The CEO Tightrope
- How to Master the Balancing Act of a Successful CEO
- By: Joel Trammell
- Narrated by: Sam Scholl
- Length: 7 hrs and 24 mins
No CEO can find a point of balance and then stand still - that's not even possible on a tightrope. The expectation is that the business must always move forward. The American CEO walks a tightrope daily...many times blindfolded and without a net below. The job of balancing the often-competing interests of a company's constituents is so challenging that the average lifespan of a newly minted CEO is around five years.
An excellent strp-by-step leadership manual

I'm not a CEO...
That said, this book has great advice for leadership in general. It also gives a solid idea in what to look for in your next potential employer. It's no surprise, like everything in life, solid leadership needs balance.
