Book cover, "Empowered Leadership"
Doug Meyer-Cuno ’85 is a ForbesBooks author.

Ever wonder if you’re a micromanager? Doug Meyer-Cuno, a 1985 Furman University graduate, has a new book that helps diagnose the managerial malady and steer leaders toward recovery – “The Recipe For Empowered Leadership: 25 Ingredients For Creating Value & Empowering Others.”

Meyer-Cuno offers a peek into the book in an article he penned for Florida Weekly. In it, he wrote, “Most leaders believe they should have all the answers and not demonstrate weakness. But a servant leader shows great strength and awareness by putting employees first and focusing on the growth and well-being of their people.”

Meyer-Cuno is an entrepreneur, mentor and ForbesBooks author. He founded a food ingredients distribution company, Carolina Ingredients, and expanded it into a nationally recognized and award-winning industrial seasoning manufacturer before it was acquired by Mitsubishi in 2019. He is founder of Empowered Leadership, which helps entrepreneurs, business owners and CEOs scale their companies by empowering their teams. Meyer-Cuno earned his bachelor’s in international commerce through an individualized curriculum program at Furman. He is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Owner/President Management program.
