My leadership skills are quite modest, to be able to provide an extensive analysis of this quote. However it is well known that leaders have to remain calm in crisis. It is also known that leaders need to take sometimes decisions that are unpopular, and that there will be always someone dissatisfied.

You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.
