What does "professional" mean to you?

please share your thoughts

Professional to me is more a way of behaving than of a position or the fact that someone gets paid to do something. I have seen many people in professional positions who had absolutely no clue how to conduct themselves professionally. When one conducts themselves professionally, they are able to separate personal feelings from what needs to be done to get a job accomplished, yet they never lose sight of what is truly important. They can administer effectively, yet make others in the organization feel vital to the operations of said organization. They never lose their tempers, or let personal feelings (either positive or negative) affect their decisions.

I think it's an attitude. If you're professional, you are personable, smart, appropriately dressed, and confident.

It means that you do not need anyone else tell you to do your job, or how to do your job. You have the motivation and skills to accomplish the task.

One is paid for their services. Unfortunately, skill(s) are not at the top of the general perceived list.

It means either you're really good at it, or you get paid to do it. I like the first definition because it means I'm a professional at lots of things. The second definition, nothing.

Whatever it is you do for a living. Just because your a professional doesn't mean your good. Just a title.
