Achieving a Balance

I have worked with, and for, a number of managers in my own government career.  I noticed four types of focus that drove the leadership they provided:

1.  Focus on Self.
2.  Focus on task results.
3.  Focus on people.
4.  Focus on a balance between tasks and people.

The only ones that  I believe were effective, over time, were the ones who focused on the balance.  People who had any of the other types simply were not able to get the best effort of their people.

What type of leadership style brings out the best in you, and which one works best for your people?
