Leadership is important because it is the leaders of an organisation who determine its culture. This safety training DVD workshop is suitable for management at all levels – senior executives, middle-ranking managers and front-line managers that take responsibility for the culture of an organisation. It also illustrates how the participation, competency, training, behaviour and attitudes of individual workers contribute to developing the safety culture of an organisation.

Mindful Leadership Communication Skills – a DVD program focusing on the essential communication techniques of Mindful Leaders.

Andrew Hopkins is obviously knowledgeable and speaks with conviction. His approach cuts through the rhetoric and academic jargon and strikes a chord with both managers and employees. He makes you think and enlightens the listener to the point where one hears oneself saying “Ah, now I see”. Some of our managers can be heard talking about the “warning signs” that Professor Hopkins so eloquently discusses, so his message is definitely being absorbed and emulated.
