As working-from-home has become more routine, the demands on leadership are shifting. Now, leaders must be transparent about a Post-Corona ‘new normal’ business model. The work life data of Innovisor reveals that the influencers that exist within the hidden social structure of the company are the most trusted source of information. The chosen way for employees to make sense of “what is actually going on”.
And, as the water cooler chats are now taking place virtually, these hidden social structures are even more invisible than before.
Bethany Andell, President of Savage Brands: “Visionary leaders that have accepted our current circumstance and now seek to unlock the creativity, energy and motivation of their teams need to have a true understanding of what is really happening within their virtual organizations. The best way to get the truth, the whole picture, is by tapping into the company’s hidden influencers – typically this 3% has influence of 85–90% of the company.”
