What kind of leadership do you need for a downturn?  Strong, balanced and complete.  When times get tough, leaders often make the mistake of focusing only on one thing: the immediate bottom line.  Great leaders, however, continue to operate in the long term as well as the short term, and maintain focus on people as well as on results.  Leaders who understand this will help their organization succeed in the short term and position it for the recovery.
