Doing Nothing to Achieve More - J. Keith Murnighan
The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce and Anderson’s Bookshop invites you to attend the General Membership Luncheon Monday, July 23, for a presentation on a novel idea: doing nothing!
Distinguished author and Kellogg School of Management professor J. Keith Murnighan will discuss the subject of his latest book, “DO NOTHING!: How to Stop Overmanaging and Become a Great Leader”. Managers are often guilty of taking on too much work. Whether it’s the stress of making sure the job gets done correctly and on time, or the inability to properly delegate, managers simply work too much! Managers are leaders, and as such they are at their best when they are making the key decisions, planning strategies and helping employees do their jobs better.
Murnighan will talk about how doing nothing can actually add to a company’s success. He will discuss the key ways in which letting employees do more will create a more organized and productive business.
The luncheon will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Chicago Marriott Naperville, located at 1801 Naper Boulevard in Naperville.
Seating is limited, so preregistration is strongly encouraged. Cost to attend is $25 for Chamber Members, $30 at the door, and $35 for nonmembers.
To register or for more information, please contact Lisa Spaeth at 630-544-3365.
