WHO ARE THE EXPERTS WHO LEAD THE NEWFIELD NETWORK COURSES? WHAT AND WHO ARE THE “MENTOR COACHES”?
The virtual conferences are facilitated by Julio Olalla, MCC (founder and president of Newfield Network), Veronica Olalla Love, M.Ac., PCC (global CEO and international facilitator), and Alexander M. Love, M.Ac., PCC (senior international facilitator). The programs are run by the Director of Programs, Deanne Prymek, PCC. Our experienced Newfield mentor coaches lead virtual classes throughout the course and offer personalized coaching and mentoring.
What is ontology and why is it so important to the Newfield approach?
Newfield’s approach is grounded in the study of ontology, the branch of philosophy which addresses our “beingness.” We are continuously becoming and developing. Through the ontological approach, we become astute and compassionate observers of ourselves and others. This has a powerful effect: it puts us at choice. Instead of re-actively going down the same paths which don’t work, we open up to new horizons in our leadership, coaching, and personal life.
When are courses offered and how much of an investment (in time and money) is involved?
It varies depending on the course.
Due to the intensive nature of Newfield Network courses, the core programs start new classes two times each year. Courses can be as short as six days or as long as nine months, depending on the course you’re interested in. Enrollment requirements and tuition costs also vary. Overview information on courses for coaches, organizations, and individuals is available, and for specifics, please contact Linda Fischer or phone 1.303.449.6117.
