Simon specializes in development of interpersonal people skills and team work. Working with owners, captains and crew, he guides teams and leaders to deeper understanding of self, and others. By growing within, efficiency and effectiveness can be increased, along with leadership, team and personal development.

With many years of working and crewing aboard yachts from 27’ to 270’, and several decades in management of teams ashore, he has built a framework around crew resource management and personality instruments and theories such as the the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®. Simon is available to work with individuals and teams on understanding and developing skills in the following:

    • Communication
    • Team Culture
    • Leadership
    • Change
    • Problem solving
    • Stress

Simon is the founder and program director at N2 people skills and available through N2 site, FB, or here. N2 teaches captains and crew how to leverage their strengths and develop weak areas within the context of individual, team and yacht-wide goals, through training, coaching and crew development plans.
