Joel Trammell’s The CEO Tightrope is a wonderful book, not only about the balancing act needed to be a successful CEO but also about general leadership principles. The vast majority of the wisdom in this book works well for leaders at any level in an organization. I had the privilege of working for Joel for 7 years at his successful NetQoS venture and can tell you that the advice he offers in this book works in the real world. If you are in a leadership position at work, do yourself a favor and read this book – then put the concepts into practice.
