Important to be calm as a leader (and follower) in tough situations

Today I played a very high pressure cricket match. I play cricket quite regularly with my friends but today's match was a challenge with another team. We won from that team a week ago but this time around they came with an even better team. It was a very big match for our team. During the match I felt some pressure due to the situation. I tried my best not to show the tension and remain captain was very calm and responsible throughout the match.......overall things went pretty well for our team. 

Reflecting back on that match I think that it is very important to remain calm in tough situations for a leader as well as a follower. If the leader shows some signs of tension that the followers will most probably fell the tension too. Similarly the follower's tensions are going to impact the leader too. I think that tough and difficult situations are inevitable in real life as well as in organizational settings. We may have to make decisions at some points in our life or in the organizations we work, which are very important and crucial. It is important both as a leader and as a follower to handle the situation by remaining calm ........ and even enjoy the challenge. These situations are a test of character and by handling them effectively our personality can become stronger and better.
