Coach Plus Leadership Coaching

We offer two coaching services.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative process for growing and maximizing your potential. Many people think that whenever a consultant works one-on-one with leaders, such problem solving and advice is coaching.

We believe skillful coaching goes well beyond purveying information or even co-problem solving. Our coaching centers on helping you make breakthrough discoveries that are transformative. We help you:

  • Focus your challenges and desires
  • Make discoveries for insight and clarity
  • Create a clear path forward
  • Identify and develop your own unique leadership

And unlike coaches whose only training is in coaching, we use our expertise in organizations to help you live in your organizational system with more savvy, skill, and ease—not by giving you advice but by widening your field of vision and developing your capacity.

Why Coaching Credentials Matter

Coaches with certifications have studied coaching as a discipline, worked with mentor coaches, and coached for many hours. To maintain our certifications, we must continue to take courses and follow strict ethical guidelines.

In addition, Gestalt Professional Certified Coaches distinguish ourselves by our emphasis on discovery, presence, the importance of your whole context, exploration of possibilities, and showing unqualified support for your growth.

Merryn Rutledge holds triple certifications: Gestalt Professional Certified Coach (GPCC™), International Coaching Federation Professional Certified Coach (PCC), and Board Certified Coach (BCC). These credentials complement a doctorate in leadership and years of experience as an organizational development expert.
