The No Diva Rule

My friend in the music business told me their staff were sent an artist profile whenever the company signed a new rising star. In the bottom right-hand corner was a little box with the letters “DQ.” This stood for “Diva Quotient”, with the number 1 being “a treat to work with,” and 10, “run for your life!”

I was reminded of “The Diva Quotient” after reading three unrelated reports last weekend:

  • Jillian Horton’s column on brilliant doctors who are bad actors.

These three woeful tales aren’t just stories of abuse of power, but of abuse of talent.
