    What Our Alumni Are Saying:

    Lee C.

    I’ve been through many schools over the last ten years and I found that Newfield Network is one that has a wonderful experiential activity program that will help people to understand the importance of their being. I couldn’t find any other school that compared to my life experiences, so this is the one for me.

    Lesley K.

    This experience has been completely transformative. I am not the same person today as I was when I arrived. The experience with my peers of the group, the leaders, the staff, have been powerful in certain ways beyond words.

    Vinay K.

    Newfield isn’t just about superficial change, it’s about deep transformation. It’s changing from the inside out, which is the only one that lasts and it sticks. It is something I have not experienced in any other program.

    Don’t be held back by surface-level coaching

    Powerful coaching is far more than following a set of markers or procedures.

    It’s about learning to make potent observations about yourself and others so you can assist your clients in thriving.

    Whether you’re looking for a career change, or want to bring a new approach to your current career, Newfield Network will equip you to become a dynamic, resourceful and creative coach.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Here are our top five questions that we frequently get asked. You can view other questions on our FAQ page.

    There are so many coaching programs out there. Why Newfield Network?

    Our founder, Julio Olalla, is considered among the founding fathers of the coaching movement itself. He has over 40 years of experience in education and coaching and has educated more than 70,000 individuals, over 300 companies (e.g., Nike, Citibank, NASA, World Bank), as well as government leaders.

    Newfield employs several innovative learning best practices such as learning groups, mentor coaching, recommended readings and assignments, virtual learning, and more so that participants get a rich experience throughout the eight months. After your graduation, Newfield’s vibrant and active Learning Collective enables you to share resources and coaching tools as well as to network with over 2,500 of the finest coaches in the world. 

    Begun in 1991, Newfield was one of the first coach training schools in the world. Thanks to its world-class faculty, cutting-edge and research-driven content, innovative learning methodologies, and vibrant alumni community, Newfield has evolved into a coach-education institute regarded by many as the best in the world.

    Who is this program for?

    Newfield’s Coaching for Personal and Professional Mastery program is designed for those committed to deep personal transformational learning, becoming a competent coach, or more impactful & successful organizational leader. Thus, our programs are attended by individuals, entrepreneurs, and leaders in non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private corporations. We welcome those with an appreciation and desire to honor the highest standards of the profession to attend a program accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Upon successful completion of the program, you can leverage your learning and professional standing by joining the ICF and becoming an ICF-credentialed coach.

    Is your program accredited by the International Coaching Federation?

    YES! We teach the ICF Core Coaching Competencies and the Professional Coaching Markers, which include how to build rapport and trust, how to enter into a coaching agreement, how to work with the coachee to develop coaching plans, etc. 

    We begin the Coaching for Personal and Professional Mastery program by teaching frameworks, models, and practices that effectively facilitate the process of change in the participants before they try it with others. Beyond learning coaching as a list of “to do” steps, participants deeply explore what it means to be a human “being.” Ontological coaching provides a deep well of knowledge from which to draw to serve this purpose.

    What are the program prerequisites?

    People self-select into our Coach Education Program. This program is not the right fit for those trying to learn to coach quickly or without first examining their own beliefs, limitations, and assumptions. It is rigorous and experiential, requiring you to attend two 6-day virtual intensives and spend approximately 5-7 hours per week in course activities, including reading, writing, working with study partners, and participating in virtual classes over a 9-month time period.

    Do you have tuition payment plans?

    Yes. There is a deposit due upon registration, followed by four or six payments over the length of the program. For other payment options, please email your enrollment specialist at You may pay by check or credit card.
