Leadership Development Programs

Achieve superior results, generate self and organizational awareness, accelerate your leadership growth

  • Become astute observers of organizational dynamics and relationships, able to see and design more effective organizational solutions.
  • Manage diversity, conflict and change at the workplace.
  • Build an amazing ability to lead others by deeply understanding their motivations and unlocking their potential

Best approach to reach our goals

NASA undertook a year-long effort to look at coaching as a way of enabling performance. The Coaching Team evaluated all programs identified by ICF. Newfield’s program was chosen by the majority of team members as the best approach to reach one of our goals, which were to build our in-house capabilities to better serve our leaders, managers, and employees. – C. Williams, NASA

Newfield has catapulted my company

The Newfield Network has catapulted my company and me forward beyond what I could ever have imagined. It has profoundly changed the way we relate to our customers and to each other inside the organization. Trust has increased and opportunities have opened up in unexpected ways. – Bob Zimmer, CEO International Resort Group, Santa Fe, NM

Enhanced my communication skills

As a Federal Government employee working with Alternative Dispute Resolution, my expectations from the Newfield program were basically to give me skills to work with conflict. I never dreamed that my Newfield experience would also so personally enrich me. Now, I show up differently in all domains of my life which enhance the communication skills that I now use in conflict resolution with (ADR). – Anita Fisher
