Question Sport | Ego in sports: a strength, a weakness or a bit of both?
Ego in sports: a strength, a weakness or a bit of both?
It is well known, the ego holds an important place in sports. Some have an oversized ego, others would benefit from developing it. One thing is certain, there are many factors that influence the “size” of the ego. This Question Sport approaches the subject based on the latest knowledge on athletic identity and will explore both the advantages of a strong athletic identity and its disadvantages which can have an impact on learning capacity, motivation, well-being and performance of the athletes. Through the presentation of sample cases, you will discover keys to increase the ego of athletes (and even coaches), or reduce it.
