What is the business value of social leadership?

When businesses harness the power of social leadership, the benefits show up in employee engagement, in the sales pipeline, and on the balance sheet.

Take IBM who, I’ve worked with for three years. They credit their improved social leadership to contributing $140 million to their sales pipeline and year on year have seen 66% growth in customer wins linked directly to social leadership from their star employees.

Banks like PNP Paribas Security Services, who look after a very specific group of institutional investors, credit their own social leadership culture change to improving employee engagement and sales impact.
