It is possible, however, to outline some of its meanings: Gracious attitudes and behaviors are “win-win”. Gracious folks respect others and let that respect show in their actions. Gracious professionals make a valued contribution in a manner pleasing to others and to themselves as they possess special knowledge and are trusted by society to use that knowledge responsibly. In the long run, gracious professionalism is part of pursuing a meaningful life. One can add to society and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that you have acted with integrity and sensitivity.
