Leadership 'N Motion

Where walking, mindfulness and leadership intersect

The Co-Leaders:

Kate Link and Marijne van den Kieboom met during a year-long international leadership program in Spain. Together they co-created and launched "The WALKshop" which they conducted in The Netherlands. The response was so positive and participants wanted more -- more walking, more self-reflection, more time together. The aWALKening to Personal Leadership retreat is the result. Kate and Marijne facilitate the retreats using collaborative leadership -- giving each participant an experience of them both leaning in 100% together. Certified by the International Coach Federation, each has extensive education through the Coaches Training Institute.


Kate - in the USA - and Marijne - in The Netherlands - are recognized trainers and group facilitators. You can often find them walking - whether it's their own countries or in the Alps or along one of the El Camino pilgrimage trails.

  • Participants must be able to walk a minimum of 4 miles a day (with longer options available) - some hiking uphill included.
  • Pre-Retreat information will help you get a "walking start" and prepare you for a transformative experience.
