One challenge drilling contractors face is making cohesive, productive crews from a mix of green talent and experienced drill hands. In Ask Brock, episode 95, host and drill trainer Brock Yordy talks about how to get new and veteran drillers to develop together.

“We develop together by collaborating, having group discussions, after-action reviews, considering every situation,” he says.

New drillers and veterans alike benefit from frank discussions of trial and error, and through sharing both failures and successes.

He also talks about the tribalism of drilling and the benefits of having an open mind about spreading drilling knowledge. Check out today’s episode to hear more.
