    In the spirit of ISPI’s year of storytelling, CDR Scott Casad will share his journey from aspiring oceanographer to ISPI President. Along the way, he has learned many lessons that have helped him create meaning and value for himself, the U.S. Coast Guard, and ISPI. If you are or ever have wondered how performance improvement and HPT could enrich both your professional and personal life, let’s spend some time together and learn from each other.


    Scott Casad, CPT, PhD serves as a Commander in the U.S. Coast Guard where he is the Chief of Training at Coast Guard Training Center Yorktown. Originally a resident of Oregon, he graduated from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in marine environmental science.

    After six years of operational assignments, he landed an instructor position and found his passion for performance technology, which led to Master's degrees from Old Dominion University and Boise State University. Over the past 12 years, his experiences range from schoolhouse instructional designer to performance consultant for major acquisitions to headquarters training manager of operational and mission support programs. Scott holds a Doctorate from Old Dominion University in organizational learning and development. His dissertation explored the role and effect of elementary teacher psychology capital on turnover, work roles, stress, commitment, and satisfaction.

    Program Description:

    How do HPT practitioners help teams open up to new talents that they may need to meet changing organizational objectives? A growth mindset can help individual employees and teams make greater contributions as the organization itself becomes a better place to learn and perform. Join us for an interactive and fast-paced webinar where we will share the early results of our evolving work on team mindsets. We’ll introduce what a growth mindset is and how it affects individuals and teams. We’ll let you reflect on your own mindset. Then we will explore a team growth mindset and our current work to measure it. We will provide several strategies to enhance a team growth mindset in your organization. We are also interested in hearing your feedback about our work, how to improve it, and how it may apply in your own organizations.
