The CEO

Every CEO is unique and different.  Now there is a revelation…

Most CEOs are multi-talented, courageous and optimistic. Depending on the day…a CEO’s life can be rewarding, difficult, exhilarating, worrisome, you name it.

You are not alone, but at times life can get a bit lonely. But you are not actually alone.

Sometimes you might feel you are surrounded by:

  1. Shareholders
  2. Major Investors
  3. Angel Investors
  4. Board of Directors
  5. Senior Team
  6. Employees
  7. Professional Advisors
  8. Creditors
  9. Customers
  10. The Community

Could you use some help to break out of a comfort zone …or help to change some outdated, unproductive leadership styles?

Are you getting complete candor from your senior team of trusted lieutenants, especially during challenging times?

Maybe you could benefit from working with a CEO Coach.

What We Offer

CEO Coaching by Jim McHugh is embedded in all project work. All of our project work has a significant connection to the CEO and his/her team; we have worked with a diverse range of CEOs.

One-on-one CEO Coaching can also be done with Jim McHugh on a regular or as needed basis. This 1-1 format is separate from a specific consulting engagement. At the CEO’s request, it can also be performed with other members of senior management.

Why would you choose Jim to be your trusted coach and advisor?  We could discuss it at length here, but instead we ask you to visit our ‘What Clients Say’ page to see what other experienced executives have said about Jim and his coaching style.

Coaching Content

‘Coaching’ is a broad term that can cover a lot of topics.

Our Focus: The coaching programs address leadership, strategy, goal setting, planning and performance.  Our work together will help understand where the company is today, where you should point the company for the short and long term, and your (you the CEO) unique place within that ever-changing landscape.  The testimonials mentioned above speak to how Jim adds value to this process…”He is great listener…he is a patient coach…he has an arsenal of experiences with a great variety of companies…he can benchmark situations based on experience or provide fresh analysis as appropriate.”

Not Our Focus: Jim’s coaching does not cover behavioral analysis, psychological testing, specific personal skill development, or most aspects related to negotiating family conflict, unless that conflict is related to the business strategy and performance topics noted above.  We have connections with other professionals who specialize in these aspects of coaching if a referral is needed.

Coaching Methods

Jim does not have a ‘packaged’ service – all CEO Coaching interactions are tailored to the needs and budgets of our clients.

To communicate, we use a combination of current, low-cost technologies such as Skype, Google Docs and Hangouts, as well as good old face-to-face meetings and phone conversations. We will use the appropriate tools and methods that fit the particular communication style of the CEO.
