Hi everyone - this version has been corrected, as the what we're watching link was not working properly in the previously sent email. Thanks, and apologies for any confusion!
What we're watching: 
Is your resume updated? How about your failure resume? There's a lot that's being said about the benefits of celebrating failure. Here's a way to really showcase how you're stretching yourself and reaching for things that don't necessarily work out. Intrigued by the concept? Take 2 minutes to join us in watching  Why you should write a failure resume and then try it!


What we're reading: 
This thought-provoking Harvard Business Review read  pushes us to think hard about how to maximize the impact of whatever we're doing, whether it be answering emails, attending meetings or  planning our exercise routine.   How might you 'operationalize' this advice? Set a daily reminder on your calendar that asks: "What's the uncomfortable action for today?" That's bound to get you some powerful results!


Quote we're inspired by:  

"Life often involves tensions between important values. This can mean difficult choices. However, we must find ways to harmonize diversity with unity, the exercise of freedom with the common good, short-term objectives with long-term goals. Every individual, family, organization, and community has a vital role to play."


Encouraging stretch goals, asking questions that get us out of our comfort zone, and the importance of balance are all fundamental concepts in the Centre's upcoming November courses. For those of you who can join us in person, our Positive Leadership course from November 1st-3rd will allow you to experience the beautiful setting of the University for Peace in Costa Rica as we engage in deep learning, dialogue, and action planning in a workshop that attracts a diverse set of international professionals. And for those of you who love the flexibility of learning and engaging in your pajamas, our 4-week Regenerative Leadership course offers you just that possibility starting on November 6th.
 
Central to our workshops and courses is the question: "So What?" In other words, how does what we cover impact you and what would you like to change? In both courses, whether online or face-to-face, you'll leave with an action plan. And, quite likely, more questions than you came in with!

See you in two weeks for our next Three Thought Thursday!
