The Chief Director of SaTechRo LLC and the creator of the SEEN vs. SHADOW workplace initiative joins the International Society of Performance Improvement’s (Hampton Roads Chapter) Board of Directors
It is official; Sazara R. Johnson is now the 2018 President-Elect of the International Society of Performance Improvement (ISPI)- Hampton Roads (HR) branch. After her two-year tenure, she is set to take the helm as President in 2020.
Stephanie Shipman is the currently elected 2018-2020 President of the organization after serving as the past President-Elect from 2016-2018.
Johnson was initially approached to take on a board position after the then-President of ISPI (HR) Keith Spranger introduced himself to her during the 2017 ISPI Symposium hosted by the US Coast Guard and Old Dominion University. Spranger attended Johnson's workshop session entitled Maneuvering Games of Politics with Design Thinking for executives, decision makers, leaders, and managers.
Also, as a result of the workshop, Johnson was invited to professionally publish in an industry refereed journal for 2018. Dr. Peter Honebein (Editor-in-Chief) of the Performance Improvement journal stated, “the [National] ISPI President Scott Casad felt that [Sazara’s] presentation, Maneuvering Games of Politics with Design Thinking, would make a great article for the Performance Improvement journal.”
Sazara R. Johnson has been in the performance improvement industry for 20 years, starting as a young college student who was simultaneously teaching university technology classes to faculty, staff, and students. Most recently, she served as a crisis management and performance improvement advisor for personnel in university administration, pharma, NYC public schools, and artesian jewelry leadership,
The ISPI of Hampton Roads provides professional development, networking, mentoring, and other opportunities for members and guests in the human performance technology community. Human performance technology “uses a wide range of interventions that are drawn from many other disciplines including behavioral psychology, instructional systems design, organizational development, and human resources management" to solve problems related to the performance of people.
