To help them gain a deeper understanding of themselves, both from their own and others' perspectives, RiceLeaders participants engage in three different assessments at two key points of the program.
In preparation for the Leadership module and start of the RiceLeaders program, participants complete and nominated raters, to complete on their behalf, the following assessments:
Participants receive and review the results of these assessments during their Leadership module, then work with executive coaches following the module to further interpret, and make good use of, the assessment feedback.
In preparation for the Creativity module, participants complete the Innovation Strengths Preference Indicator (ISPI).
Participants receive and review the results of their ISPI during their Creativity module, and then participate in activities that demonstrate how the results relate to the individual and collective talents and abilities of the group, and offer insight into how participants can use the assessment feedback in their work.
