These leaders of excellence are moving people; powerfully, passionately and purposefully. The group, comprised of 13 nurse managers, met for five 1.5 hour sessions.

Program evaluation revealed themes related to the nurse managers role, including: an increased focus , a sense of control and job enjoyment, a less judgmental approach when dealing with staff issues, and enhanced listening skills.
