What’s the drill – July 2: Re-defining weakness

This morning I enjoyed a coffee talk with a fellow Applied Improviser. Deep into conversation, he shared this gem:

“A weakness is just an over-developed strength”.

This one threw me. Imagine if everything we once thought was a weakness – something that held us back before – could be spun in a way that made us less critical of ourselves, more accepting of others, and more growth oriented?

Would this change our view of let’s say, performance reviews, or even job interviews?

What is your definition of ‘weakness’?
