Speaking, Facilitating, Coaching & Mentoring
 For when you need a Boost or a Holder of Space to keep moving forward!



Inside every senior leader is a treasure of inner strength and confidence – ImpactBank is in the business of helping leaders leverage their strengths as…

…they enter a new mandate or role to see quick and lasting results and the opportunity is most powerful in the first six months OR within the first two years.
ON YOUR MARK…™ was developed with appreciation for the schedule & time challenges of most senior leaders, an understanding of the importance of JIT (just in time) areas of focus rather than a formula-focused approach to learning, and the value of trying-on different approaches and the art of experimenting as a leader. The goal is for the leader to lock into their purpose, presence & power in a constructive, thoughtful manner.
In September 2016 ON YOUR MARK…™ added another dimension – social learning. IMPACTBANK offers this unique approach to intact teams or to organizations preparing a group of emerging leaders – in addition to the reflective, JIT learning that is unique to the original version of ON YOUR MARK…™, a social component is included either through a classroom experience of on-line.
Contact me for more information about this unique approach to developing and supporting leaders.

We are the product of the company we keep. Once leaders have completed ON YOUR MARK…™ they may benefit from periodic conversations for…  

…the next 12-18 months as new habits are developed, resolve is tested and transfer of learning is challenged. In our experience, leaders are often surprised by how isolated and outwardly focused they feel. With 2 – 1 hour focused conversations each month participants are encouraged to express/unpack the day to day challenges they encounter. By doing so they are explore solutions and learning together resulting in the insights and new thinking that allows them to continue to develop and nurture their strengths.
Conversations, designed specifically for leaders in their first 2 years in a Director or C-Suite position, where they will focus on developing leadership competence where it counts most–the pressing-matters-of-the-day, as identified by the leaders themselves.
With the support of the ImpactBank tailored experiences and the “wisdom-in-the-room”, participants will tackle the specific challenges they’re facing and develop useful solutions to apply immediately.
Every meaningful change starts from the inside—so we’ll clear the toxic inner talk and build capacity and self-efficacy one conversation at a time.  Contact us directly  TODAY to discuss how to make this available to your leaders.

Social Learning
Building and improving on communication and leadership skills is one way to develop confidence and credibility. While focused, tailored learning…

…for each leader is more effective, social learning for an entire leadership team or group of new leaders, where there are a variety of strengths, perspectives and levels of experience may help an organization make shifts in culture and performance. While IMPACTBANK’s specialty is in tailoring learning for senior leaders in a new role or with a new mandate, we recognize the value of in-team social learning in specific situations.
While ImpactBank’s group coaching offers a leader-centric focus, tailored to and flowing with the participants, our workshops on leadership are appropriate for a lot of organizations and leaders. We also offer tailored workshops on the key leadership skills when this approach is most appropriate for an organization or leadership team.
ImpactBank offers progressive workshops on subjects including: “Managing Diversity”, “Styles and Personalities in the Workplace”, “A Brain-based Model for Influence”, “The 12 Leadership Character Strengths”, “Powerful Conversations that Move a Team to Performance”, “Leading Kick-ass Meetings to Get Results” and more.
ImpactBank will also design a unique workshop on leadership skills or competencies you have identified as a gap in your organization. Contact us directly TODAY or JOIN our mailing list to receive information on new topics, research or other resources from ImpactBank.

Passion Initiatives
Eradicating violence against women and girls is a passion initiative perfectly suited to the work of ImpactBank. The moment that started it all was reading MP Michelle Rempel’s op-ed in the National Post in April of 2016 and then feeling compelled…

… to write my own similar post on LinkedIn entitled “Why Do Some Men Still Think it’s Okay for Boys to BE Boys?” In conversations that followed it because clear there may be a path to approach the work from a very different place – namely engaging men.
ImpactBank: #evawCAN was created. It is intended to be a grassroots movement rather than an orchestrated project so it still remains unnamed formally. I envision the conversations that start in January 2017 will spread across the country and eventually include women whereby men will identify create ways to engage and intervene at key points along the spectrum.
The root of the crises IS NOT at the moment of the misogynistic remark, the cat-call, the slap, the sexual harassment at work, the rape or the murder of a woman by someone who “loves” her. IT IS the root that requires our focus, our attention. 

About Me


Pinch-able cheeks, a wry wink and a hearty laugh are classic Roxanne “Rox” Bartel. For 25 years these qualities allowed her to playfully “stir things up” in every role from Trainer to CEO.

Today Rox is “stirring it up” in her own practice, she calls ImpactBank where she is Chief Booster & Holder of Space. She is a speaker (key note and conference break outs), a facilitator of learning and exploratory conversations, and a coach and mentor to leaders who are newly hired, promoted or accepting a big change initiative. Additionally, Rox seems to always have a passion initiative bubbling up.  She is jazzed by opportunities to support leaders in non-profit agencies, academic institutions and for-profit business and envisions bringing them all together one day to learn from each other.

Ask her about:  her podcast “ImpactBank: the Kickass Koach”; her signature systems called “ON THE MARK…™” and IT TAKES GRIT; the consortium of researchers, strategists and consultants in which she is collaborating to serve organizations of all sizes to realize the benefits of social embeddedness; AND her passion initiative to eradicate violence against women and girls in Canada by building a grassroots movement and inviting men to engage in micro experiments to engage in key intervention spots along the spectrum – listen to episodes 072 & 078 of the podcast to understand more and check out the twitter feed @evawCAN to engage.

Grace, wisdom beyond her years, and the personality to wear her signature red shoes – she’s got it all! Oh, and she’s a life-long Habs fan; ok, so clearly she’s not perfect!
