IMPACTBANK: The Kickass Koach

Hi! My name is Roxanne Bartel - most people call me "Rox" . I own ImpactBank where I am the Chief Booster and Holder of Space. I help leaders transitioning, whether its a lateral move or a promotion, so they avoid the common mistakes in the first 6 months in role and exceed expectations immediately. The Kickass Koach podcast offers stories--my own and others--to serve you as you navigate the first two years of the journey at the senior levels of leadership. Each week stories will be used to illuminate our shared experience and tips will be offered to get you thinking and support you in expanding your self-awareness and positive influence as a leader. Each week I'll share a corresponding Blog post on the ImpactBank website or on Linked In and offer resources to those on the mailing list. www.impactbank.ca

Behaviour that is born out of hubris, when observed with distance, may be cringe worthy but it strikes you, the transitioning leader, in the same pernicious way as the frog in the story who chooses to enjoy the warming water never springing into action before the water boils.

Two stories in this episode. First first isn't a new one - you can reference it again in the following episodes: 

  1. Episode 035
  2. Episode 036
  3. Episode 037

 Don't miss the 3 factors that contribute to or exacerbate the impact of hubris.

You can also find a third story and more reflections on the subject in the LINKEDIN POST.

To connect with me, here's my LINKEDIN PROFILE  Let's connect.

NEXT TIME:  Lessons from the shadow and an exploration of why and how the leader will do better when looking away from the shadow rather than finding comfort in it.

Have you taken the leap into a leadership role?

You are one of the brave who have decided to step into the arena.

I flipped the script - we talked strategies for networking today but next week will be character strengths to find FLOW in your networking conversations.

Today we explored specific ideas on how to network and interestingly there are suggestions for both those with a masculine and feminine approach - (see last week's episode).

No new post this week but check out the one from last week; I'd love a comment too: LINKEDIN POST.

We don't fit neatly into boxes and yet we need categories and generalizations to communicate. Frankly language itself is about using an agreed upon set of letters to form words we all understand in order to communicate. TODAY I am using these categories in the area of gender from the historical way we categorize as: women and men. I also need to say that as individuals you will have varying degrees of attachment or experience in both. For example, I'm personally a bit more masculine in my approach than I am feminine BUT I do better when I recognize the value of both and allow myself to lean one way or the other based on the circumstances of any interaction.

Today we are looking at: motivational differences, functional differences and emotional differences in the way we network AND build relationships.

Happy International Networking Week!

We are exploring networking to acknowledge our shared human need to connect with others. We need each other for our physiological and psychological health and well-being. We also need each other to accomplish we seek to do in our life, our work and our world.

We are starting from the very core of networking - our fundamental need to belong.

EVERY thing each of us does is in service to our need to feel like we belong.

In this episode we identify 4 key links related to our need to belong.

Since it is networking week - if we aren't already connected on LinkedIn here's where you find me:  LINKEDIN PROFILE  Let's connect.

NEXT TIME:  The functional differences in the masculine approach and the feminine approach to networking. Would you be more successful if you were able to consciously choose your approach?

We more quickly trust the leader who asks questions over the one who thinks they have all the answers.

NO MORE shooting from the hip and asking questions later. Build trust first by asking questions.

This week's post expands on the episode: LINKEDIN POST

Work on:

1. Being truly curious - ask more questions and listen

2. Use Stories when offering guidance - you have to be vulnerable though

NEXT TIME:  Honouring International Networking Day/Week by talking about the power of BELONGING.

So I spent the week reflecting on the three questions (see below) I suggested last week - and it was an interesting week.

In the episode I share my insights through three experiences in my week that framed my reflections.

Connect with me on Linked In -  LINKEDIN PROFILE  

Here's last week's post to which I added more detail after recording this episode: LINKEDIN POST

The three questions about meaning:

  1. How does the meaning I attach to a conversation or how someone speaks to me impact my ability to build a successful relationship with that person?
  2. How does the meaning associated with the the work I do and the outcomes generated in my work impact my ability (efficacy) to accomplish my goals?
  3. How does the meaning I attach to my life or my time impact the joy I have in performing every task?

NEXT TIME:  How embracing your own vulnerability strengths both your Leader's Mindset AND your appreciation for & recognition of meaning.
