Day 177: Professionalism

Over the last few weeks a topic keeps coming up that I think warrants a post. Professionalism.
I attended a leadership conference a few weeks ago and one of the speakers discussed professionalism. He made a great point - it does not matter if you are the guy/girl that takes out the garbage or the owner of a business - you must be professional.

I had a conversation with a woman last night about a person she hired that is not acting professional. For example: Constantly texting, walking around without shoes on in the office.  This person is very young. It got me thinking how are we teaching out kids about professionalism when we really live in an everything goes society?

I have added to my push goals to write an article and get it published somewhere to help educate young kids entering the workforce how to be professional.   I really think it is so important! Who knows where the job market will be in the future. The difference between getting the job you want or need may just be how professional you are!
