I appreciate your enthusiasm for developing outstanding employees. I'm not sure I agree with the implications of some of your points.

It seems reasonable that everyone wants to work with the best people. But if the best won't have anything to do with those who fail to meet their high standards, how can you develop an organization composed of high performers? Does all the work fall to the leader?

Would you want to have your student body modeled on your employee model, segregated into A+ students in one group and everybody else in another? Is the "I only work with the best people" the way to build collaboration and teamwork?

I'm also bothered by your implication that anything under A+ is "substandard." I've heard about grade inflation, but that strikes me as ridiculous.
