Carl Binder

Board of Directors

Dr. Carl Binder began as a doctoral student in Experimental Psychology, attending Harvard University at the invitation of B.F. Skinner, whose writings had inspired him deeply. With an interest in making a societal contribution, he rapidly shifted from basic research to real world application of behavior science, first developing innovative instructional methods and teacher training for educators, and later contributing to the emerging field of human performance technology in large organizations. With input from many extraordinary teachers and colleagues, Carl has spent nearly 40 years bringing his enthusiasm for behavior science into corporations, schools, and public organizations worldwide. Founder of four consulting firms, recipient of career awards from the American Psychological Association and the International Society for Performance Improvement, prolific author and speaker, Carl believes that the Performance Thinking Network is his best opportunity yet for making a contribution. His ability to synthesize information from multiple fields, communicate complex ideas in plain English to non-specialists, and build excitement about making a difference with behavior science bring an intellectual and emotional spark-plug to The Performance Thinking Network.
