As a team lead, this is the approach I try to take. I spend most of my time tackling the problems that are blocking other team members from getting work done. It's not sexy but keeping 3 guys working is more valuable than me getting to work on feature work. Sometimes the things that are blockers are the more interesting challenges and sometimes it's just frustrating bugs, but either way it's satisfying to me when I see the team cranking through our assigned feature.
