Our Commitments

If you choose to work with Openside, these are the commitments we will make to you.

  • We will invest significant time understanding your current context, firm-wide strengths and weaknesses, culture and strategic objectives.
  • We will ensure any professional development is directly aligned with your firm’s strategic objective.
  • We will develop the behaviours that exemplify your values, embody your culture and properly represent your brand.
  • We will never force fit your firm into our programmes. Our content is designed and delivered to fit your context.
  • We will always believe that intensive and interactive classroom-based programmes are the best way to develop the behavioural skills required in professional services, however, electronic tools are crucial to ensure the learning sticks.
  • We will make the learning as relevant and immediately applicable as possible, incorporating your live projects, cases and opportunities wherever possible.
  • We will never provide an off-the-shelf programme delivered by script readers. All our programmes are unique because the client’s context is different every time.
  • We will ensure that you have measurable and demonstrable value long after each programme has ended.

Our Principles

The Openside O

Openside have four key principles that guide our behaviours and the way we work with our clients at all times:

  • Assured
  • Respected
  • Authorative
  • Human

For our clients, this means:

  • We will be confident – but never arrogant – about what we say and believe in.
  • We will always treat others how we’d like to be treated ourselves.
  • We will treat you with utmost respect and we expect this respect to be reciprocated. We are not ‘just another training firm’ or a ‘supplier’.
  • We will not be afraid to challenge the way you think. We won’t accept your status quo without judgement.
  • We will offer our point of view even if it’s uncomfortable for you to hear.
  • We will push you to be the best you can be.
  • We will always try to act with empathy, emotion, humility and respect.
  • We will not take ourselves too seriously. We will often laugh with you and frequently at ourselves.
