Coaching for CEOs

What is coaching for CEOs?

Coaching for CEOs is 1-2-1 executive coaching that is tailored around the unique pressures they face. The aim is usually to achieve a specific objective relating to business performance, as the decisions made during these sessions usually have a wide-ranging impact on a business.

Executive coaching can be used to address a wide range of issues, such as how to get the best out of your team, how to manage business performance, how to handle difficult relationships or how to play to your strengths and work on your weaknesses.

A number of tools can be used to support you in executive coaching to help you get the most out of it. This can include Emotional Intelligence reports, personality reports such as MBTI and experience of a wide range of psychological development tools.

Why is this relevant for CEOs?

The CEO job role is completely unique to all other positions. In this space CEOs are faced with substantial pressure from above, below and external from their organisations.

A phenomenal amount of pressure lies with CEOs and some can find that this is often a lonely space where there can be a lack of a confidential shoulder to lean on in times of great need. This doesn’t mean that things are going badly or that the CEO is failing in any way at all, but more that it can be difficult to have a soundboard that is external to the organisations challenges and uniquely focused on the CEOs needs alone.

This is where an executive coach can work with a CEO and where they bring a tangible benefit that leads to an increase in performance.

CEOs are clearly high-performing individuals, but this does not mean that they should be neglected in terms of their personal and professional growth, as is often the case.

Why choose Novum?


Our coaches not only excel at coaching, but they are so good that they have written a number of training programmes that are accredited with prestigious universities (such as The Michael Smurfit Business School, University College Dublin) and professional bodies such as the Institute of Leadership and Management and Chartered Management Institute. 


Unfortunately there has been a rise in the number of people that have completed an unregulated course and go on to call themselves professional coaches. Our aim is to protect the industry from these courses and individuals by promoting excellence and best practice.

Our promise to you is that we will work with you until you get the results that you want and are completely satisfied.
