There are many definitions that explain what means professionalism at work, some refer to the knowledge, skills and behaviors an employee shall have to do the work well, others refer to being a thinking performer, meaning not only performing your work operationally, but also thinking about the next step, seeking to contribute to organisational purposes. Nevertheless, there is other explanations that describe the soft side of “professionalism at work,” explanations that look at the depth the meaning of a professional employee. An example here it is the understanding that a professional employee is the self’s strengths, weaknesses, and the perception that through one’s strengths and weaknesses we understand the behavior of others employees.
Professionalism is the attitude where an employee is understating his/her self much better and has detached his/her personal opinions and feelings, to better understand the reality.
