A percolation-based model to describe organizational structures is proposed, and its main characteristics are delineated. The model is applied in the study of a frequent organizational drawback faced by managers, directors, etc.: the 'leadership hindrance'. It is demonstrated that this and other organizational problems are circumvented by the reshaping of the enterprise 'susceptibility profile', conducted by actions of the leader and his/her staff. The interplay between short- and long-range interactions within the organizational structure as the determinants of extensivity and non-extensivity is discussed. The potentialities of the percolation model for a broader range of organizational applications are addressed.
