Talent management system

From Talent Management blog:

No one likes bad news. The worse the news, the less we want to hear about it, especially when it deals with issues that make us sick to our stomach.

Consider natural disasters such as the earthquake in Haiti or tsunami in Japan. Horrible death and destruction rained on thousands of people. There is little or nothing we can do about those calamities. Compare that to the Penn State Jerry Sandusky case. That is a failure of human proportions that we should do something about. Maybe that is why we want to put it behind us. It reminds us of our faults as human beings.

I mentioned the five aspects of life in an earlier column — integrity, health, family, career and all else. The Sandusky case is a classic example of integrity failure, and it is a talent management issue. The most important things in life and work are integrity, values, ethics and morality. When we fail in this area we damage our core. It is so revolting that when something happens beyond the pale, even close friends deny it because they can’t accept it.
