“A Players” Change the World…

“I’ve built a lot of my success off finding these truly gifted people and not settling for B and C players but really going for the A players and I found something. I found that when you get enough A players together – when you go through the incredible work to find, you know, five of these A players – they really like working together because they never had a chance to do that before. And they don’t wanna work with B and C players and so it becomes self policing. And they only wanna hire more A players. And so you build up these pockets of A players and it propagates. And that’s what the Mac team was like. They were all A players. And these were extraordinarily talented people. So.” – Steve Jobs, The Lost Interview, on the Mac Team (40:30):
