The Red


As a Red Challenger, you value strength above all else and have a take-charge, no-nonsense, can-do attitude. You have great pride in your ability to face, endure and overcome adversity, and you pass this on to your clients. Your assertive stance and imposing presence make you a ‘force of nature’ and your natural charisma means you are an inspiring role model for your clients. You have a lust for life and want to experience everything to the fullest and help your clients do the same. You believe that ‘too much of a good thing is almost enough’. You want to be open, honest, direct and straightforward and your clients appreciate this in you. These traits mean that you are great at what you do, but this journey is about you stepping up, being fully visible, and showing up in the world.

Below is your map for the journey.

How does my map work?

Your map is a visual device that enables you to recognise and relax the ways you avoid being visible so you can show up in the world.

The outer layers of your map show how your inborn personality traits have become conditioned and fear-driven ways of avoiding showing up in the world. The centre of your map points a specific quality that describes who you are beyond your fear-based conditioning. In the case of the Red Challenger who you are beyond your conditioning is described as the quality of Power.

Learning to use your map enables you to heal and transform your patterns of closure and defence and re-connect you with the 'real' you at the centre of the map.

Your journey to living your calling

As a Red Challenger, you avoid being visible and don your mask any time you feel weak or out of control. Your journey to becoming visible is concerned with the ways you ensure you avoid being weak. Because you fear being powerless you set up a hard and intimidating exterior. You avoid being weak, vulnerable, controlled or manipulated. Secretly, you fear being caught off guard, harmed and/or humiliated. Being mistreated and at the mercy of injustice are among your deepest fears. You resist and defy anything that is imposed upon you. Fearing deprivation, you avoid ever having to go without what you deem essential to your survival. You do everything in your power to avoid being dependent on anyone or anything. Your vice is excess and going to extremes. Whatever you like, you want more of and whatever you do, you overdo at full speed. Quick to respond, you can overreact and come on too strong. You can be too much, too intense, and unwilling to self-limit. Seeing life as a battlefield or a contest of wills, you can become confrontational and have difficulty backing down or admitting defeat and, like a general surveying the battlefield, you are not interested in subtle nuance but rather in the big picture. Your attention goes to issues of power. Who has it and most importantly, if it is being used fairly. You can be relentless in your search for truth, justice, power, and influence.

In terms of showing up in the world, you sabotage your efforts by:

  • Controlling everything and everyone!

  • Treating the world as a battlefield in which you must win. 

  • Presenting a strong and dominating image.

  • Ignoring feedback and insisting you do things your way.

  • Going it alone, being overly independent and shutting others out.

  • Denying any weakness.

  • Never stopping to reflect and stampeding through obstacles that come your way.

In your one to one work, this could mean that you often find yourself:

  • Dropping into 'tell mode' and fixing client's problems for them.

  • Bulldozing clients into a course of action that might not be the most congruent for them.

  • Suggesting direct action in preference to thinking things through.

  • Becoming irritated by any weakness or resistance your clients might show.

  • Insisting your way is the right way.

  • Being unable to show your own vulnerability.

The journey to becoming visible means recognising and transforming these patterns of behaving, thinking and feeling so you can relax you egoic patterns and step into your inner power.  

How will using my map help?

By using your map as a practice to connect to your inner power you will naturally feel more:

  • Relaxed - as you overcome your usual desire to be quite so controlling of the people around you and in your coaching sessions.

  • Vulnerable - as you learn to 'show up' and share more of who you are with the world and your clients.

  • Peaceful- as you let go of the need to bend the will of the universe to meet your demands, and can soften the actions you request from your clients

  • Accepting - as you feel less angry and impatient when things do not go your way.

  • Balanced - as you relax the need to work so hard with and on behalf of your clients.

  • Alive - as you live more fully in the moment rather than moving on to the next big thing.

  • Graceful - as you learn to talk through your vulnerability and innate power.
