Productivity or Balance?

It is argued that the role of leaders is to get the maximum of their team either in quality or quantity. Most successful leaders are defined by the outcomes of the team.

One of the dilemmas is: should leaders be keen to ensure that their subordinates have a balance in their lives or leaders should make sure that subordinates' productivity is the maximum?

I think a successful leaders must ensure that their subordinates have a balance. High productivity can lead in some cases to loosing momentum or energy. I would like to quote Thomas Stewart's statement as it expresses the situation. He says that in the long-run "work and no play makes Jack a sitting duck"
