Coaching is a key component of the Buscarello Machinery Solutions approach to enhancing a reliability and maintenance program.
Training is crucial for people to do their job and do it well, but often going through a course is not enough. There may be a long time before there is an opportunity to put new skills into practice and much is already forgotten. There can be some uncertainty about how to perform a task or implement an entirely new concept. On the job with pressure to get things done it is easy to fall back on old habits.
Coaching involves follow up by reviewing results and asking questions, being available to answer questions, working along side of those who need some help, and doing some follow up training as needed. The effective transition from old habits to new is successful far more often when coaching is involved.
