to recurring problems. The adaptive leadership involves changing behavior in appropriate ways as the situation changes and it requires knowledge and the tools to solve the problem efficiently.
Aim of the study. The article is an exploratory study based on author`s observations and literature investigation on the subject investigated during COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, the paper aims to investigate how companies acted in the first phase of the pandemic (as first actions), but also how organizational leadership can be transformed into current conditions to achieve efficiency. The article provide a perspective of the adaptive leadership theory as a basis for business to change their traditional leadership into a process that is not constrained by hierarchical and one-directional notions of leadership (Scott Du Rue, 2011) because in current context, leadership should develop and adapt in dynamic contexts. Limitations: the paper is a theoretical approach that is trying to guide the organizations in the process of acting in a business, economic and social environment profoundly changed by the pandemic effects. Another limitation is the period investigated; the author includes only the actions in the early stage of pandemic (the first three months).

Introduction. In the speciality literature, a number of studies have been written and are still written today, which show the necessity of redefining the notion of manager regarding the elements that define the leader within the organization. Over time, a series of analyzes have been put in place to determine whether a person has a leadership role following a development process or whether leadership skills are skills with which a person is born with. The concept of an efficient manager should not be confused with the concept of leader because in the case of the first concept, the attribute used to achieve the results remains the authority with which the manager is established, an attribute that the leader does not have.
