Are you frustrated in facing a really complex problem? Have all your attempts to solve it failed? That is precisely when you must resist the temptation to hire a "rock star" or savior - someone who can magically solve all your problems simultaneously. I often see companies who want someone to come in, understand a complex situation, create a strategy to solve it, then execute the strategy singlehandedly, then when it succeeds, hire a team to build on that success. One magical person who takes all the risk, possesses all the knowledge, has a wide range of incredibly diverse skills, and gets results without rocking the boat, causing trouble or needing much help from anyone else in the firm. They want a unicorn - a mythical creature that lives only in their mind's eye.
