Text Quotes
We know from science that nothing in the universe exists as an isolated or independent entity  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Hopelessness has surprised me with patience  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Life is creative. It makes it up as it goes along.  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Ask what’s possible, not what’s wrong. Keep asking.  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) We do as much harm holding onto programs and people past their natural life span as we do when we employ massive organizational air strikes. However, destroying comes at the end of life’s cycle, not as a first response  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Passion mutates into procedures, into rules and roles. Instead of purpose, we focus on policies. Instead of being free to create, we impose constraints that squeeze the life out of us  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) There are many benefits to this process of listening. The first is that good listeners are created as people feel listened to. Listening is a reciprocal process - we become more attentive to others if they have attended to us  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Our willingness to acknowledge that we only see half the picture creates the conditions that make us more attractive to others. The more sincerely we acknowledge our need for their different insights and perspectives, the more they will be magnetized to join us  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Listening is such a simple act. It requires us to be present, and that takes practice, but we don’t have to do anything else. We don’t have to advise, or coach, or sound wise. We just have to be willing to sit there and listen  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) I’ve wanted to see beyond the Western, mechanical view of the world and see what else might appear when the lens was changed  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) For example, I was discussing the use of email and how impersonal it can be, how people will now email someone across the room rather than go and talk to them. But I don’t think this is laziness, I think it is a conscious decision people are making to save time  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) We experience problem-solving sessions as war zones, we view competing ideas as enemies, and we use problems as weapons to blame and defeat opposition forces. No wonder we can’t come up with real lasting solutions!  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) In our daily life, we encounter people who are angry, deceitful, intent only on satisfying their own needs. There is so much anger, distrust, greed, and pettiness that we are losing our capacity to work well together  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Too many problem-solving sessions become battlegrounds where decisions are made based on power rather than intelligence  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Successful organizations, including the Military, have learned that the higher the risk, the more necessary it is to engage everyone’s commitment and intelligence  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) I think we have to notice that the business processes we use right now for thinking and planning and budgeting and strategy are all delivered on very tight agendas  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) In these troubled, uncertain times, we don’t need more command and control; we need better means to engage everyone’s intelligence in solving challenges and crises as they arise  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) I believe that the capacity that any organisation needs is for leadership to appear anywhere it is needed, when it is needed  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) A world based on machine images is a world filled with boundaries. In a machine, every piece knows its place  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) We don’t have to agree with each other in order to think well together. There is no need for us to be joined at the head. We are joined by our human hearts  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) One of the easiest human acts is also the most healing. Listening to someone. Simply listening. Not advising or coaching, but silently and fully listening  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) No longer in a relational universe, can we study anything as separate from ourselves. Our acts of observation are part of the process that brings forth the manifestation of what we are observing  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Organizations are now confronted with two sources of change: the traditional type that is initiated and managed; and external changes over which no one has control  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) I’ve found that I can only change how I act if I stay aware of my beliefs and assumptions. Thoughts always reveal themselves in behavior  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Very great change starts from very small conversations, held among people who care  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) In these troubled, uncertain times, we don’t need more command and control; we need better means to engage everyone’s intelligence in solving challenges and crises as they arise.  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) Life doesn’t move in straight lines, and neither does a good conversation  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) We could focus our efforts on discovering solutions that work uniquely for us  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) A leader is one who... Has more faith in people than they do, and . . . who holds opportunities open long enough for their competence to re-emerge.  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes) It is time to stop waiting for someone to save us. It is time to face the truth of our situation - that we’re all in this together, that we all have a voice - and figure out how to mobilize the hearts and minds of everyone in our workplaces and communities.  (Margaret J Wheatley Quotes)
