Profession or Status?

By Diego Nascimento

It’s been a while since I have researched and observed different attitudes in the workplace.  I discovered several groups. One consists of people who value the status offered by the position rather than the real benefits that can be shared with the team or even the entire company. The Professional of the Future, as he is called by several writers and entrepreneurs, applies his theoretical/practical knowledge in all situations and prefers to exclude pride from his “life dictionary.” In place of this word and other such harmful words to the career of any person are inserted the words ethics,commitment, solidarity and humility. Behind the scenes in his department, there are professionals who will be honored to receive a “Congratulations” or “Thank You”, even in simple, everyday situations.  His performance in the company is not robotic; it involves his human side. His title, uniform or badge can say something, but his attitudes represent much more!


So, what do you think ?
