Professionalism From My Perspective

I got the disease called professionalism at a very early age. Unfortunately, I think, it’s hereditary.

Below are some of the symptoms, you probably have it, too:

  1. Have ammunition ready, in other words come prepared.
  2. Word of Honor: Also means having integrity by doing what you say and saying what you mean.
  3. Takes feedback, regardless of delivery, constructively.
  4. Has team spirit.
  5. Outbursts of anger is not being authoritative, it’s just being a nuisance and eventually a hindrance to productivity.
  6. Power play is unacceptable. Don’t raise your voice, improve you argument.
  7. Shows competency and know-how in their fields of expertise
  8. Strives, hones and sharpens current skill sets
  9. Tardiness is never an excuse. It translates to disrespect.
  10. The mind is set on finding solutions.
  11. The workplace is no place for moodiness and tantrums. You’re not the only one experiencing a bad day, don’t bring it to work.
  12. The workplace is not a place to be cajoled or sweet talked into rendering deliverables.

Personally, I cannot work with people who are moody at work. Who are easily rattled and stressed by demands, deadlines and work load. Attitudes and personalities such as these take a toll on productivity.

I look forward to working with individuals who are keen on improving themselves and don’t simmer in self pity and senseless gossip. But instead are self-motivated, because their example also brings fire and drive to what I do. I like to be around these kinds of individuals and, likewise, I want to attract the same kind of people with the same mindset: productivity.
