Why it is hard to be a transformational leader to those close to us

You cannot ever truly know another human being; this is the marvel and mystery of love and loving, of knowing and being known.   And yet, there is sadness in this knowing also. It is when we think we know all there is to know about someone or something that the relationship begins to die and lose its sacredness. Transformational leaders know there are multitudes of latent relationships to be known and enriched.  Not doing so may result in profound and devastating consequences. For those of us who are practicing transformational leadership, we find the most challenge applying it on those who are the closest to us and those we love the most.  We are more attached to winning the trust of new acquaintance and less able to inspire and uplift those nearest to our heart.  We also tend to assume that we know all there is to know about those we love. It is not easy to recognize, more so affirm, those we are close to.  But this is the sacred task.  And if we can practice it, even a little, we will begin to experience not only transformation, but also the sacredness in all our relationships. –  Mark Shryock l TalkShop Leadership Coach
