Here is a tiny thing I learned about transformational leadership:

Going from “I am x” (where x is some troubling or upsetting feeling or self-judgment, and thinking that x is part of your identity, i.e. x “has” you), to “I have x” (and realizing that x does not “have” you, i.e. it is not part of your identity) is a big part of becoming a more effective leader.

It takes working on your mindset and auto-pilot thinking to go beyond “I am x”. And it is really hard work. Not physically hard. Mentally hard.

Thanks Michael Spayd and Michele Madore!
