The purpose of this project was to strengthen the transformational leadership competence of students by incorporating perceptions of all course participants in the curriculum of a nursing leadership course. Students and faculty collectively assessed each other's ability to communicate, associate, sanction, delegate, initiate, and achieve external legitimacy by completing a Leadership Performance Competence Profile. Profile results guided the teaching strategies and activities used during the course. At the beginning of the course the sanction competence was perceived as a mutual weakness; at the end of the course perceptions of all six leadership competencies were stronger. End-of-course student satisfaction was also examined. This project suggests collaborative teaching strategies can enhance perceptions of competence and satisfaction of course participants.
