Delegate More

Selena Cuffe’s company, Heritage Link Brands, imports wine from South Africa, exclusively from vineyards owned by members of the indigenous black population. If Cuffe could improve in one area, she would like to bolster her delegation skills. “When you come into a company as the CEO, you can identify the existing experts,” she told Inc. in 2007. “But as someone who founds a business, who helps to build the organization and identifies all the human capital and the resources that go into taking the business forward, it’s very difficult to let go. To me, delegation is all about feeling comfortable with the fact that people are going to do things better than you, because that’s why you hired them.”
