PROFESSIONAL / ISM
Conceptually elusive with varied definitions, dimensions and interpretations, a term often used in the occupational and the professional world , but seldom practiced. It is immeasurable, but can determine stupendous success in one’s career, as well as decimate one’s occupation or profession. It is the foundation of every member of every profession: it is professionalism.
When you see it, you know it. Its becomes more conspicuous when you come across its antithesis. Professionalism starts with an attitude, an attitude of rational benefit.
People who are distinguished as professionals have a social standing way beyond the specific job they perform. They possess integrity, passion, vision of reality, which motivates them and others around them, towards solving problems and conflict resolution.
A professional is not someone who holds a specific degree or qualification for the job and goes through all levels and processes, because those without any qualification or degree are also called professionals provided they practice professionalism. Yes, a person who lives a life based on professionalism is a “True Professional”.
PROFESSIONALS ARE CONFIDENT IN THEMSELVES AND IN THEIR ABILITIES TO PERFORM WITH CLARITY, FOCUS AND UNSTINTED CONVICTION.
