This paper reports on a narrative study, conducted between September 2003 and December 2004, on the impact of transformational leadership theory of senior executive level nurses during the creating of a Nursing strategy.  The purpose of the study was to reflect and evaluate how these nurses created such a strategy for their hospital through the evolution of their group as a community of practice.  The group consisted of six senior nurse leaders and the Nurse Executive and her deputy.  The method used to collect findings was questionnaire and focus-group interview.  The findings reveal how group dynamics and leadership characteristics converged in order to create the strategy.  They also denote the key actions individuals within a community of practice of this nature should take in order to implement strategy.  A strong leadership ? fellowship dynamic is exposed and this process of guiding change and development, whilst implementing a strategy, seems crucial if success is to be realized.
