A chess prodigy makes good in business.
Thank you Steven for this article. This is what I was thinking when I read it.
A constant criticism I hear about chess players is that they are almost always confrontational. It is almost always win/lose for them. Maybe that is the nature of the game and probably that is also why not many of them do well in business.
So this article speaks to me on how the skills developed from chess can be powerful when it is combined with the skills learnt from the game of Bridge. Bridge teaches you how to partner in order to compete better. This is simply because business is also about having good partners for you cannot win in business all alone.
And provided you don't lose your confidence as is very possible under the constant mental onslaught that chess can bring, then you have a very powerful formula for success in business.
