Culture assessment and behaviour profiling

Using world-renowned culture assessment and behaviour profiling tools, Peak Performance can help you take the guess work out of people and culture decisions.

Culture Assessment

Culture can be described as the way an organisationa's people collectively think and behave. It is shaped by the leaders (past and present) and is reflected in the policies, processes, systems, structure and various practices that have become embedded over time. In other words "it is the way we do things around here."

Research confirms that a healthy culture where people feel the organisation is living its values has a significant impact on financial performance. Why? Because values and behaviours drive culture; culture drives employee engagement and fulfilment; employee fulfilment drives customer satisfaction and customer satisfaction ultimately drives shareholder value.

To help leaders understand, develop, measure and manage their culture, Peak Performance uses Barrett Values Centre's range of Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT). These powerful tools and metrics make the intangible tangible and help link culture to performance.

How Corporate Transformation Tools Work

CTT is the most comprehensive cultural diagnostic and values assessment available. It’s a simple on-line survey that takes about 15 minutes to complete. It identifies your people's personal values, the organisation's current and desired values and behaviours and their alignment and an overall measure of the organisation's cultural health.

CTT has been tried and tested by thousands of organisations across the globe. It is customised for every organisation and is available in several languages making it ideal for multinationals. Set-up costs are fixed and are the same for 30, 3,000 or even 30,000 employees.

Profiling People

When it comes to developing people, self-awareness is the best place to start. With an emphasis on people in leadership and sales roles, Peak Performance can help you to select the right profiling or psychometric assessment tools for the job.

Our team administers popular tools such as Hogan, The Leadership Circle, Centre for Creative Leadership Benchmark assessments, Leadership Values Assessment and others.

We also use Caliper and Everything DiSC personality profiles, strengths-based assessments like Strengths Finder, or Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI), emotional intelligence tests such as MSCEIT and behavioural profiles such as DiSC, HBDI, iWAM and MBTI.

Whatever tool you use, an empathetic and professional debrief and the subsequent training, coaching and mentoring is what makes the difference in performance.


We use the leading profiling tool iWAM (Inventory of Work Attitudes and Motivation). It’s a performance tool rather than a personality profile so there are no labels or types to box people into. Everyone’s profile is unique, like a fingerprint.

The online questionnaire takes less than 30 minutes and maps peoples’ thinking habits in relation to 48 aspects of work.

iWAM was developed in 2001 by Patrick Merlevede, a Belgian cognitive scientist and management consultant. It has been tested on more than 50,000 people worldwide, including Australians and New Zealanders, and has very high reliability (0.9) and validity.

iWAM can be used at all levels within the organisation and for a wide range of applications.

Visit the iWAM website or contact us for more information on this powerful tool.
