Author J. Keith Murnighan recently discussed his management philosophy, at a Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
His book, entitled Do Nothing!: How to Stop Overmanaging and Become a Great Leader, focused on reducing the large amount of work that managers from companies take on daily.
“I just think it is really important to do the one thing that he said, and that is ‘trust your employees’,” said Tami Andrew, the interm president and CEO of the Naperville Area Chamber.
Murnighan suggests managers take on his leadership method, which is simply thinking, then acting, to get a desired outcome of any project.
The author is also a professor at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
