A local group was putting together a career development workshop, and wanted to include a section on professionals. When asked for a definition, the first thing that came to mind is that a professional is someone who gets paid to do something. While that may be true, it’s not always. I have worked with some very professional volunteers, and some very amateur employees.
What they really wanted to talk about was professionalism. Professionalism is more a state of mind. It’s a collection of attitudes and actions that over time demonstrate respect for and dedication to a specific goal, and usually that inspire respect and admiration from their colleagues and coworkers.
A true professional respects their colleagues, responds to them in a timely manner, and has reasonable expectations. They judge others by the quality of their work and by their actions, with no preconceptions or irrelevant biases.
