What on Earth Is There to Be Thankful For?

Gratitude practices and journals have been taking off in recent years, for good reason. Taking a little time to focus on what’s going well, what we appreciate about our lives and each other, can reframe and elevate our experience and even our mental health. 

For many reasons, some productive and some less so, most of us spend a lot of our time looking at what’s not working, what’s out of whack. That relentless spotlight on the negative or what’s lacking can make us lose our sense of proportion.

In our communication coaching practice at Ignite CSP, we start with what’s going well. After a lifetime of people critiquing their public speaking and communication skills, most of our clients have a hard time coming up with anything they can be grateful for or appreciate. And of course, from where we’re sitting, there is so much that’s already working! If there weren’t, they wouldn’t have made it this far.

Here’s a short list of some of what we see and appreciate in our various clients’ communication styles:



A great smile 

Pride in their team


A desire to connect 


Passion for their topic or industry





Reassuring leadership

Willingness to try 

Interesting vocabulary

Spellbinding stories
