CASTRO S, Marcelo; RINALDI C, Stefano y SELAIVE R, Reinaldo. A STUDY TO IDENTIFY DESIRED LEADERSHIP COMPETENCIES. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.2, pp. 94-98. ISSN 0717-9308. doi: 10.4067/S0717-93082008000200008.
A survey was performed in a number of Units of Radiology in Santiago, Chile, aimed at obtaining from each medical staff (physicians, technologists and ancillary personnel) estimations on what the Head of a Department of Radiology ideal profile should be. Five out of twelve desirable characteristics proposed had to be selected for statistical purposes. Results were analyzed in correlation with positions, age and workplace of those polled. From our findings we conclude that most valuable leading traits vary from different work units, mainly depending on positions held within each medical Imaging Department. Thus, a proactive leadership demands awareness of such considerations in order to improve organizational practices and results.
