The Field Report by Jenni Field
“A really tangible report that all leaders can interpret quickly and put into action without overwhelming us with trying to fix everything. An exciting read that is positive and energising after a period of uncertainty for everyone!” AnnMarie Phillips, Global Manufacturing Excellence Director, Diageo.
The Field Report includes insights from our research into the role of line managers, identifies the opportunities to be grasped on the back of the COVID-19 pandemic and highlights the focus that is needed on culture for organisations to thrive. It covers mental resilience, productivity, leadership and hybrid working – all of which are on the agenda for organisations across the globe. And looks at how we need impactful communication processes and skills if organisations are to grow, transform and create efficient workplaces. It describes The Field Model framework – a powerful and easy-to-follow methodology to help organisations go from chaos to calm.
Each section includes a “Be Inspired” page where you can find recommendations for TV shows, books and podcasts to keep you entertained and thinking differently about work. There’s also a comprehensive further reading section.

Very much enjoying The Field Report. Nice snackable content (I find I never read business books to the end).
