Communication Tip #44
“Are you practicing your profession?”
That’s what Pastor Dave DeSelm asked yesterday (Sunday). In his context, Dave was reminding us who attend Fellowship Missionary Church to continue to “walk the talk.”
As a Christian, I found Dave’s use of the word “profession” fascinating and motivating.
As a communication consultant, I found it exciting and mind stretching.
We business professionals use that word and its derivatives (e.g. “professionals”) without realizing we are in the business of professing: openly communicating who we are by what we say and do.
Are we, indeed, practicing what we profess? Are we living the careers with which we resonate?
If not, what are we actually professing? Because, like it or not, we are.
