NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Doug Meyer-Cuno, founder of Empowered Leadership, an organization helping entrepreneurs, business owners, and CEOs scale their companies, announced the publication of The Recipe for Empowered Leadership: 25 Ingredients for Creating Value and Empowering Others. The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes.
The Recipe for Empowered Leadership: 25 Ingredients for Creating Value and Empowering Others was inspired by Meyer-Cuno's realization that his own micromanagement tendencies often stood in the way of company success. In this book, Meyer-Cuno shares his growth path – how he went from a micromanager whose need for control stymied innovation and progress to a servant leader. Sourcing wisdom from his experience growing Carolina Ingredients from a one-person operation into a multimillion-dollar manufacturing company, Meyer-Cuno's book is a step-by-step guide for others who seek to uplift their organizations.
"I had become so entrenched in the day-to-day tasks of each role in the company," recalls Meyer-Cuno. "I lost sight of what my role required most: leadership."
Segmented into five critical pillars, Meyer-Cuno believes in the power of Vision, Core Culture Values, Authenticity, Transparency, and Gratitude in determining what it means to be a leader. Upon this foundation, Meyer-Cuno expands into the finer points of how stagnant leaders can go from working in their company to working on it.
The Recipe for Empowered Leadership: 25 Ingredients for Creating Value and Empowering Others is available on Amazon today.
