JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas – A deep dive into the growth mindset and how Air Education and Training Command is using it to help develop the Airmen we need for tomorrow’s high-end fight is the focus of the latest episode of "The Air Force Starts Here" podcast, released July 20, 2022.

Dan Hawkins from the Air Education and Training Command public affairs team spoke virtually with Dr. Lauren Scharff, professor of behavioral sciences at the U.S. Air Force Academy, along with John Reifenberg, an AETC force development policy specialist, about the science behind both growth and fixed mindsets, how USAFA and AETC are incorporating the mindsets into education and training, and how it applies to organizations as a whole.

The professional development podcasts are designed to help communicate and inform Total Force Airmen across the globe on relevant, timely topics related to the recruiting, training, education and development fields and can be listened to on the government network on the AETC website, DVIDS, or on Apple Podcasts and Spotify as well.  Future episodes are set to cover a wide range of topics, including force development, and much more.
