Task vs. Relationship Paradigm

High Task vs. Low Relationship = What is found in most organizations

High Relationship vs. Low Task = Not an effective leadership balance

High Task vs. High Relationship = Greatest sense of balance and makes the greatest impact to team and organization.

The task component is the "manager", the relationship component is the "leader". To be the most effective leader for any organization, results have to happen; there must be a balance between task and relationship. Providing individualized oversight to your team members is the best way to ensure they feel a relationship exists, while being accountable to performance measures will ensure the task aspect exists.
