In General, the situation with the emergence of informal leaders in the team need all the time to monitor and keep under control. The formal leader is appointed by the owners or operators Director of the company, branch or Department. The informal leader is released in the person group of people whose opinion is very weighty in the team. In some cases, these two leader are the same in one person, but more often they are not just different people, they are opposites.
Establishing contact with the informal leader. The biggest mistake of leaders is that they are trying to take an informal leader, and if you can't "force" him to do as you want leadership, he is fired. This is the wrong move, because if it so happened that the formal leader cannot be a man among subordinates, the question of the emergence of a new informal "leader" is a matter of time. A series of dismissals won't suffice. Much more profitable and cheaper to search for a contact with the already released leader.

Even if they are inciting to protest against the increase and increase of the load, they have a willingness to exchange these "good" at something else. And this leader should be able to use to offer the conditions under which the company will not suffer losses from innovations proposed by the leader of the protest.
