Mindset of Professionalism
When we think of every top professional, no matter if it is in the field of art, sports, music or dance, something stands out about the way they perform or play. Often we look at these people with envy, and wonder how they perform at such high levels and yet present themselves as role models that others aspire to be around or emulate.
High achievers have one commonality, they never give up. They set goals, devise strategies to achieve them and execute what needs to be done. When something doesn’t work, true professionals reassess, reestablish their goals and remain determined to achieve them. We call this Professionalism; it is something which is needed to reach one’s full potential in life.
The idea of professionalism is at the heart of what do with young people. Professionalism is a transferable skill, and we have developed a mentoring plan that teaches these skills. Professionalism can be transferred into the classroom, just as retired professionals athletes or artists have transferred what they have learned into a new career or part of their life. Under our mentoring plan, emotional intelligence is recognised within sports, art, music or dance where it flourishes naturally. We then transfer emotional intelligence into classroom studies and apply the same natural intelligence to formal study and assessments.
Our Professionalism mentoring programme can be delivered as a standalone programme or as part of an integrated syllabus housed within any of our Academy models of learning.
