Another Lesson Learnt

Though I am a Marketing Faculty, but I have always had a soft corner for soft skills.
At one time, I was training students on "How to handle interviews" and conducting mock interviews mostly asking standard questions like Tell me about yourself, etc.

One answer which has stayed back in my memory, gave me a fresh perspective. I had asked one student the typical question "What are your strengths and weaknesses?"

The student answered "Boldness is my strength and boldness is my weakness". True, boldness applied in moderation or at the right place is a strength but rash boldness can put you in trouble and become your weakness. I was certainly impressed by the out of box approach.

I gained a fresh perspective on how our strength can become our weakness and vice versa. Thank you, students.
