The Professional: Defining the New Standard of Excellence at Work (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 399

In today’s globalized world where every person’s actions have the capability to make an impact, it becomes all the more essential to understand the meaning of a true professional. The Professional: Defining The New Standard Of Excellence At Work is a guide that helps the reader do just that.

Summary Of The Book

The Professional: Defining The New Standard Of Excellence At Work is an attempt by the author to redefine the true meaning of the term “professional”, by not only focussing on a person’s skill set, but more importantly, focussing on their attitude that is needed to succeed in a globalized world.

The author goes on to say that traditionally, a professional was someone known to possess the right qualifications and the required work experience needed for a particular job. However, he argues that that even though there are thousands of such so-called professionals, they opt to abuse their power for their own personal good. In such a case, there is an inherent need to sift out the best of them from the worst when an outdated definition of a professional no longer works. This is the very idea that forms the basis of the book, and the author calls for a need to redefine a professional who goes beyond mere aptitude and commits to doing the right thing not only for their business but going further and doing it for the entire society.

The book aims at helping the readers attain newer heights as professionals. The author has peppered it with tips that teach the reader ways in which they can stand out as true professionals vis-a-vis merely skilled ones. The book is also packed with advice on how to deal with a career crisis arising out of recessions and business scams. The author, through personal excerpts and anecdotes, guides the reader on the principles and plans of action required to be successful in any field of work that they choose to get into.

The Professional: Defining The New Standard Of Excellence At Work spells out the implicit and explicit code of conduct for someone aspiring to be a true professional in the right sense.

If you think you are a professional..give it a thought after reading "The Professional"

Its a great book with lots of real life examples to set benchmarks for a professional. Content goes in good flow and simple language to keep your interest till last..
A glimpse of the content come from how Bagchi defines a Professional: 1. He should be able to certify his work 2. He should be able to work without supervision and 3. He should work with integrity. Judge your self on these 3 grounds and read the book to find more about Professionalism.

Investment on self

There are only a few cult books which will leave an indelible mark on you from the first reading itself. This is one of them.

I had read Subroto Bagchi's "Go, kiss the world" and was captivated by the simple language used. That was a gift from a friend. This book was a purchase (Not from flipkart) by me.

When I started reading it I thought I can finish this in a day or two. However by the end of the first chapter the realization became heavy that this is not such a book. I took full 2 weeks to cover it as the words are quite pithy while being simple.

Suggest one and all to go for this book

The best.

For me, the title of this book should be THE BEST!
After raising the bar with his earlier books like Go Kiss The World & The High-Performance Entrepreneur, Mr. Bagchi creates a record with this book (Oh yes, Olympic fever is still there).
Some of the highlights from this bestseller by co-founder of MindTree are as follows.
1. Real facts based on professional life.
2. Easiest language to understand.
3. Clear instructions to follow.
4. Most imp thing he tells is that being professional means being human and actions which result in better contributions to self, business and society.
