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!
To get your team on board, join us on this episode as we learn from Greg Morgan, and why mindfulness is actually a key skill set!
