John J. Trakselis, CEO & Founder, CCEOC

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Chicago CEO Coaching (CCEOC). As an experienced senior executive, business leader and the CEO/president of my own company for many years now, I founded CCEOC with the express purpose of creating authentic, peer-to-peer connection and collaboration. It all begins the moment clients engage with me.

As a peer, I understand the CEO/business owner role is uniquely complex and dynamic. When one CEO connects with another, our experience shows there’s an almost immediate and automatic level of camaraderie and trust that begins to take hold, and this paves the way for the work we do at CCEOC.

We offer executive and life coaching, supplemented with business, career and personal development solutions designed to help Chicago area CEOs and senior executives discover opportunity, inspiration, ideas, possibility, significance and meaning on both an individual, one-to-one basis and within a peer group setting that yields exponential returns for participants across all dimensions of life. The outcomes we facilitate are extensive and include optimized business performance results, driven by the goals, dreams and aspirations CEOs establish or re-define as active participants in CCEOC. I invite you to explore the CCEOC site to learn more.
