Author Biography

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.

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.

Being a leader in this rapidly fast-moving world is not easy. No matter your area of expertise or background, being in a leadership position puts you at a high risk of burnout. Through Unfolding Peace, award-winning transformational consultant and coach Kawtar El Alaoui offers valuable insights for readers to help them negate the disempowering beliefs that hold them back from fulfilling their potential and reclaiming their inner power to create change in the world. El Alaoui believes that peace can only be attained if we work toward it and make inner peace a priority. She reiterates that emotional intelligence should not be viewed as a weakness -- instead, building awareness about one's own limiting beliefs only strengthens one's ability to find peace and acceptance. El Alaoui also provides tools for readers to resolve workplace, family, and inner conflicts.

If you feel the weight of your work creating mental, physical, and emotional baggage in your life, Unfolding Peace is a must-read. Author Kawtar El Alaoui demonstrates the ways disempowering beliefs can bring you down and shows how people can navigate and rise above those beliefs in their pursuit of happiness and peace. She recounts her own experiences with her clients and anecdotes from her own life to provide real-life examples of the application of the methods discussed within the book. The most impressive aspect of the narrative is that everything about El Alaoui's leadership framework is not only practically applicable but also very accessible. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
