Organizations can’t do without professionals and giant organizations just can’t live without real professionals. Leaning towards the capabilities and proficiency of real professionals, one should understand the terminology of ‘professionalism’ from where the journey begins. The art of being a good professional is having a blend of appropriate knowledge, skills, attitude, efforts and relationships within the organization and to the outer-sets as well which might include as one’s testimonies etc. This paper marks a sheer distinction between employees and real professionals. The mark of real professionals creates organizations as learning establishments. Having a tag of just an employee is not like spark of the traits and qualities the real professionals contain in themselves to be outstanding and push the organization unanimously to prosper.
