How to Separate Our “Roles” in Life from Our “Identity” 

Presented by Dan Stalp

The key to a healthy self-esteem is to separate our “roles” in life from our “identity” as an individual. It is important to see ourselves as more than our roles in life, rather than being defined by our roles.

During this interactive session you will discover:

• The difference between our identity and our roles.

• What roles many of us have.

• How to allow our self-esteem to dictate how we respond in our roles – and not vice versa.

• What behaviors can help us improve our identity; and

• What attitudes can help us improve our personal identity.


“Be Who You Came to Be”

Presented by Tara Renze

It's time to redefine balance, happiness and success. The old definitions of these "buzz" words are limiting women and steering us AWAY from what we truly want. Creating balance between career, family and community continues to be a struggle for career minded women throughout the U.S. It’s easier said than done to climb the career ladder and relinquish feelings of exhaustion, inadequacy, guilt and unhappiness.

Finding purpose, balancing career and home and living fulfilled are three priorities to women. In response to these situations, we ask ourselves many questions, including:

·       “How do I make an impact?”

·       “How do I find my purpose?”

·       “How do I become the best version of myself?”

·       “How do I create sustainable happiness?”

·       “How can I be successful at work and in the home?”

Be who you came to be is a thought-provoking, inspiring, genuine and fresh approach that answers these questions and helps professionals unlock and unleash their purposes in life.
