How do you train newbies at your drilling company if you’ve lost a lot of mentor talent? Host and The Driller contributing writer Brock Yordy this week discusses strategies for scaling up mentorship for training: reconsider who can be a mentor and then get creative. It’s Ask Brock, episode 136.

“There is no age to being a mentor,” Yordy says. “We don’t have to be at the end of our career with a bad back, and now it’s time to start teaching. We can start teaching today.”

This episode also talks about making content that can be shared — or put in one big company knowledge base — like videos and podcasts, and other topics. Click the video to hear more.
