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!”
“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?
