The experience has been ” defining” for me in more ways than one, and, I would not trade this for anything on planet earth. And, the beauty of it all – we are just beginning to explore, beginning to observe differently, beginning to accept.. and, beginning to make a difference with a new way of being. Thank you, Newfield ( and, Newfield Asia ). Here’s more power to all of us ! –
A note of gratitude to the program, people and the pedagogy.

The Newfield Asia Coach Training Program, with its structured programs, peer group learning and individual hands-on practice, gave me good insights into the field of coaching. I have also benefited much from the highly professional and dedicated Newfield coaches who were assigned to coach and mentor me through the 9-month learning journey. More importantly, this program has equipped me with essential coaching skills and expanded my repertoire of leadership competencies so that I can become a better leader and people manager to the colleagues whom I have the privilege to work with.

I knew about this profession called coaching and wanted to explore but from the Newfield Asia coach training, I got much more than that. It gave me more awareness about who I am as an individual. I saw the difference between mechanical coaching from just using language to coach somebody, but seeing how our language is connected with the emotions and with the body was very unique for me. You provided that, a framework, the foundation for us to be able continue learning and I’m excited to be part of that learning journey together.

I am learning to make greater distinctions, fully aware of the observer that I am, the bias I bring and my context – I have written a lot about these in previous years, especially the importance of bias as a hiring manager – but until now I didn’t have the precision of distinction that Newfield has given me.

The Newfield Asia program has made a profound contribution to me personally, as well as to my professional work as coach and consultant. It expanded my presence as a human being and helped to allow more of myself available to more people and be effective at work. I am also a much better listener today, with a sensibility to not to assume, but to discover, understand and appreciate people in where they are at. The impact of the program is on-going. In addition, I’m also appreciative of the great community learning that we built, shared and endured. It added yet another important dimension to the learning experience, that we each are not separated but connected as a community.

I have completed the Newfield foundation courses. When I first joined the Foundation Course I thought that I was going to learn something that I can apply to my work which is mostly arts and education. I was surprised in addition to those coaching skills and teaching skills I learnt a lot about myself, my values, my beliefs and those things that were invisible to me. So I have a lot of new breaks in transparency which actually allows me to make new choices. These choices were not previously available to me and my awareness of all of these transparencies actually allows me to connect better with myself and also with others. So I think this is the best value I got from Foundation and in TAPOC when I start to share my coaching with others and I learned to be a better listener. I learn to allow the space for others to express themselves and then see things from their perspective and also allow me to share my observation with them. So these are all the surprises I encountered in the Newfield program, thank you.
