This week we’ve been taken to Ireland & no.10 on the sports listing. Women’s rugby and a defeat to the Scots in a World Cup Qualification match.
I like to read through these articles multiple times to find words or phrases that stand out; this weeks is:
“We’ve struggled with our set-piece this whole tournament”
I know little of Irish Women’s Rugby, so can’t comment on this teams performance – but I can say that if your opponents know your weaknesses, then surely they’ll attack them? Confidence in playing the game will get you half way there, if your opponents sense a chink in your armour, then they’ll grab you by that chink & force you out, won’t they?
Yet again this is an analogy that can be translated into daily life. Do we tell our work colleagues if we are having a bad day? Do the pros of declaring this information outweigh the cons? I guess a lot would depend on your work.
Certainly food for thought though isn’t it. Is it ever a good idea to highlight your weaknesses in a competitive environment?
