On Friday 10th November, PSfPS will become The Openside Group
We’ve known for a while that Psychological Skills for Professional Services (PSfPS) isn’t the right name for our business.
Clients have told us it doesn’t properly represent what we do and doesn’t say anything about our values or the way we work. On a more practical level it’s hard to remember, say and type.
That’s why on Friday PSfPS will 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. It’s also 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.
Along with our new name and logo, on Friday you’ll also be able to visit our new website: www.openside.group
The new website will be clearer about what we do and how we align professional development and strategy through ‘The Openside Approach’, as well as making it easier to access and share our Points of View articles and our Special Reports.
These changes are about improving and tightening our focus, not about changing the way we work with you. Rest assured that we’re going to remain the same open, friendly and good-humoured business we’ve always been.
Our success will continue to be determined by your success. 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.
Thank you for your continued support as we enter the next chapter of our story.
If you have any questions about the new name and brand, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
