Course description

In this course, you will learn to become aware of your body, emotions, and language so you can choose and control how they impact the way you converse with others and interact with the world around you.

This course explores the intention (or purpose) of conversation. The way we can become effective communicators is to learn what it is we're actually saying. When we know what we're saying, then we understand how we see the world.

To put it another way: we can choose to engage in full, rich, satisfying conversations with others through understanding language use and how our word selection reflects our perception of and expectation from human interactions.

We learn how to improve communication skills through the six speech acts:

  • Requests
  • Offers
  • Promises
  • Assertions
  • Assessments
  • Declarations

Through practice, we become skilled at conversation with our networks, bosses, colleagues, teams, friends, and loved ones.

By the end of this course, you'll understand how the actions you take in your life – based on the Ontological Methods you learn in the course videos and materials – can lead to new perspectives, great conversations, and increased opportunities for positive human connection.

What Is Ontological Coaching?

Ontology, as taught by the Newfield Network, is the knowledge of how you are "being" in the world through your body/movement, thoughts/emotions, and language. Your body, thoughts and language are all interrelated. When you change one of these three components, you cause the other two to change or shift – for better or worse.

Ontology affects your conversations and their outcomes at work, home, and play. Conversation is more than talk; it's about how we move our bodies, feel and interpret emotions, and choose our words.

Are You Driven By Curiosity?

❖ What new skills do you want to learn?
❖ How do you express your creativity?
❖ How do you become an observer of yourself?
❖ What do you need to do to improve yourself?
❖ What changes do you need to adopt to enliven your spirit?

These are just a few of the questions that I explore with students and learners just like you.


I strongly believe in 3 key ideas: #1) Education - learn about what matters to you; #2) Coaching - practice and embody that learning; and #3) Leadership - show up "fully and in presence" with others.

Ontological Coaching is based deeply in embracing a person's individuality. In reaching your goals and desires you have a unique and different approach to life.

Instead of obsessively focusing on developing traits, ontological coaching shows you how to use your existing strengths to achieve your goals.
