A young Australian entrepreneur and self-made millionaire presents a counterintuitive guide to succeeding in today’s business world To be unprofessional is not to be disrespectful. It is not to be reckless or lazy. It is not to be unpunctual, badly presented or poorly spoken. To be unprofessional is to be real. It is to create a vision that is unborrowed from the past. It is to develop products that genuinely ‘wow’ your audience. It is to think of marketing strategies that the management consultants don’t have diagrams or buzz words for yet. It is to think original thoughts and speak of proactive ideas that haven’t yet been documented in the academic playbooks. At just 26 years old, Jack Delosa knows more than you’d expect about business and entrepreneurship. A self-made millionaire by 24, Delosa is an award-winning entrepreneur and educator who has built several start-ups into successful thriving businesses. In UnProfessional, Delosa reflects on his business adventures and offers practical how-to advice on topics such as becoming a market leader on a shoestring budget, becoming the go-to person in your industry to win more business faster, how to manage and lead other people toward your vision and why it’s important to fail fast. The business world has changed. What worked in the past will not work today. Offering a fresh perspective on the challenges of starting and running a successful business, UnProfessional is an ideal guide for Australia’s current crop of forward-thinking entrepreneurs of any age.

Are lessons ever really learned? Incredibly detailed and highly emotive, The Unprofessional Soldier gives a first-person account of the Mesopotamian campaign of the Great War. David Alexander has cleverly interwoven his grandfather's original manuscript, diaries and recollections of conversations together, with additional details of the wider context of the campaign. The result is a moving tale of what drives a man to become a soldier and motivates him to fight, to kill and to survive. Insights into military authority, the narrative of wartime decision-making, the ebb and flow of battlefield successes and failures, and the detail of local tactics are balanced by descriptions of day-to-day living and surviving in harsh and dangerous environments where the combination of disease and Arab attacks were as damaging to the British forces as were the Turks themselves. And the images of war are evocative. The bloated bodies of comrades in the desert sun. The anger and rage produced by the instant and violent death of a fellow soldier from a gaping head wound. The cold accounts given by the Battalion's 'hangman'. The failed attempt at aerial re-supply of the besieged and starving British army at Kut-al-Amara. But Alexander has also included the shades of regret and how a man can justify killing another expressed in his grandfather's own words. A fascinating, well-researched tale which makes one contemplate the futility of war.

Abstract : A role of ethics in the medical context is to protect the interests, freedoms and well-being of patients. A critical analysis of unprofessional conduct by medical practitioners registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) requires a better understanding of the specific ethics misconduct trends. To investigate the objectives the case content and sanctions of all guilty decisions related to unprofessional conduct against HPCSA-registered medical practitioners in the period 2007 to 2013 were analysed. A mixed methods approach was followed. The quantitative component focused on annual frequency data regarding the number of decisions taken against practitioners, number of practitioners, number of specific sanctions and categories. Relatively few medical practitioners (between 0.11% and 0.24%) are annually found guilty of unprofessional conduct. The annual average number of guilty decisions per guilty medical practitioner ranged between 1.29 and 2.58. The three most frequent sanctions imposed were fines between ZAR10 000 and ZAR15 000 (28.29%), fines between ZAR1 000 and ZAR8 000 (23.47%) and suspended suspensions between 1 month and 1 year (17.37%). The majority of the unprofessional conduct involved fraudulent behaviour (48.4%), followed by negligence or incompetence in evaluating, treating or caring for patients (29%). Unethical behaviour by medical practitioners in South Africa occurs relatively infrequently.

Abstract: The nursing profession is focused on serving others and has high expectations that each member behaves professionally and ethically, as articulated in nursing codes of practice and conduct. Where these are not upheld, inappropriate and unprofessional workplace behaviors follow. Regrettably, unprofessional behavior is neither new nor constrained to the nursing profession, but is known to negatively impact staff and workplace relationships, and importantly, patient safety and care. The aim of this qualitative study was to explore Iranian nurses' experiences of professional communication between colleagues in the emergency department. Fifteen individual interviews were conducted. The overarching theme to emerge from the data was workplace communication, supported by two subthemes: unprofessional behavior and stressors in the workplace. Individually and collectively, these subthemes demonstrated staff attitudes and behaviors that are inconsistent with expectations of professional behavior and practice. Management proactively addressing unprofessional workplace behaviors is fundamental to establishing and maintaining positive workplace environments and supporting safe, quality patient care.
