Praise for Margaret Graziano
“Margaret walks her talk!”
For the better part of a decade, Margaret Graziano has been my executive coach. As a woman, conservation professional and servant leader, Margaret’s coaching and sage advice has played a huge role in my development as a confident leader. Margaret has coached me on everything from values-centric hiring, to building highly functioning teams, to resolving conflicts and building accountability, to caring for my own physical and mental health. As a coach, Margaret walks her talk – the guidance she provides comes from her own evolving experiences and journey as a woman leader and business owner. She sees the tools of collaboration, communication, curiosity, consensus, and inclusion as strengths, not weaknesses. These are extremely challenging times to lead organizations and agencies. Margaret has taught me that being honest, authentic, transparent, and being able to show vulnerability and humanity are perhaps the most important values and skills we can call upon as we try to adapt to a very different future. It has been said that courage is not the absence of fear but the ability to act despite it. Margaret has helped me to push through perceived barriers that might otherwise hold me back from making the contribution I was put on this planet to make.

“Margaret has my highest recommendation.”
“Margaret has been a supporter and consultant of MTC Performance for 15 years or more. She is currently engaged in a coaching and mentoring program for our senior management team. In less than 90 days, Margaret has engaged in ways that have produced demonstrable results, not only in my managers, but in myself as well. Her insights and methods are spot on. Given my adherence to Patrick Lencioni’s Four Obsessions and Five Temptations, she is qualified to consult on the implementation of those disciplines, and more importantly, their practice. Margaret is supportive, highly collaborative, and very knowledgeable in her field. I believe many organizations would benefit from her approach to top tier organizational dynamics and interactions, as well as team development. She has my highest recommendation.”
