How we can help

Revolutionise your organisation with impactful communication

If your organisation feels chaotic, we guarantee that exploring how people communicate and the rhythm of your organisation will make a huge difference.

Redefining Communications is a consultancy that transforms organisations by improving communication. Our team delivers a range of services including consultancy, communication strategy and implementation, learning and development workshops, coaching, event facilitation and keynote speaking.

Is your organisation:

  • Going through changes?
  • Growing at pace?
  • Experiencing operational bottlenecks?
  • Struggling to get teams to work well together?

Whatever is causing the chaos, we can bring the calm to help you transform your business. Our expertise lies in communication. We work with leaders to help them explore their own style, their impact on the organisation and how things get done. Importantly, we diagnose what stops things happening and ensure that you can fix issues to bring a sense of calm and focus in the long-term.

We can stimulate change by:

  • Getting your people doing what you need them to do, when you need them to do it
  • Helping your teams work better together and get along with each other
  • Stopping you wasting time and money on things that don’t add value to your business.

We work with organisations of all sizes and industries. From a charity, technology and fitness to an international defence organisation. From six to 80,000 employees. We have codified an approach, honed over many years, to help organisations communicate effectively.

The Field Model™ seeks to understand, diagnose and fix issues. Whether this is for your communications strategy, a team issue or a leadership development challenge – our model works. All we need is for you to be ready to delve into your organisation, address the things you have brushed under the carpet and be open for a (sometimes difficult) conversation! We will take care of the rest.

Extension of your team

Our combined 32 years’ experience in communication is founded in 29 years as in-house practitioners. As in-house teams we operated as a consultancy, supporting the requirements of functions with events, film, copywriting, imagery and editorial. We managed digital transformation, print channels and campaigns. We worked in small teams, outsourced expertise and managed small budgets.

When we work as an extension of your team, we operate in the same way. Our associates are there to offer the expertise needed for specific projects and work with you to provide support… whatever you’re being asked to do. While we specialise in communication inside your organisation, we have run global communication functions and our associates are experts in marketing and web design, so we’re able to work with you across the full discipline of PR and communications.

Your bespoke team will depend on your needs; and we work with you on site, using your company email address to provide the impression we’re in your team. Whatever you need to deliver, we can do it.

We offer a range of workshops, programmes and support, which can be tailored to your precise needs:

Power of productivity workshop

For many people, communication and productivity go hand-in-hand. We hear a lot of statements like this every week:

  • I don’t have time to do this
  • The one thing I need more of is time
  • They’re asking for too much and I don’t know how to prioritise
  • I’m overwhelmed with the amount of stuff I need to do
  • I just don’t know where to start
  • I simply can’t switch off
  • I feel anxious that I should be doing more than I am.

Our half-day Power of productivity workshop is designed to coach you through the techniques to help you move forward and understand why you may have become stuck in a productivity rut in the first place. We’ll talk about the science behind it all, delve into the theories about procrastination and more importantly, the plans and actions for you to use in the office immediately.

Impactful communication workshop

We believe that if everyone understands communication better, including their own styles and impact on others, work will become more efficient and more productive. This workshop is often run in line with a broader development programme, but also works as a standalone workshop for teams looking to understand each other better.

This workshop is tailored to you. We take time to discuss individual communication styles and adapt the session to the group.

We cover:

  • The six key factors in impactful communication
  • A review of previous communication styles: where things went well or didn’t go well.

Liberating leadership two-day programme

This programme was designed after an extensive 25-year research programme into effective leaders across numerous industries. It was found that in the same set of circumstances, some leaders were highly effective, yet others were notably less so. Regardless of industry and organisation size, the ‘difference that made a difference’ was the consistent and remarkably similar approach taken by the effective managers with their teams. The less successful managers had an approach that was lacking in consistency and cohesion.

Over the course of the three-day programme, our Client Partner Nicola, will work with you to develop the mindset and skills of a high-performing leader, known as ‘high challenge and high support’.

Together, you’ll cover the two key concepts and two attitudinal characteristics common to all effective leaders:

  1. Expectations theory
  2. Reinforcement theory
  3. Positive regard
  4. Genuineness

The research also showed that effective leaders follow a proven four-step process – visioning, mobilising, developing and enabling. We will cover these and their 15 competencies to leave you able to purposely lead your teams to higher performance and greater success.

Please note that the third day of the programme follows six months later when we’ll regroup to refresh our memories of the programme, discuss how you’ve implemented key learning, the benefits you’ve seen and any issues you’ve had.

Coaching: If you feel you’d like some additional support implementing your new skills, we can spend an agreed amount of time together between programme days. You might want to get together in person or connect over the phone – whatever you need, we will tailor the coaching to you.

Event facilitation

As a business communications strategist, Jenni Field’s goal is to help clients get to the heart of the issues holding them back.

Event facilitation can be for large scale events in a chair capacity or it can be for teams that need to resolve a specific issue. We have facilitated several events across the UK and Europe – here is what some of our clients told us:

“Jenni is our go-to facilitator for our AB Thinks Live events. She is a natural facilitator – confident, authoritative and highly engaging. In the planning phases, Jenni brings independence and objectivity, challenging our thinking and guiding us towards better solutions. Plus, she has an impressive reputation in the communication industry, which lends added credibility to our events.”
MD, Communications Agency

“We have enjoyed Jenni co-hosting the last four Simply conferences – she combines a breezy, accessible style with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the internal comms and engagement space. Never lost for words, she thinks ably on her feet. And as one of the industry’s key influencers we enjoy the extra halo effect of her wide contacts and relationships.”
Founder, Simply-Communicate

Coaching and mentoring

Jenni Field works with clients at varying levels, from managing directors through to internal communication managers. This isn’t a formal coaching experience; it’s more relaxed, more fluid and tailored to you. You might want to get together in person each week, each month or connect over the phone – whatever you need, we will tailor the coaching and mentoring. Working in partnership, we help you become comfortable in confronting the things that are holding you back. Together, we will get to the root of the issues and find the steps to move forward.

Jenni’s approach enables conversation, understanding and ways to move forward. Known for her no-nonsense style and ability to allow things to change at pace, Jenni is usually brought onboard because the organisation needs to pivot, or individuals need to change their behaviours to work better together.

Core topics include:

  • Difficult relationships in the management team
  • Career progression in communications
  • Confidence and influencing skills
  • Communication skills
  • Business growth and management.
