What we're watching: 
After running a soft skills class for the past few weeks, today we're reflecting on the importance of knowing and understanding key character strengths. They can define your leadership style, motivate you to take on tasks that play to your  strengths , and help you plan areas to work on. Curious about your own? Take the test here for valuable insight!  

What we're reading:  
Speaking of soft skills, we all need to develop different areas throughout the various stages of our careers. Check out this article from Fast Company to see if you're focused on the right skills to advance professionally. 
Quote we're inspired by:   
" The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed ."   --  Henry Ford
At the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education, we believe we're all leaders. You start by understanding yourself - your character strengths and your development needs - and move outward to your organization. This Thursday we're talking about soft skills, but our next online class tackles some of the 'hard' skills needed by leaders in social impact organizations. Mission Impossible? Measuring Outcomes and Impact, starting October 17th, will help you set up a monitoring plan so that you can prove your impact. Sign up by Monday, September 26th and get $50 off the course fee!

Have a great day and see you in two weeks for our next Three Thought Thursday!
