Being professional involves much more than dressing smartly and having a well-groomed appearance. The public at large and other business stakeholders hold certain expectations regarding how a professional must conduct herself or himself.  

Professional behaviour encompasses the interactions that one has with fellow colleagues, customers as well as leadership. It also gives guidance on how one performs their duties. But what gives guidance to ethical behaviour?  

This third instalment of our series on ethics digs into the Code of Professional Conduct.
