Mark Salisbury is a professor, leader, speaker, author, consultant and expert on the new learning economy. Mark was the founder of Vitel, Inc., a knowledge management solution provider for the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Laboratories. Currently, he is a professor of leadership and change management at the University of St. Thomas and CEO of Mark Salisbury & Associates.
As one of the keynote speakers at the 2017 Performance Improvement Conference, Mark will introduce a new kind of knowledge worker, a learning worker, who is emerging in the workplace. These new learning workers, whom Mark calls “Hemisapiens,” use 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.
Mark will explain who these new learning workers are, what tools they use, why you should become one and how you can lead them.
