How Fiery Red can show up in your Management Style


Insights Discovery is a powerful tool that uses a simple four-colour model to help individuals understand their unique preferences and behaviours. The four main colours are Fiery Red, Sunshine Yellow, Earth Green, and Cool Blue.

Businesses using this pshycometric tool have seen a measurable impact and by understanding your Insights Discovery personal profile, you can:

  • Gain a better understanding of yourself and your preferences.
  • Improve communication and develop more effective relationships.
  • Recognize colour energies in other people, which helps you to make conscious choices about actions and behaviours.

In this article, we will focus on how Fiery Red colour energy influences management styles.

The Fiery Red Manager: Decisive, Direct, and Action-Oriented

Managers with high levels of Red energy in their profile are often:

  • Focused, determined, and proactive.
  • Courageous risk-takers who move towards goals.
  • Clear and direct communicators who inspire action.
  • Fast decision-makers focused on speed and success.

However, there are times when typical Fiery Red behaviour can be perceived differently by others, especially those under stress and pressure. In these situations, this colour energy might be seen as coercive, controlling, arrogant or simply dismissive of other people's opinions.

Balancing Fiery Red Management: Tips for Enhancing Team Relationships

If you're a manager with high levels of this colour energy in your profile, consider these tips to strengthen the relationship with your team:

  • Remember that not everyone operates at your pace. Listen and ensure that everyone feels heard.
  • Focus on active listening without any distractions.
  • Implement regular 'pulse checks' with your team for reassurance and engagement.
  • Delegate responsibility and place trust in your team members to build their confidence.
