Limited Professionalism

When one agrees to take on responsibility, he/she must live to expectations. For instance, when one accepts an assignment, he/she should meet the terms of the contract. Such terms could include supplying the needed items or being present on location. Unfortunately, even Seasoned Practitioner (SP) seemed to have missed out on the memo of professionalism.

One time, SP agreed to make sure Popular Celebrity (PC) would have the glitz and glamour for her photoshoot. Any project involving PC means that it’s in the big league. Companies that hire PC to endorse products spend an arm and a leg just to get the nod of her management. Even if her services can be pricey, companies know that PC is an effective endorser.

Confident that everything was going to happen as planned, SP did not bother to show up during the actual project. SP instructed an assistant on what to do and how to handle PC. The production team, meanwhile, although disappointed at the absence of SP, proceeded to brief PC. As time was moving, the shoot was about to start. Suddenly, the team had a major problem. The outfit that was agreed upon for PC to wear was missing. The assistant could not find it. Panic set in and a call was made to SP.

SP, knowing that her reputation would be at stake and that she did not want to be embarrassed, apologized and said that she will do what she could. After a few minutes, SP said that she will bring the outfit personally to the location. It turned out that the location was a few hours away from the city and SP had to travel all the way to the area.

To save face, as the faux pas had already wasted much time and incurred costs, SP said that she will attend personally to PC’s needs. In fact, she even said that she will waive the payment. SP doing something for free delighted the production. Somehow, their frustration was appeased. The project started to roll. SP was around and made sure PC looked fine. As the day was about to end, SP thought that she would be able to go home immediately. To her shock, she learned that the commitment was for two days. As she had given her word, she had no choice but to stay until the very end of the project.
