They meet other peoples’ expectations easily, but struggle with their own. The must be held accountable by a friend, coach or boss to get things done.
Upholders meet inner and outer expectations. They love rules, having a clear plan and are self-motivated and disciplined. Clearly tell them what needs to be done and they’ll lead the way
