Are Corporate Leaders Stuck in a Bubble?

Many corporate teams operate as though stuck in a leadership bubble, according to a survey of more than 300 executives and managers conducted by AMA Enterprise, a division of American Management Association.

One-third of respondents believe their leadership is stuck in a bubble most of the time, while another half say it happens on occasion. Only 18 percent indicate their leadership team has not, to some degree, lost touch with the organization.

Three-quarters of respondents report that they have worked at an organization where the leadership team was out of touch and operated as though it was stuck in a bubble.

“Whether the prevalence of the bubble phenomenon is a reality or just perceived as such, employees clearly feel that leadership hasn’t bothered to pay attention to their concerns or what’s really going on in the workplace,” says Jennifer Jones, Director at AMA Enterprise, which provides organizations with assessment, measurement and tailored training solutions.
