The National Center for Healthcare Leadership, Chicago, unveiled "a database" of leadership competencies for healthcare executives, using benchmarks from Fortune's top 100 performers as a way to help guide the decisions and behaviors of hospital administrators and other healthcare businesspeople. Officials said researchers spent nearly two years on the NCHL's "Healthcare Leadership Competency Model," developing a list of 26 core competencies identified as vital to the success of executives and their organizations. Officials said the competencies are organized around three key areas of leadership: the ability to stimulate change, translate strategies into improved performance, and motivate and energize employees. More information on the model should be available Monday on the NCHL's Web site, www.nchl.org, officials said. -- by Michael Romano
