Jian Ghomeshi Is a Workplace Reminder that Character Should Trump Talent

Talent and commitment are important. But when assessing employees or potential employees, it is also critical to determine if they have the character required to be a good employee and strive to be an even better one. Overlooking bad behaviour is easy, especially when it involves top performers. But leadership is not supposed to be easy. With all due respect to anyone victimized in this case, this incident serves as a stark reminder of the risks that stem from ignoring character in the workplace.
