Welcome to Birmingham ASTD!

Adding Value for Workforce Development


  Swinging the Pendulum Towards The Positive.  An Introduction to Positive Organizational Behavior.

Speaker: Justin Carter


From academics to practitioners, there is a tremendous bias towards the negative.  We will examine this bias and start the process of tilting the ratio towards the positive.  Drawing from the foundation of positive psychology and the recently emerging positive organizational behavior body of literature, you will learn many of the positively oriented human resource strengths and psychological capacities that can be measured, developed, and effectively managed for performance improvement. 

With nine years of progressive experience in human capital management, Justin currently serves as an Organization Development Business Partner for Vulcan Materials Company. As a seasoned human capital expert Justin provides a consultative approach as a resource to the construction materials business units and to the corporate office in the areas of organization development, talent management, leadership training, and human resource support.
