A colleague of mine from the MAPP program, Margaret Greenberg, is an executive coach and runs a organizational effectiveness consulting practice. She says some absolutely wonderful things! Margaret emphasizes fulfillment and balance in working with individuals and teams. I am big fan of Margaret’s action-based approaches. Some of my favorites of her quotes:

On concrete tasks:

“What’s the point of spending hours on something until you know what the value of it will be?”

On finishing projects and sending them off for comments:

“Get it out the door!”

And others:

“Start with WHO and WHAT you know.”

“We’re human beings, not human doings.”

Update: More Margaret-isms! (4-5-07)

* Our lives go in the direction we tell ourselves.
* What if it were easy?
* Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

* When all is said and done, more is said than done.
* What would your future self, you 20 years from now, have to say about that?
