Our Story

The Coach Partnership offers the Newfield suite of programs. These programs were originally constituted in 1990 by Julio Olalla and Rafael Echeverria, former students and colleagues of Fernando Flores. Emphasis was placed on combining transformational learning and coach training. In 1996, Julio Olalla created a separate entity called the Newfield Network, Inc. to continue the training in both North and South America and Europe. The program was offered in Singapore for the first time in 2010, in partnership with The Works Partnership, via a joint entity called Newfield Asia.

In 2019, and now with more than 400 graduates, Newfield Asia became The Coach Partnership, while still continuing to offer the same Newfield suite of programs. There are now thousands of Newfield graduates all over the world united by the fact that all human beings can live meaningful, connected and successful lives. The Works Partnership (TWP) is our partner in designing and delivering initiatives for corporations such as leadership development programs and team interventions.

Ontological Coaching Testimonials

The experience has been “defining” for me in more ways than one. I would not trade this for anything on planet earth. The beauty of it all is that we are just beginning to explore, beginning to observe differently, beginning to accept and beginning to make a difference with a new way of being.

GovTech Singapore

One of the best coaching certification programs

While my motivation was purely work related, the outcome became a total transformation in how I show up at work but also in my private life. I can warmly recommend the course to anyone who looks to do small adjustments in their life for a massive output.

An ontological coach is a skillful facilitator of learning that generates genuine transformation and more powerful and constructive ways of engaging with different aspects of life and work. With this coaching skill, I have improved on my interaction with peers, staff and senior management, and even facilitate the development of new leaders.

Christine Wu

Senior Manager

National University Hospital System, Singapore

I found that the conversations I have with our leaders and the team have become very different, simply because the way I perceive situations is different. Post ontological coaching, I started to look at problems from other perspectives and new actions presented themselves. The outcomes of coaching in business is exponential.

Tricia Duran

Head of HR

Unilever Asia Pte Ltd

It gave me more awareness about who I am as an individual. I saw the difference between mechanical coaching from just using language to coach somebody, but seeing how our language is connected with the emotions and with the body was very unique for me.

Rozan Anwar (Idan)


PT DayaLIma Abisatya

I expected to just learn how to coach but ended up with so much more... being set free from a crippling mindset to discovering a new passion in coaching and partnering others on their individual journeys to become the best version of themselves at their workplaces, homes and social settings.
