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.
The Coach Partnership work is based on the ontological coaching model which is one of the most respected and effective modalities of coaching available today. Ontology is defined as the “study of being.” When someone enlarges the way they “view” themselves and the world around them, they begin to see new possibilities and, as a result new, sustainable results become available to them. This growth occurs in the three fundamental domains of being human: the body (somatics), emotions and language.
Human beings live in a body and the way we move through space and time is another major (and often overlooked) factor in how we “see” or take action in our world. The ability to shift transparent physical habits is often cited by graduates as their key outtake from the program.
Humans are emotional beings and live in moods. These moods and emotions predispose us to take certain actions and to not take others. The ability to identify and shift moods is fundamental to powerful living, leadership and coaching.
Human beings live in language and it is language that generates the reality we experience. The ability to create more effective conversations is a key part of our work.
The Coach Partnership is part of a network of companies across the globe with an extended team of highly trained and experienced trainers and senior executive coaches.
The Newfield Ontological curriculum is incredibly rich and diverse. It requires an in-depth study and understanding of Language, Emotions, Somatics (the body), leadership and Coaching. Our team is comprised of specialists in these areas, as well as highly experienced and sought after executive coaches. Our current faculty of experts and coaches come from America, South America, Asia and Europe and, as such, offer a truly global learning environment.
The Mark J. Hemstedt Scholarship fund provides scholarships or assistance to remarkable people within the community who would otherwise not be in a position to attend our programs. Sales of our coaching intake questionnaire, The Lenses, go toward this endeavour.
