Professionalism in the Workplace

Interesting topic huh? This week I attended a required employee meeting at work. A professor at the USC School of Business delivered the presentation, Professionalism in the Workplace. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the presenter, her humor, interactive style and authenticity, the topic and the content of the presentation pushed a few buttons.

The focus of the presentation was on what one needs to “do” to be accepted and embraced as a “professional” in the “professional business world”. What one needs to “do” is based on how one is perceived and judged by other professionals in this professional business world. If one learns the rules and behaves accordingly, one will be accepted as “a business professional”.

So what are the rules of the professional business world (or tribe)? Stay tuned....
