Welcome to CxO Guardrails

A Personal Preface

I, like many leaders, with a common dilemma: the scarcity of time. Traditional technology books, rich yet time-consuming, and online resources, insightful but often fragmented, left a gap in the landscape of learning resources. This spurred the idea for the CxO Guardrails Series – a solution crafted for the modern leader. A resource that fits into your commute, lunch breaks, and fast-paced lifestyle, offering principle-based, directly applicable insights in a concise format.
