 September 25         Professionalism 101:  Professionalism, what is it, and how do we get there?

The way business people interact with colleagues, clients, and customers speaks volumes about their level of professionalism. Individuals who exhibit higher degrees of professionalism are typically viewed in higher regard by those they work with.
