Professional Pride - A Powerful Force

Edited by: Thijs Jansen, Gabriel van den Brink, Jos Kole

Professional Pride - A Powerful Force traces a growing sense of professional pride among police officers, teachers, judges, doctors, nurses, social workers, and other professionals. The contributors offer an insightful treatment of the significance of professional pride. They not only broaden and enrich the discussion on managing professionals, but they rewrite the rules. Everyone working in a professional organization should be aware that nothing is more conductive to professionalism than simply relying on professionals and their professional pride. This insight renders many management tools and models superfluous and requires a completely different mindset of those who hold management positions within professionals' organizations. Supporting and directing this development, the book contains a wealth of positive insights, strong opinions, sound research, and true stories of people in the Netherlands and elsewhere. It is a must read for professionals, managers, organizational experts, and students.
