Professional Self-Concept of the Manager as a Fundamental Condition of his or her Professional Development

The article specifies the essence of the "professional self-concept" notion, which is considered as a dynamic system of evaluative opinion of the manager with respect to his or her professional qualities, motives and value orientations, style and effectiveness of his or her work, career, methods of interaction with partners, professional experience, which ensure self-regulation of behaviour and relations in the professional sphere and planning of self-development and self-realisation in profession. It allocates components of the professional self-concept: cognitive, emotional, behavioural and its components - real, ideal, dynamic and fantastic self. It offers strategies of professional making of the manager depending on the level of self-concept development: primitive functioning, career strategy, actualisation of self in profession and creative self-expression. It justifies a necessity of study of methods and means of formation of a positive self-concept, which would ensure realisation of the strategy of creative self-expression of the manager.
