Episode 56: How Gratitude Can Amplify Your Life and Leadership - with Alexsys Thompson
We all know that gratitude is important, but guest expert Alexsys Thompson, speaker, published author, and member of the Forbes Coaches Council reveals why it’s more than a key virtue… it’s THE key to open the door for every other virtue as well! She’ll share her personal journey and show you the benefits and ways to align with those callings that tug on your soul, as well as give the steps to becoming a gratitude forward leader and the power that grace can have on all of us.
Behind the Scenes
My life’s mission is to create safe spaces for souls to show up. Throughout my life, it’s manifested in a variety of ways: friend, mother, partner, leader, entrepreneur, executive coach, conflict resolutionist, keynote speaker, author, intuitive, integration coach, and evolving human.
I love nature and animals; my current interest is learning all I can about Alpacas. I love to read. I lose time writing and working in the garden. I enjoy creating physical spaces that nurture community, conversation, and connection. I treasure the early morning quiet time with a cup of warm tea, my gratitude practice, and meditation to set the pace for the day, and often wonder why it took me so long to make this my ritual.
People amaze me in all kinds of ways. I tend to see their aura (their truest nature) and all the possibility that exists there. As a result, my executive/integration coaching practice has evolved significantly to include the essence of the whole being. For every amazing soul I’m blessed to support, I weave together a unique combination of tools. Each coaching relationship starts with a gratitude practice. Time and time again, I see that this is the key that opens all the other doors within a person for exploration. This is such a pivotal point of the journey that I have created two Gratitude Journals to help guide the process.
Something most people do not know about me is I’m funnier than I’m often experienced. I’m working on this part of how I show up. I’m shy by nature and prefer small groups of people to large crowds, so when people see me in front of a room, this seems weird to them. I love to laugh and sing off key. Some of the pictures of me on this site are a bit less traditional by design. In order to have the sincere privilege of working and seeing you, I want to lead the way by being seen myself. This has not always been the case, and I’m learning that vulnerability is my superpower.
If you have read through to here, I want to thank and invite you to join me in various ways: through community in the Trybal Sanctuary, Integration Coaching, Retreats, or as part of one of my creative projects, currently my Gratitude Series.
