Take it from two USCG licensed captains with many years as professional mariners, and solo sailors who joined forces on one boat – it can be hard to be egalitarian! It’s especially difficult in the maritime world where the term “blue and pink jobs” still has meaning. But, dividing the work along gender lines doesn’t always bring out the greatest potential in an individual, or the best synergy in a partnership. This seminar discusses blending the masculine and feminine roles on a boat so that both partners feel empowered to take the helm, managing the vessel, and find fulfillment in ways they never thought about.

Topics include; confidence – too much, and too little, choosing a captain and the captain’s role, increasing trust in your partner, supporting your partner’s growth, and how to pass control to your partner.
