While navigating through a corporate political system, you must remain professional at all times. This enables you to maintain integrity, while establishing a solid foundation for future success. You will also be viewed as a person with class by your co-workers and colleagues. This, however, does not mean you cannot follow your instincts. If you feel something is astray, you can tackle the situation as desired. Being a professional does not mean you are restricted in pointing out certain flaws or drawbacks. The key is to encounter these situations in a calm and professional manner. Whatever situation may arise, you will be able to face and overcome it with true business sense and professionalism.
