Coaching, Facilitating,  Speaking & Performance Consulting
 For when a Boost or a Holder of Space is all the difference you need to take that next step forward!



Leadership & Career Coaching
Inside every leader or aspiring leader is a treasure of inner strength and confidence – ImpactBank is in the business of helping leaders leverage their character strengths as…

…you enter a new mandate or role so you are able to adeptly achieve lasting results. Recent research indicates that your opportunity to establish a healthy foundation and excel in role is most critical in your first six months in a position.
Following ICF coaching principles, my practice is also informed by techniques taught by the NLI (NeuroLeadership Institute) and the work of Jack Mezirow (Transformational Learning). Through my practice, ImpactBank, I provide standard ICA -driven coaching and programs including: ON YOUR MARK…™ , ImpactBUMP™ and Resilience: it takes GRIT™.
Contact me for more information about these unique approaches to enhance your career experience.

Facilitating and Group Coaching
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 managers and aspiring 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: “Resilience it takes GRIT” (for which we have a career coaching component), “Managing Diversity through Inclusion”, “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”, “Belonging: the most Powerful Motivator” 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. 

Speaking: Keynote & Breakouts
Whether you need a keynote speaker or an engaging facilitator for a break out session, Rox rocks! Whether you want an inspiring story or kickass opening to a conference or you need…

… a breakout session where participants roll up their sleeves and learn useful skills that they will put to use immediately in their life and workplace, Rox is the woman for you. Her signature story (20-40 minutes) and break-out (50 – 180 minutes) is on “Building Resilience: Learning, Practicing and Adapting” and she shares a very relate-able and relevant story on #MeToo. Contact us directly TODAY or JOIN our mailing list to receive information on new topics, research or other resources from ImpactBank.

Performance Consulting
Happy, Healthy Cultures is the order of the day! While Rox has a lot of experience in performance consulting she is passionate about helping organizations generate and sustain cultures that support…

…the people and communities they serve. Have you heard about the #RRTs  (Rotman Round Tables)? Rox started these with a couple of Rotman colleagues as a way to engage men in gender related conversations using a Bohm-inspired approach. If you haven’t read Bohm’s “On Dialogue”, it’s worth picking up. He was a well known physicist who spent a great deal of time thinking about how humans solve the most important problems of our world; he concluded we needed more open dialogue. The focus of the #RRTs initially was eradicating violence against women and girls and evolved in July-August of 2017, BEFORE the #MeToo movement took us by storm, to focus on how we could eliminate sexual harassment. This focus deeply aligns with the work of ImpactBank and easily finds its way into the content of the Kickass Koach podcast. While Rox suspended the bi-weekly public conversations at Rotman, she continues to bring the Bohm-inspired concept to workplaces. In her 2015 post:  “Why Do Some Men Still Think it’s Okay for Boys to BE Boys?” she expresses dismay at the wide ranging challenges we  face in our goal of creating workplaces that are safe for everyone to contribute fully.
ImpactBank: #evawCAN was created in fall 2016 and continues in a new form. By bringing the round table concept to the workplace we meet people where there are opportunities to not only work on skills to improve relationships and organizational cultures but to measure and demonstrate that change is great for people, organizational results AND society broadly.
 YES – we want to eradicate sexual harassment, don’t you? AND our approach will also pay dividends you may not even know are available to you and your balance sheet.
If your organization wants to tackle this common problem in a new way AND/OR engage in a conversation on the cultures that will limit its existence in your workplace, contact Rox for a conversation about our “CULTURE FOR BREAKFAST” 4-month program during which we engage your workforce in meaningful dialogue, co-create a dashboard to measure cultural change linked to your value chain AND develop a “what’s one thing we can commit to doing” culture. You’ll be delighted by the impact this can have on both your bottom line and your ability to recruit the best talent.

About Me


Pinch-able cheeks, a wry wink and a hearty laugh are classic Roxanne “Rox” Bartel. For 30 years these qualities have 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. Looking for a speaker? She’s an engaging speaker (key note and conference break outs). Looking to improve or work on leader skills or improve your organizational culture? She facilitates experiential learning and exploratory conversations that bring immediate results. Are you a leader seeking to raise your game and prove your worth OR are you on-boarding leaders in your organization and want to give them a headstart? Rox is a leadership 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’s been addressing the #MeToo challenges in workplaces her entire career and in January 2017 she started the #RRTs (Rotman Roundtables to discuss sexual harassment with men).

Ask her about:  her podcast “ImpactBank: the Kickass Koach”; her signature systems called “ON THE MARK…™” and IT TAKES GRIT. 

Interested in improving your organizational culture? Rox and collaborators have created a unique experience to get you started in the right direction: Culture for Breakfast.  What differentiates our approach: We’re: informed by theory and research, data-driven, and quick to experiential.

Grace, wisdom beyond her years, and the personality to wear her signature red shoes – Rox has got it all! Oh, she is a life-long Habs fan; SO, clearly she’s far from perfect!
