Within the RISE Entrepreneurial Life Design experience, facilitators guide students through the process of intentionally and strategically shaping their life to align with their entrepreneurial aspirations, values, and goals.

  • *For Ivy Tech Educators: Participation in the PDP Personality Survey, as well as a personal survey readback. The PDP Survey is a global survey that examines how a participant works most effectively and reacts under stress. This survey allows educators to identify and dive deep into their own behavioral traits, as well as how they communicate with others and prefer to be communicated with. Educators are able to take these skills into the classroom for increased understanding of student needs, decision-making styles, energy capacity, and motivators–understanding that is crucial to the creation of a mastery-based and innovative learning environment. Please note: Post-RISE Training, all Ivy Tech educators have continued access to a PDP classroom facilitation and readback by the RISE team.
