Meet Simon Confino

His New Earth Story

Being the son of war refugees, Simon’s New Earth story begins with the yearning he felt listening to his parents stories of family and community life in their home lands. As well as the loss and dislocation they felt in England. This sparked Simon’s thirst for community life.

A thirst that has led him to live at agrarian kibbutz and co-housing projects, and devote himself to community building. The enormity of the climate crisis, the destruction of the natural world, and the rising tide of psychological stress in modern societies is undeniable. Simon’s core message is therefore, that there’s no other way than to shift from Me to We!

His Work

During the course of his long career in business and consulting, Simon focused on the psychological health and effectiveness of teams and organisational cultures. He coaches leaders and teams in a wide range of businesses and organisations worldwide.

Simon founded We-Q, the collaborative intelligence company which helps teams to rapidly build psychological safety, enabling teams to fulfil their purpose, make quantum leaps in innovation and thrive. In addition, he supports several New Earth and community initiatives.
