In this session, Mark introduces a new kind of knowledge worker, a learning worker, who is emerging in the workplace. These new learning workers, Mark labels “Hemisapiens,” employ collaborative leadership, leverage cognitive computing, and create and apply a learning strategy for everything they do. Most notably, Hemisapiens apply methods from the learning sciences and technology to “turbo charge” their cognitive abilities, and hence, their productivity and innovation. However, they are different besides having more brain power. They also have more courage and larger hearts than their predecessors. As a session participant, you will learn who these new learning workers are, what tools they use, why you should become one, and how you can lead them.
