Recap: Both optimism and increased anxiety are trending this week. In the trenches, our training and coaching provides our client’s leadership team with a critical feedback loop to the front lines, and Greek Philosopher, Zeno of Citium, provides this week’s timeless principle.


Welcome back to another edition of #ThreeThingsThursday. I’m Tom Vander Well with Intelligentics, where intelligence meets tactics.


What’s trending is, of course, a new President in the White House and so far the markets appear to be bullish on the change. In many sectors, there is optimism that a less volatile political environment will be good for business. But that still doesn’t change the on-going effects of the global pandemic and the year that was. Statista recently ran an infographic highlighting a dramatic spike in individuals reporting depression and anxiety. This has executives worried about the mental health of workers, many of whom are still isolated and working from home.


Here in the #Trenches at Intelligentics our Assessment and Training team continues to provide regular coaching and mentoring for front-line workers. Part of that process is to ask good questions, listen intently, and be observant. Our coaching and mentoring allow us to have our finger on the pulse of front-line team members’ thoughts, feelings, and attitudes. This, in turn, allows Intelligentics to be an important feedback loop for our client’s leadership team, providing them with candid observations regarding what is being felt and experienced on the front-line.


Greek Philosopher Zeno of Citium said, “We have two ears and one mouth, so we should listen more than we say.” If you’re looking for a partner who can provide your team with coaching and mentoring that will also provide you with an objective, front-line feedback loop. Give us a call. It’s one of the important services we provide here at Intelligentics, where Intelligence meets tactics.
