Podcast - Mindfulness Manufacturing
Trevor Blondeel ran manufacturing facilities and was not always a very ‘Mindful’ leader. He didn’t have a resource like this when he was caught in the whirlwind of manufacturing.
Experience taught him that you can be assertive and drive accountability in manufacturing, and also be kind. Inspired by the desire to make manufacturing a better place to work, and improve the lives of their colleagues, this podcast was born.
His intriguing offsets and authentic guests provide new ways of thinking for his audience. Have a listen to this relaxed, candid format you can consume on your drive to work, or whenever you are just looking for a different perspective!
Our show is about providing listeners with real stories that come from a place of experience, transparency, and authenticity. Most importantly it’s about what we learn from these stories and applying Mindfulness in our everyday work and personal lives.
Our intention is to create an environment where people can learn through open honest discussions on how we apply Mindfulness. Although our experiences and stories come from time in a manufacturing environment hence the title “Mindfulness Manufacturing”, we still see our discussions and topics relatable to any organization or profession.
