What I'm Reading Right Now: Going Pro by Tony Kern

Going Pro is Kern’s follow up to Blue Threat. It continues to build on human performance by sharing research, personal stories and observations on how to elevate professionalism, both personally and inside the entire organization.

Here’s some brief notes from the first few chapters.

  • Single unprofessional acts cascade as negative force multipliers into the system with the strong possibility of an exponential impact.
  • Individuals and organizations remain uniquely empowered to perform to higher professional standards, and in so doing, create a peer-to-peer positive force for change.
  • Mediocritters are critters of mediocrity. When they meet reality, they under-perform, and in the aftermath, blame others for the situation.
  • Elite performers (Level III Performers) say, I’m a pro because I am doing all I can to be the best I can and further the objectives of my peers, my organization, and the industry as a whole.
