Do Nothing! [Book]

Book Overview:  According to J. Keith Murnighan, Great leaders don’t do any­thing—except think, make key decisions, help people do their jobs better, and add a touch of organizational control to make sure the final recipes come out okay. In sharp contrast, most leaders are too busy actually working to do these things—and their teams suffer as a result.  Do Nothing!’s practical strategies and true stories will show you how to set high expec­tations for your team and watch it rise to the challenge. It will help you establish a healthier culture by trusting people more than they expect to be trusted. And it will help you overcome your natural tendencies toward micromanagement so you can let people do their jobs—even when you know you could do their jobs better.

“Doing too much is far worse than doing too little.  When leaders do too much, they cannot be as effective or as thoughtful or as strategic as they might otherwise be.  Even worse, their team members are underutilized and underchallenged.  Better team members are also likely to be increasingly angry – because their leader is doing what they could and should and want to be doing.  By not letting good performers do their jobs, on their own, leaders don’t allow their team members to feel proud of what they can do.  The end result is the development of dislike or even hate for a leader who butts in, as well as earning him a reputation for being a control freak and a micromanager.” ~ J. Keith Murnighan, Do Nothing!
