Award-winning business professor Keith Murnighan teaches us how doing less will get you more in "Do Nothing!" Would you like to go on holiday without having to check daily that your team is doing its job? Can you turn off your phone and your email, knowing that everything is under control? For most managers this is just a dream. But Do Nothing! reveals that such a 'hands off' approach is both achievable and highly effective. In this compelling and imaginative book, award-winning business professor Keith Murnighan shows how really successful leaders create a culture of independence and trust.
