Show the transformation

Harry Potter goes from under-stairs nobody, to courageous wizard.

Moana goes from island-bound royalty, to rebellious, demi-god-wrangling saviour of the sea.

Simba goes from naïve cub, to brave leader.

Instead of ‘leading’ a team, try serving them instead.

Don’t ask “what can they do for me?”.

Ask “what can I do for them?”.
