Traditional Chinese philosophy can serve as a rich source of insight for management studies. The aim of this article is to discuss two main aspects of Dao philosophy, non-action management and non-action leadership. The article makes two contributions to knowledge. First, it outlines a conceptual model of non-action management based on Dao De Jing. Second, it provides a conceptual model of non-action leadership based on Laozi's three essentials to supplement the non-action management model. It is argued that the non-action management and non-action leadership model offers new opportunities for management research and practice, as well as contributing to existing leadership theories. The article concludes with a discussion of the practical value of considering Dao philosophy as an underlying approach to management.
