Bill, self-discipline is most effective. We are far more committed when it comes from within. Goleman's suggested Leadership Styles are focused on ensuring the conditions are right for teams to take responsibility and do what's needed.

Bill, it is important to understand your team as individuals and support them in their work. Encourage and support them in using the strength. Ask then to come up with plans / suggestions in addressing their weaknesses (this should be part of performance contract and career development), of course hold them to their commitment. Your role should be to support and guide through mentoring and coaching. Your staff will be self disciplined.
