“PEAKS identifies our Personality DNA to help us develop by choice, not by chance” Dr Shirley Lim


Dear Demo Person,

This Psychometric profile is a validated prediction of your natural disposition based on the well researched Five-Factor personality model and resilience studies. The PEAKS profile gives you reflections of your potential to peak perform, it is not an appraisal of your current performance. Ideally, contextual study is necessary to establish norms for specific groups, organisations or communities. However, very often, rough and ready patterns are required to give directions to development and planning. The predictions in these reports/profiles are therefore educated estimates and do not describe behavior. These predictions are accurate in identifying behaviors that are most natural for a person with certain personality traits and are best used as guided by a trained PEAKS certified consultant. Truly, there is beauty in every nature! Every personality disposition has its strengths and weaknesses. Through this profile, we hope you will gain a better understanding of yourself, and how you can peak perform in your personal and professional pursuits. We hope you will find this profile meaningful in your individual development and we wish you every success as you use this profile to climb towards personal, interpersonal and professional fulfillment.

PEAKS Project Manager Profile The PEAKS Project Manager Profile outlines the core functional competencies of a Project Manager. This Profile provides a project management template for self actualisation in your leadership and management of projects. Your scores are approximations of your natural, personality-driven propensities toward the specified competency and does not necessarily reflect your current performance. It does however mirror your deep level potential to excel natural under the appropriate supportive environments and given the necessary skills. The labels of “EXCEL” (ie, you have the natural potential to excel in this competency), “READY” (ie, you are ready to flow comfortably in exercising this competency) and “DEVELOP” (ie, you are less natural in this competency but can certainly develop excellence if you deliberately do so) are general indicators for peak performance in your Project Management journey.
