October 5, 2015•81 min
Joel Trammell is the founder and CEO of Khorus, which he founded with the mission of helping chief executives run their businesses as effectively as possible. A 20-year software veteran, he is also chairman emeritus of the Austin Technology Council and co-founder and managing partner of private equity firm Lone Rock Technology Group. In addition, he serves on the boards of several public, private, and nonprofit companies. In his book, The CEO Tightrope, recognized by the 2015 Axiom Business Book Awards, Joel masterfully explains how no CEO can find a point of balance and then stand still—that’s not possible on a tightrope, or in the role of chief executive. The expectation is that the business will always move forward. Drawn from years of study and experience, the book explores the various points of balance that challenge every CEO. Joel identifies what it looks like when a CEO has lost balance and offers modern techniques and approaches for regaining it.
