My own career would have evolved very differently even just 20 or 30 years ago without the advancements in collaboration that companies like Flock have already created and the leadership mentality that powers it. For centuries, we’ve designed our companies and led our teams in a way that stifled many of our brightest employees, locking them in to black holes of collaboration and communication. Flock’s vision to finally help business leaders enable their employees to reach their full potential is one that’s exciting to me personally and one that will, inevitably, transform the way we work and live. This is a team on an incredible trajectory of growth, and one that’s going to make a huge impact on the world.”
