Product Overview

`Moving and deeply empathetic...From richly varied experiences, Bagchi explains how to conduct one's career with both intelligence and integrity. This fine book will command a deservedly wide readership.' Ramachandra Guha, author of India after Gandhi

`This book is important because it equates professionalism with an inspirational capacity to serve with total integrity---a central attribute of the most important change-makers of our time.' Bill Diayton, Founder and CEO, Ashoka

The Professional is Subroto Bagchi's most deeply felt book. Bagchi's first best-selling book, The High-Performance Enterpreneur, shared his story of building a company. His second best-seller, Go Kiss the World, was the story of his life, a motivation to young people that anyone can achieve. But as Subroto Bagchi says: `Go Kiss the World did not provide a tool kit.'

In The Professional he gives us his knowledge, based on his lifelong experience, of what it takes to be a professional, what qualities you need to become a great professional, and what are the challenges of the future a professional must be prepared for. Most importantly, he asks and gives answers to the toughest question every professional faces: Is what Iam going to do now, faced with a difficult decision and multiple options, the professional choice to make?

In a world where a `sub-prime crisis' and a `Satyam saga' were incomprehensible; where the global economic meltdown has affected the livelihoods of millions of people; where companies and individuals are routinely revealed to have made unprofessional choices, The Professional provides the explicit and implicit code of conduct---the boundaries which separate a skilled individual from a professional.

Read The Professional and find the power within you to acquire the cutting edge required for the twenty-first century workplace and gain entry into the club of professionals.
