Julio Olalla (born October 27, 1945 in Santiago de Chile) is a former Chilean government lawyer and now the President of The Newfield Network, a leading consulting company and coaching school in the USA and Latin America.
Olalla worked for the government of Chilean President Salvador Allende and then spent four years in exile in Argentina before emigrating to the USA in 1978 with his family. There he began working with Fernando Flores and developed his theoretical and practical work on transcending the epistemological crisis of modernity and became one of the founders of ontological coaching, influenced by Heidegger, Maturana, J.L. Austin, Willis Harman and others. He created his company Newfield Network in 1991 to address the challenges of finding new ways to address the concerns of our world, which traditional ways can no longer address.
Olalla has worked with thousands of people across the world, in the field of personal transformation and Emergence. More recently, he has also been working with newly-elected Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and her government.
He is the author of From Knowledge to Wisdom and several CDs on topics from ontological coaching to including moods and emotions as fields of learning.
