Good developers create good technical solutions to problems.

Good consultants find that delicate balance between being themselves and not being themselves that enable them to get the job done for the client.

    For the second sentence, I would suggest a modification as follows, as it depends on what “themselves” means per individual:

    “Good consultants find that delicate balance between being CONSULTANTS and not being CONSULTANTS that enable them to get the job done for the client.”

    Maybe you did mean that with your word “themselves” as you might implicitely reflected that a consultant is – for himself – a consultant, and not a person with individual (also customer-friendly) attributes.
