Meet Our Founder:

Kawtar El Alaoui

Gold Line

As a conscious leadership consultant, coach, facilitator, mentor, and speaker, Kawtar El Alaoui, LL.B, PCC, partners with conscious leaders and organizations to create cultures of well-being, belonging, and peace—replacing the old paradigm.  

When Kawtar realized how deeply the old paradigms had failed her, it was almost too late. Her body failing, career falling apart, and support system fumbling to help, she realized resistance was futile. The only way out was through. To heal her life, Kawtar had to confront and replace nine disempowering beliefs that had held her hostage to a life of external privilege and internal chaos since childhood. What started as a personal journey unfolded into an embodied mission to help others to change the world more effectively.

After years of searching and experimenting with methods of driving change, Kawtar found that the changes we truly wish for in our hearts, and for our world, must be unfolded from within. Having supported leaders from all walks of life, and diverse cultural backgrounds, to find peace with the past and cultivate more empowering dynamics for themselves and their communities, Kawtar uncovered a new paradigm of empowering, uniting, and effective leadership. In the Conscious Togetherness Leadership Framework®, she weaves tools for deep inner healing and meaningful service to guide leaders in creating a more equitable, peaceful, and prosperous world. Crafted to bring humanity back to business and systems, this model offers principles and tangible tools for self-awareness, conscious communication, and collaboration, conflict transformation, social equity, trauma-informed relating, and personal and organizational purpose.

As a consultant, Kawtar bridges whole-brain leadership, soul purpose, and effective strategy. Her legal background and mediation training, combined with her leadership profile, give her access to a systemic view that holds the interests of diverse stakeholders with equal care. Her gift for creating spaces of deep listening to self, and the collective, allows individuals and cultures to turn wounds to wisdom, unleash the courage to create systemic change, and establish new life-enhancing paradigms in the spaces in which we lead.

Kawtar was voted 2020 Global Woman of the Year in the category of education by the Global Institute for Evolving Women, featured by Brainz magazine for International Women’s Day 2022 as 1 of 7 female entrepreneurs changing the world and awarded a CREA Global Award for her contribution as a Leadership Coach and Facilitator, and featured in Women’s News Korea. 

She is the Founder & CEO of Conscious Togetherness, Inc; Faculty and a Mentor with Leadership That Works India; a Facilitator with Business Plan for Peace in the UK; and a Leadership Advisor with She Did It! Elle a osé! in Canada. 

Kawtar enjoys bonding over deep conversations, diverse cultural traditions and foods, and collaborating on innovative and effective solutions to social problems. When she’s not speaking, coaching, or changing the world, she’s home cooking delicious Moroccan food for family and friends or watching her favorite shows on Netflix. 

Within Conscious Togetherness, Kawtar heads the Cultural Transformation program. Reach out to her to explore bringing the Conscious Togetherness Leadership Framework® to your organization or community. 

Join Kawtar on the ride to change the world, one mindful breath and one brave step at a time!

"Kawtar has a unique facilitative skill-set. Always working from a place of absolute professionalism and integrity, she holds space, energy, and emotions so beautifully and powerfully through quiet, reflective, insightful inquiry. Every interaction with Kawtar elicits wisdom and alignment with what is important to that moment. I highly recommend Kawtar as a facilitator and consultant."

Meet Our Personal Transformation Lead:

Nienke van Bezooijen

Meet Our Personal Transformation Lead:

Nienke van Bezooijen

Nienke Headshot Gold Border
Gold Line

Nienke van Bezooijen is our director of personal transformation. Resilience is her life’s theme, and supporting others to bounce back and beyond is her mission. Nienke’s metamorphosis from being an executive in healthcare departments to entrepreneurship developed her capacity for getting to the essence of what matters in people's lives, whether that’s business or personal development. In her perspective, tapping into our true power is the catalyst for where we are depleting or thriving. She’s a lighthouse mentor, shining light on what others can’t see yet. If she can help leaders speak authentically, clearly, effectively, and from the heart to support others, the circle is complete again.  

Looking after her disabled mother from a very young age, nursing seemed a natural profession for Nienke. In her late thirties, her visionary and strategic strengths led to not only a BA, but also to leading teams to increase their performance and personal effectiveness. Spiral Dynamics was the first step in Nienke’s personal development and entrepreneurship in 2008.

As a serial entrepreneur, she discovered and developed a deep expertise in giving voice to what needs to be expressed as she became a mentor, coach, and trainer in the field of public speaking. She has worked globally with hundreds of people to prepare and deliver TEDx talks, and she published her first book about her public speaking method E.A.S.E. in The Speaker Success Solution in 2015. From peacebuilders to startups, CEO’s, politicians, and individuals with the desire to transform the world to a better place, Nienke’s ability to listen deeply has helped many around the globe.

Although Nienke was born only a mile from the international Peace palace, she didn’t dare to become active in the field of peace until she started to work with Dr. Scilla Elworthy and Sheva Carr and became a facilitator at the Business Plan for Peace (Mighty Heart course). She also founded the Building Bridges Movement in 2019 to lead interviews for the international Peace Month in 2020, and created and led online programs for peace projects like “Smile beyond War” in Yemen.

In 2021, Nienke became a HeartMath™ certified advance resilience trainer. Facing her own challenges and recovering from physical setbacks, she started to coach and train HeartMath at the brain and spine rehab Centre, which specializes in brain trauma and redesigning your life after trauma. She is a mentor and leader in HeartAmbassadors™.

Nienke started to collaborate with Kawtar in 2017, first together in the Global institute for Evolving Women, later at Building Bridges and Mighty Heart, and eventually at Conscious Togetherness. They found each other by speaking their truth and coming from wisdom, compassion, and the soul’s desire to contribute to the world. 

The mother of two adult children, Nienke is living a single life since she started from scratch in Spring 2022. She is a devoted friend and is still caretaker on several levels in her family. She loves to be out in nature hiking, or indoors singing and expressing herself by writing, painting, and playing her Celtic Harp. 

"Nienke is an extraordinary leader among leaders, a conscious voice and conduit for women and men who want their voice to give vision for the world. Nienke is a gifted speaker, host, coach, and mentor who is truly able to breathe life into individuals and organizations looking for transformation. It all comes from her heart and has roots in her wisdom."
