What’s the best way to create a good team?

Should you hire consultants? | A Founder’s Notebook

Should you hire consultants? My view: Almost never, for two reasons: “the company you build is the team you build”. So your goal is not to “execute a set of tasks”, but to “build an outstanding team. Your biggest challenges often require you to “figure things out”. External consultants rarely figure the hard things out for you, and if they do, much of the knowledge is theirs, not your company’s.
