We’re delighted to introduce you to The Openside Group – or simply ‘Openside’.
You will have known us before as Psychological Skills for Professional Services (PSfPS).
We had known for a while that PSfPS wasn’t the right name for our business. Clients told us it didn’t properly represent what we do and didn’t say anything about our values or the way we work. On a more practical level it was hard to remember, say and type.
That’s why we have become The Openside Group.
The word openside originates in sport, but for us it’s much more than a sporting metaphor.
We think its overtones of breadth, openness and unity reflect the way we think and our warm, people-first approach.
We also hope you’ll agree that Openside is easier to say, spell and remember.
The new brand reaffirms our relentless focus on professional services and on developing the critical skills and behaviours required for success in the sector.
We’d also like to welcome you to our new website.
You’ll see it’s clearer about what we do, affirms our focus on professional services, illustrates how we align professional development and strategy, as well as making it easier to access and share our Points of View articles and our in-depth Special Reports.
These changes are about improving and tightening our focus, not about changing the way we work with you.
Even though our name has changed, rest assured that we’re going to remain the same open, friendly and good-humoured business we’ve always been.
Our select team of tutors will continue to deliver programmes designed to fit your context. We remain steadfast in our belief that intensive, face to face, interactive programmes are the best way to develop the critical behavioural skills required in professional services.
Above all, our success will continue to be determined by your success, as it has been for over 25 years.
If you have any questions or comments about the new name and brand, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you for your continued support as we enter the next chapter of our story.
We hope you like our new look.
