Technician vs. Professional: which are you?
post # 237 — November 13, 2006 — a General post
What is professionalism? How do you achieve it yourself, and how do you manage in order to elicit it in others?
What, for example, does it mean to be a great secretary, compared only to being a good one? The answers will influence how we traditionally think of professionalism. It’s not just applicable to those with advanced degrees.
Are you a real professional or just a highly-paid technician?
This second episode in my Career Development podcast series, entitled “Real Professionalism” is all about the difference between being just a technician and being a true professional, including:
- the key attitudes and character traits that make a true professional;
- the difference between real professionalism and self-interested professionals;
- what managers can do to cultivate professionalism.
