When hiring managers, are you careful to avoid those with quick tempers?

The Apostle Paul wrote, "The overseer must...not be quick tempered" (Titus 1:7 NASB).

Quick-tempered managers make mistakes and kill morale. No one likes a hot-headed boss. When considering a finalist for a management position, ask previous employers and references for examples of coolness under fire, or when they lost their temper. If a pattern of a short fuse emerges, back off and don't offer a job, no matter how good they look otherwise. The solid, even-tempered team members will build a successful organization.
