    38. Don't Let Your Job Title Define Your Identity

    “So, what do you do?” Beyond this simple question lies a complex reality: in our quest for titles, we often overlook the essence of our work and what truly brings us joy. Not every job is meant to be a source of unbridled joy and purpose; for most, it's a means to an end. Kendall Berg explains why there's more to life than working, and there's more to your identity than your career. 
    On today's Secrets of the Corporate Game episode, Kendall focuses on the importance of refining our identities. She shares tips how we can separate the professional title from your personal lives and build an identity for yourself that you are passionate about.
