What is PushMe's Inside Out self-assessment / report?PushMe's Inside Out self assessment programme is designed to increase your awareness of how you operate in the workplace. It’s an opportunity to reflect on and consider your strengths and the elements of your role that you find most challenging. The real value comes from reviewing the results with your manager or a trusted colleague as doing so drives better conversations around career development and helps you decide which areas you need to focus on. Self-awareness is critical for continuous improvement. The report you receive will reflect your own perception of how you show up within the work environment. It will be performed on a quarterly basis to enable you to measure and monitor your progress in each of the categories over time. The assessment takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and the results may or may not influence the development areas you choose to focus on during the programme. There is the option within the assessment to invite colleagues of yours to contribute to your Inside Out report. In doing so, you receive additional data points and gain insights into how others perceive you in the workplace. To avail of this option you are required to provide a minimum of 5 colleagues to ensure anonymity. The assessment will then be shared with your colleagues for completion with their scores remaining anonymous and displayed as averages in your report. This peer feature is optional and not obligatory.
Who has access to my Inside Out report?It is at your discretion who you share and discuss your Inside Out report with. While completing the form, you will have the option to share the report with your chosen Coach to supplement your coaching sessions.
Where can I access my Inside Out self-assessment form and report?For businesses The form will be included in your welcome email for completion. Your report will be sent to you by email and it can also be accessed via the 'Reports' tag in the app. For individuals You can access your benchmark assessment for completion in the 'My self-assessments' section of your portal. Your Q1 assessment will appear for completion in your portal 3 months into the duration of your programme i.e. (3 months post benchmark assessment) and so on for your next quarterly assessment(s). You will receive notification when each report is ready for review in your portal and it can also be accessed via the 'Reports' tag in your 'My content' browser / mobile app.
What is professional business coaching?Business coaching is a creative process in which a professional Coach guides you toward maximising your professional potential. The process provides you with a confidential sounding board to work through the goals and challenges that you own within your role. The coaching sessions give you access to cognitive diversity – differences in perspectives, insights and thinking styles. This enables you to develop the mindsets and behaviours required to bring about positive change. It's a confidential space and an opportunity to take time out from your busy day-to-day. The sessions are designed to help you identify, prioritise and action the specific areas that will have the biggest impact on your role. The 60-minute one-to-one sessions take place virtually using video software of your choice.
What are the benefits of business coaching?It is dedicated time away from your busy day-to-day schedule to help you... work on specific development areas that can enable you progress within your company identify and prioritise what matters most in your role to achieve your professional goals commit to action for certain tasks that you have been putting off work through challenges you are having with colleagues boost your creativity levels plan how you can deliver more value to both your clients and colleagues understand how you can achieve a better work-life balance clarify your thinking on what you would like to achieve within your company
Why would I use business coaching?With a growth mindset, there is never a shortage of skills to work on! The number of areas you develop over a set period of time will depend on the rate of progress and the complexity of topic chosen. Below is a list of areas our community of users work toward developing. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list and that you can look to develop an area not listed below.

How will I choose what to work on with my Coach?We recommend collaborating with your manager or a trusted advisor to agree on 3 professional development areas that you will focus on during your programme. To help facilitate this conversation, it's worth addressing two key questions: What's the hardest part about your role? What's the one area that, if you could improve, would make you even more effective within your role? PushMe can provide additional data to help with your selection process. This can be in the form of a self-assessment or 360-degree feedback programme.
What's the difference between business coaching and mentoring?Mentors answer your questions, coaches question your answers! Coaching focuses on developing skills, mindsets and behaviours that are critical for your role. It's about removing yourself from the day-to-day to focus on the areas that you need to prioritise. That could be anything from hitting a performance target to managing your team more effectively. Coaching is designed to provide you with different perspectives, insights and thinking styles to help you progress through a challenge or achieve a professional goal. Mentoring typically involves showing you what to do and how to do it. Mentors use their personal context and experience to help you with your career development. They typically have a good understanding of either the company or the sector, and can help open up doors to get you to where you want to go. Sessions can often employ practices from both coaching and mentoring. At the end of the day, you know your job, colleagues and business far better than we ever will so we'll always encourage you to take ownership and responsibility for your own role.
How do coaching credits work?Coaching credits work as follows: Mon - Fri (09:00 - 17:30): 1 hour = 1 credit Mon - Fri (00:00 - 09:00, 17:30 - 23:59): 1 hour = 1.5 credits Sat/Sun/Bank Holidays (00:00 - 23:59): 1 hour = 2 credits Please note that a 1 hour session falling between time bands (e.g. Mon - Fri, 08:30 - 09:30 or 17:00 - 18:00) will utilise 1.5 credits.

Can I fall behind with the content modules?In short, no. We understand that people have different learning patterns and preferences. Some will like to consume the content in smaller doses as it arrives into their feed while others will prefer to let it build up and tackle a chunk of it in one sitting. We also provide content breaks in between your chosen modules to allow additional time so you can read it whenever suits you best. Ultimately the message is to make the content work for you. Ask yourself how you can take the practical tips and apply them to your day-to-day role in order to start working smarter.
Why is there a 4 week content break in between modules?The content breaks between modules are provided as we understand the benefits to be gained from periods of self-reflection. In a study carried out by researchers Giada Di Stefano (HEC Paris), Francesca Gino, Gary Pisano (Harvard University), and Bradley Staats (University of North Carolina) to show the impact of reflection on performance, the results showed that employees who spent as little as 15 minutes at the end of the day reflecting about lessons learned performed 22.8% better after 10 days than those who did not take the time to reflect. The 4 week content break between modules gives you an opportunity to: reflect on lessons learned to date with the aim to implement key lessons digest and reflect on additional learning material shared with you complete any actions that you have set yourself catch up on any content cards not yet read If you have coaching credits remaining, you can continue to have sessions with your Coach during this period but you won't receive any new content cards. This period is also used to complete your quarterly self-assessment and reflect on any significant movements in the various categories.

I want to break free! • 3 min read
Researchers in Fordham and Rochester Universities carried out a study on the impact of self-determination theory (SDT) within small businesses.
Half of the businesses operated a top-down directive model while the other half provided their staff with autonomy around what tasks they undertook and how they performed them.
Their findings showed that businesses who granted autonomy to their staff...
