Leadership type: The Maintainer

You are the thoughtful, calm and amiable leadership type and are very understanding of the needs of your employees. You are appreciated because you are a master at handling difficult situations, staying on top of things and seeing the big picture.

It seems like you can explain something to your assistant while still making two phone calls without losing your train of thought for even a moment. Admirable. Your long-term memory is phenomenal and you remember all the important numbers, dates, facts from the last few years. You don’t have to look it up first, you have it all stored in your upper parlor. You also have a very pleasant voice that has a calming effect on sometimes heated tempers.

Problem areas of the Maintainer type

If you give in to your mind for a long time and eat whatever you crave, you will start feeling more sluggish, your energy will decrease, and lethargy may set in as a result. To prevent that, here are a few health tips.

Health tips for the Maintainer

Manage to exercise regularly, either change the company you work for- or if it is your own, change your office or even introduce something new, you will continue to shine with your strength and stamina.

Napping in the office might not be so good for you. A short brisk walk will have a vitalizing effect on you. Dumbbell workouts, walking, yoga and a standing desk will keep you energized.
