Professionalism From A To Z
26 Qualities of a Career-Minded Person
Imagine what it would be like to have King Solomon, John C. Maxwell, Zig Ziglar, Socrates, Mother Teresa, and Steven Wright at the Super Bowl of workshops interjecting personal anecdotes, points of clarification and emphasis, restatements, unique perspectives, and clever comments. Now that’s a workshop! What’s more, the entire event would be recorded, transcribed, edited, and published as a book called, "Professionalism from A to Z".
Professionalism from A to Z was written both as a beginning-to-end adventure in professionalism and as 26 standalone opportunity sessions.
What People Have Said...
“Professionalism from A to Z is a book of treasures! Every page is filled with golden
nuggets of truth and gems of wisdom. Devour it with a highlighter in hand and know
that if you apply even one tenth of what you read, every area of your life will be richer
because of it!”
Tom Ziglar -- CEO Ziglar, Inc. “Dreams are the edges of the puzzle of your life.”
A Tom Ziglar quote inspired by the book.
“Clancy Cross helps us understand that professionalism is who we are, not something
we set out to do. He has weaved a wonderful mosaic of story, statement and quote.
Whether a quote is the cart or the horse, I found the pattern of story, statement and
quote to be highly entertaining, often challenging to my core beliefs and relieving me
with the notion that common sense is still O.K.”
Robert F. Chelle -- Founding Director Crotty Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership; and Fifth Third Bank
Entrepreneur-In-Residence University of Dayton, School of Business.
“Clancy Cross provides a fast-paced call to action on issues that strike at the heart of what it means to be a professional. For industries with groups or individuals who struggle with professionalism (ahem, lawyers), the ideas presented can help change core behaviors. Clancy captures the way he lives in his writing.”
Chad Burton -- Attorney, Principal at Burton Law.
“If motivation is a muscle and inspiration the result, then this book is the tool you need to increase your mental and spiritual fitness.”
David Hart -- Skydiver, Author and Speaker.
“Professionalism and Optimism go hand in hand. In ‘Professionalism from A to Z’ Clancy keeps the message positive and the spirit strong with uplifting quotes and thought-provoking anecdotes. Being professional is all about ‘professing’ a positive (optimistic) image and attitude in everything you do. If you are not positive, then you are not “professing”—you are just “complaining” and there is nothing professional about that!”
Troy Kaper -- Entertainer; Lifetime Friend.
“With clever organization, concise writing, and compelling examples—given by “guest lecturers” from around the world, Clancy Cross has created a wonderfully engaging and instructive book. ‘Professionalism from A to Z’ charts a wise path to integrity with stops along the way to visit traditional values, contemporary culture, social purpose, and individual growth. It’s as inspirational as it is fun, and is sure to provide renewing sustenance on anyone’s life journey.”
