  • 5. Professional Identity • A professional calling is as much about the BE as it is about the KNOW and the DO.

[…] the negotiation between self-presentation and external evaluation can be viewed as a performance, which helps construct an individual’s social identity. 9 Source: Leafar, I edit therefore I am
