Hiring Giants

Advice on hiring team members from the legendary advertising man and agency founder David Ogilvy:

“If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants.”

A clear reminder that it’s sensible to park your ego at the door and hire people that are better than you are in all cases.
