professionalism is an elitist concept. To be a “professional” puts you in a class above those who aren’t professional, to gloat in your status as someone higher than the average person. Just because you show up on time doesn’t necessarily make me better at my job than someone who doesn’t. professionalism doesn’t leave much room for human connection or vulnerability. It requires a certain guardedness at work. Do you like The Elite Concept of Professionalism ?
