Hosted by Roxanne "Rox" Bartel, this podcast uses stories and reflection questions to support deeper thinking and exploration for listeners.

Rox walks with her clients, helping them contribute more and expand their influence, while enjoying the journey as they uncover patterns and habits that impede or inspire the future they seek. Her focus is on expanding awareness - self-awareness - and a deeper understanding of our impact in and on the world.

In 2021 she is focusing on resilience; why, how and what to do to expand it so we can make the most of the post-pandemic world we crave. 

Contact Rox for a complimentary exploratory conversation or examine her workshop on building the skills to be resilient. Links to connect are available in all show notes.

Control is an illusion - we've all heard that and we laugh it off.

We call this a positive illusion because it is what gets us moving when we would prefer to just remain stuck.

It can be a problem for leaders though. If you are a senior leader who is struggling with compliance issues and you need to get things moving in the right direction - you will benefit from listening to this episode.

The blog post includes some tips to help you manage this illusion and as promised I describe an extra "bias" - The Illusory Superiority.

Listen especially for this week's iteration of my various definitions of what a bias is.

In the comment section share a variation of the definition that you think may offer a fun twist.

ImpactBank is in the business of coaching and mentoring senior leaders who are striving to master the art & practice of leadership in the non-profit sector.

Thank you to all the regular listeners. A special thanks to Kimberly for all your enthusiastic support and advice EVEN THOUGH YOU RECENTLY ASSURED ME YOU DON'T LISTEN TO PODCASTS; to Olivia, Sara, James, Brian and Glen for your direct and thoughtful feedback; to Augusta for the coaching (you really are kick-ass and I hear you in my head every week).

Thanks again to Greg and Rob for the Kickass Koach theme.
