A study and comparative analysis of effective and ineffective leadership skills of physician and non-physician health care administrators.Health Serv Manage Res. 1998 May; 11(2):124-35.HS
This paper explores and compares, at both micro and macro levels, the leadership skills of effective and ineffective managers in a health care setting. In addition, it compares the leadership skills of physician and non-physician health care administrators at both levels. The results indicate that effective managers have significantly different leadership skill profiles than ineffective managers. Furthermore, effective managers have a more complete set of skills and are not as likely to rely on one type of skills as the ineffective managers. In addition, no substantial evidence was found to support prior assertions that physician administrators would be deficient in leadership skills.
