After RISE’s business success, RISE’s founders began using the system in the sports field, especially team sports, because its founders were competitive athletes and understood the system’s potential to modernise team sports. RISE Sport is particularly effective for athlete selection, team selection, development of motivation systems, and in the preparation of coaches and players. RISE has partnerships with Olympic federations, professional clubs that compete in top international leagues, and national teams across sports such as football/soccer, basketball, track and field, and handball, to name a few. RISE’s strengths include recruitment for creating successful teams, developing motivational systems, creating and managing the training system of young players, steering players in the right direction, and managing the path and process of transforming young talents into top athletes.
RISE Sport focuses on identifying the athlete’s personality. The key difference between RISE and other systems currently used in business and sports is that RISE can also identify the ‘original personality’ of the athlete, which determines decision-making in a crisis. Knowing this factor is crucial for developing athletes, as they always face crises during competitions throughout their careers. In addition, RISE can determine the difference between the original personality and the so-called ‘present personality’, i.e. the personality status at the time of testing, which means it outlines the extent of changes and modifications to the personality. That way, it can point out what ‘surprises’ coaches can expect from athletes they otherwise know well, which may arise during an important match.
RISE Sport can identify the ‘short-term mask’—expected behaviour within 3-6 months of the test—and the ‘long-term mask’—expected and planned behaviour within 8-10 years of the test—defining a ‘lifetime personality ‘ for the athlete and allowing the client to create the perfect motivational environment for the athlete. In addition, RISE Sport can define the so-called ‘competition mask’, which shows what behaviour an athlete is the most likely to exhibit during high-stakes competition.
Thanks to its unique generational research, RISE Sport can define the differences between generations with respect to motivation. Using 12-year generational terms and 4-year sub-terms, it can identify significant differences in the thinking and motivation of different age groups, which is a tool that experts can successfully use in practice. RISE Sport contains 86 questions and take approximately 45 minutes to complete.
