AR Professionalism 5/9 Professionalism A professional is an individual who gets involved in the profession because of his vast knowledge. A clear distinction between a professional and a non professional can be made on the basis of literature, knowledge, dedication and responsibility of both types. A professional should possess wide knowledge about his profession with relevant experience and results when it comes to the tests of these professions. The professional should be able to follow the code of conducts laid by the profession and class of that profession where as a non professional would not necessarily know all these conducts.
I being a manager have carried out decisions which needed moral implications. Being a manager I had to look after all the financial activities of the company and following a recession had to take a decision which would save my company. My decision at that time was to lower the wages of my workers and increase their work timings. This decision was hard struck by the workers but providing them with the situation and future benefits I managed to convince them. It was consistent with the code of professionalism as laid by my education and knowledge as it was in the best interest of the company. The future benefits given to the workers were lucrative enough to convince them. Specifically I used my skills to derive the scarcity of these workers to provide them with offers which they were previously devoid of. Professionalism could be viewed in the decision as my decision followed the principle of saving the company.
