The Newfield Network is a vibrant, global community dedicated to pushing the boundaries of human knowing and learning. As a graduate, here are some of the many ways available to you to foster new conversations, stay connected and continue your learning.
Alumni Committee: This group is dedicated to keeping the dialogue between our alumni and the Newfield team going. They provide a listening to what our alumni community is longing for, dreaming of, and envisioning. The committee is also enthusiastic about co-creating events with you. email@example.com
Are You Yearning for Connection?
Once we have gone through the Newfield Program, we are profoundly aware of the importance of community, connection, and learning in our lives. With this deep experience, many of us crave to actively and continuously be part of a community. We know the power of co-inspiring each other to evolve through presence and rich conversation. These Learning in Action (LIA) conversations are one way to nourish our collective unfolding.
These monthly alumni dialogues are the perfect place where we can show up fully and engage in a sacred environment where we reflect collectively and co-generate a beautiful shared future. In these conversations, we draw upon our collective community wisdom and pave the road for co-designing a thriving alumni community.

Heart, Soul, & Praxis Of Business Development: You have decided to change the world through coaching. But how do you build a thriving coaching practice? The skills to be a powerfully transformative coach and the skills to build a successful coaching practice are two different skills.

Jennifer Einolf: On a long and circuitous path to coaching, Jennifer has found herself in a lot of places of possibility. She earned a degree in English at William and Mary and a degree in Interior Design at Virginia Commonwealth University. This means she can make art, and then describe it. She has worked designing hospitals, facilitating the daily operations of a synagogue, teaching art to the self-confessed uncreative, and training churches on the use of social media. She has nurtured a delight-filled marriage, parented a quirky son through 15 eventful years (so far) and maintained an active social life with a network of oddballs, instigators, and divergent thinkers. In all those journeys and in all those places, she has come to understand that her role has often been that of a coach—the person who is present, who asks the curiosity-fueled, disruptive question that gives birth to hope and agitation and action and change. So, she pointed herself toward a new possibility and attended Newfield Network for training in ontological coaching. Now, in her business, Bold Whisper LLC, she is blissfully facilitating her clients path to real, meaningful, personal success. “What," she wonders, "is possible if we are all living our boldest life?”
Elisa Canova: For the majority of her career, prior to being an executive and leadership coach, Elisa worked in management consulting with a brief stint as a venture capitalist. She has had the privilege of advising clients all over the world, from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, on how to maximize business performance. But, something was missing. While she loved her work and clients, there was something that just wasn’t there. She realized that she wanted to put human beings at the center of her work, not strategy, solutions, and processes. Now she spends her days doing what she loves most – being of service to others and facilitating transformation. Elisa was born and raised in the New York City metro area and has a degree in psychology from Oberlin College and a MBA from the Darden School at the University of Virginia. Learning from Julio Olalla at the Newfield Network coach training program changed her life in so many ways. She is a lifelong learner and has done more programs that she can list, but another stand out experience was the Newfield Body and Movement advanced coaching and leadership program.
Adam Mutschler: Adam is a graduate of the 2016 Newfield Program. Previously he worked at Apple and a Startup in Chicago honing his training and mentoring skills. Since beginning his journey with Newfield, Adam joined The Kedar Group, a leadership transformation organization, where he is building his coaching and facilitation practice primarily with aspiring leaders in both the private and public sectors. In addition, he works with Integral Leadership & Coaching utilizing his business background to work with client and business development. Both organizations are founded and lead by Newfield Alumni. He’s very excited to be immersed in the coaching world and to serve Newfield’s growing network of graduates.
Catherine Heggerud: An energetic life-long learner. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree (specializing in Marketing and Finance), a Master of Business Administration (Strategic Management & Organizational Development), both from the University of Alberta, and is a Newfield graduate. Catherine is excited to be joining the University of Southern California, doctor of education program in organizational change and leadership in 2018.
As a participant in the Women’s Executive Network Wisdom Top 100 Mentoring Program, Catherine was mentored by influential leader Margaret-Ann Armour, University of Alberta Faculty of Science’s associate dean of diversity.
Catherine has over 20 years of experience in technology organizations, specializing in organizational transformations, strategic planning, stakeholder engagement, and organizational change management.
As a professional, Catherine has consistently demonstrated that she is an outstanding relationship builder and facilitator across the banking, telecommunications, energy, and volunteer sectors. She is an inclusive leader who has repeatedly led teams to successful development and execution of shared visions and plans, consistently scoring in the top quartile of employee engagement scores.
Deeply involved in her community, Catherine feels very strongly about sharing her talents in the interests of helping create a better world.
