Dan Stalp – April 28

Dan StalpHow to Separate Our “Roles” in Life from Our “Identity”

with Dan Stalp of Sandler Training

Tuesday, April 28, 1:00-3:30 pm


As a professional speaker, much of our “identity” may be tied to this one role. Therefore, when we don’t get hired or we are rejected in any way, we tend to take things “personally.”

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 much 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.
  • What attitudes can help us improve our identity.
