The Power of Professionalism: The Seven Mind-Sets That Drive Performance and Build Trust
Author: Bill Wiersma--Critically acclaimed author of The Big AHA
When some Wall Street traders are willing to run the nation’s economy off a cliff to make a killing… When only 17 percent of employees believe that their leaders have their organization’s best interests at heart… When only 18 percent of Americans trust lawyers completely… When the Google search “Has U.S. business lost its way?” yields 159 million hits…
Something is very, very wrong! What’s the solution? In a word: professionalism. Professionalism is unique. It’s the ladder upon which all other organizational virtues rest.
Better professionals (and more of them) are the antidote for much of what ails business today. In the tradition of Bill Wiersma’s demonstrated ability to shift our thinking in new, more powerful ways, be prepared to see what it really means to be a professional.
In this groundbreaking book, Wiersma outlines the seven mind-sets of trusted professionals, offering a blueprint for both individuals and organizations interested in fostering a culture of professionalism.
Leadership guru Jim Kouzes noted, “There hasn’t been a book with this kind of intensity and power in years...maybe decades.” Frances Hesselbein, CEO of the prestigious Leader-to-Leader Institute has predicted that “The Power of Professionalism is destined to be one of our era’s most celebrated books.” Read the sample chapter and see why.
