MYTH *BUSTED* - Hiring A+ Talent No So Important

A Stanford study killed the sacred cow "you gotta hire rockstars."

Over 15 years, professors James Baron and Michael Hannan studied 200 startup companies in Silicon Valley.

What they discovered was truly astounding....

While "star" cultures did produce some of the biggest successes, they also produced some of the biggest failures and highest degree of internal fighting.

A different culture, however, existed in some companies. These businesses were consistently the most profitable, fastest to go to IPO, and - incredibly - never went bankrupt. Watch the video above to learn more.

Obviously hiring solid talent with the right mix of skills, experience, goals, personality, and conation are all crucial.

But rockstars?

Think twice. May not be your top priority after watching the video above.
