When more of the same isn't an option
   —a new field of learning is required. 


Our philosophy and approach make us unique and powerful. Newfield teaches coaching like no other coach training school. If you want to learn to transform your own world-view and capacity for action WHILE also learning to successfully coach others for sustainable change, then this program is for you. Newfield's Certified Coach Training will teach you from the inside out how to stop and take a look at how you and others observe and perceive life. Once you become aware of your perspective you gain tremendous possibilities for modifying recurrent patterns of behavior that limit satisfaction and results.

Nowhere else can you get deep philosophical grounding plus powerful models and distinctions in the field of coaching. FAQs

Newfield Founder Julio Olalla defines what coaching really is in this short video: 

What you will gain:

Ontological Coaching is a commitment to excellence. A holistic and effective way to assist people in discovering new possibilities for work and life, ultimately jumping into their full potential. It's exciting and rewarding, and it carries a significant responsibility. Coaching people to move towards living a good life, a life of satisfaction, gratitude and service. So it's important to use the best coaching methods available.

Newfield Network's ontological coach training program is considered the Harvard of coach training programs, and Newfield is routinely ranked in the top three coach training organizations worldwide.

Newfield Network's methodology

Ontological Coaching is a method co-developed by Julio Olalla, the founder of Newfield Network.

Newfield's approach is truly "ontological" with deep and balanced learning in the domains of language, moods/emotions, and body. With the support of our global community, your learning begins in conferences, continues through credentialing, and lasts a lifetime.

Over 10,000 students worldwide have experienced the power and beauty of Newfield Network's methodology. All facets of your life and relationships are examined. Once you see a challenge in life in a new way, as a "new observer," you find new methods of approaching the challenge. To experience this "whole-body" coaching method is more than inspirational.


What Makes Us Different?

One of the key differentiators of Newfield's Certified Coach Training program is that it is grounded in a rigorous and substantive theoretical framework—ontology, the study of "being." 

A person's way of being refers to how that person perceives the world. It determines the actions she would consider taking, which ultimately determine the results she creates. The results we create, therefore, provide feedback on our way of being and how we observe the world. So for example, if a person were working in a safe but boring job—it would indicate that she perceived the world as a risky place and placed a premium on security. She would only be able to become a successful entrepreneur if she fundamentally shifted the way she saw the world—as a place primarily full of opportunities rather than threats. She would have to shift her way of being.

A person's way of being can be understood more clearly by breaking it up into three areas— the way she uses language, the mood she generates, and the way she uses her body.

What Our Clients Say

The Government Space Agency undertook a year-long effort to look at coaching as a way of enabling performance. The Coaching Team evaluated all programs identified by ICF. Newfield's program was chosen as the best approach to reach one of our goals which was to build our in-house capabilities to better serve our leaders, managers, and employees.
—C. Williams, Government Space Agency

If you are truly committed to bringing about transformational change in yourself and others and being part of a very powerful and supportive learning community, Newfield's ontological coaching program is exactly what you are looking for. This well-thought-out and brilliantly implemented program is the crème de la crème of coach training.
—Athena Miller, president, Human Dimensions, Inc.

This was one of the most valuable life experiences that I have had. I have used the techniques and learning with my family, friends, community and work. I have been promoted into a position at work where I manage the Executive Coaching Program for Marshall Space Flight Center. All the years that I spent in college and taking hundreds of hours of training did not come close to benefiting me and others the way that the Newfield program has.
—Janie Moyers, Government Space Agency
