This topic looks so funny to me but this is one thing i have learnt from the whole transformational leadership theory. i guess when scholars were looking for a name to give the next in line to the various endless leadership theories, the first thought that came to their mind is that unless an indidvidual can transform himself there is no way for such a person to transform an organisation where he leads or even a country.
Transfroming onselves for this theory goes beyond being self aware, its all about how do i get the best out of the people i lead and out of oneself so as to reach a desired and common purpose. when a transformational leaders ask this questions, i have come to realise that it not only helps the person to be more aware of oneself but helps the leader to transcend beyond the usual i.e leaving any form of vested interest aside for the good of others and the good of the institution he leads.
This is hard in reality because as humans we all think about ourselves first before others but inorder to be better leaders anywhere we find oursleves i think we have to keep vested interest aside.Transformational leadership is the key to any sucessful leadership i say!!!
