Newfield Advantage

“Ontological exercise is a shift from doing or getting it done to mastering.” – Sanjay Thakkar

Over three decades, the Newfield Network has educated over 70,000 masterful coaches, leaders, and individuals to be powerful agents of change.

Our Story

Newfield Network was founded to provide transformational training to coaches, leaders, and organizations—empowering them to authentically lead and design a new world. 

As leaders, coaches, and organizations, what we must do is multi-fold. We must keep up with the velocity of change and stay relevant, as well as be conscious and collaborative designers for the emergence of our future. 

We believe this requires a new kind of learning. Newfield’s ontological learning connects us to our own wholeness and includes all aspects of who we are.  

For over 30 years, we have been dedicated to creating a global community of new learning that enables people to live and work from their wholeness, humanity, and passion. When you create from this place, opportunities for leadership, coaching, and businesses grow exponentially and you are in service to a greater purpose in life.

Newfield can help you coach and lead from a different place.

Grounded in Ontology

Newfield’s approach is grounded in the study of ontology, the branch of philosophy that addresses the nature of being. We believe that we are continuously becoming and that observing this perpetual unfolding is the beginning of mindful ontological development.

With cultivating your awareness, meaningful and sustained change becomes available in all aspects of how you show up and interact with the world: your cultural and individual narratives, rooted emotions, somatic tendencies, and beliefs about yourself and others.

With an ontological-centered approach, becoming an astute and compassionate observer of yourself and others has a powerful effect. It puts you at choice. Your perspective will be widened to new possibilities in your leadership, coaching, and personal life, rather than defaulting to old patterns and simply reacting.

More than that, an ontological approach helps you hold others with more acceptance, more dignity, and more curiosity. It empowers you to find new ways of relating and connecting with others. This is a core reason why our graduates see breakthroughs in their coaching, leading, and personal relationships.

Integrated Learning: Language, Body & Emotion


Newfield advantage study of ontology: Newfield’s ontological approach to learning honors the full humanity of each person: language, body (somatics), and emotion. We explore all these territories as windows into who you are, and avenues you can shift to achieve your goals. In our programs, you will witness how effective change comes when you integrate shifts across all these domains.

With linguistic, somatic, and emotional distinctions in your toolbox, you have incredible range and flexibility to bring out the best in yourself and those you work with.

Our graduates often report how the Newfield learning is deeply embodied, impactful, and endures throughout the years. We believe it’s because they experience ontology; learning that deliberately and consistently integrates mind, body, and emotion – often for the first time in their lives.

Transformation That Lasts a Lifetime

At Newfield, you will learn impactful new skills and see vast new possibilities for action in ontology, boosting your professional and personal effectiveness in exponential ways with the Newfield advantage study of ontology. 

But you will come away with much more than that: a window into the place from which you lead and coach, and a deeper sense of your purpose in the arc of humanity as you lead and coach.

Many people worry about what happens after a transformational program. That’s why at Newfield, we put incredible care into sustaining and cultivating a learning community for life. From our cohort-based curriculum design to monthly alumni Learning in Action calls and alumni-only continuing education courses, these are just examples of ways that Newfield Alumni continue to deepen and learn.

It is impossible to go through Newfield’s programs without being personally transformed, for life.
