Psychology of High Performance

The Evalex theory of high performance is based on extensive and ongoing research into high impact corporate leadership as well as high performance teams, individuals and companies.

5constructsOur research indicates that work performance is the result of five human constructs that form a constellation of traits that culminate in either success or failure. These constellations or patterns of traits within an individual provide us with powerful information as to the typical roles in which the person will be successful, the level/complexity of role at which s/he will be effective, possible inhibitors to performance and development strategies required for growth.

The Evalex High Performance Competence Framework has evolved through years of research into the factors that drive high performance in a company. The five core constructs that drive performance translate into 14 behavioural competencies.

In order for a person to perform effectively in a given position, s/he needs to exhibit competencies in the following domains:


Unique to Evalex Psychometrics is our ability to provide our clients with a fully integrated view of an individual across cognitive ability, personality, work styles, values and interests. We have developed and researched all our psychometric tools ourselves, built them on a similar philosophy and normed them against the same population groups. This level of integration is almost impossible to achieve using tests from different suppliers, based on different philosophies and norm groups, to form an assessment solution.

Evalex Psychometrics consists of a number of carefully chosen assessment instruments based on our research into the drivers of performance in the world of work. These instruments have been in use since the early 1980s and have been well researched, all with best-in-class validity coefficients. The instruments have been registered with the Professional Board for Psychology at the Health Professions Council of South Africa.genericnameBased on an assessment of 68 dimensions, a rich tapestry of patterns and connections influencing how the person functions provides insight into typical roles s/he will succeed in, possible inhibitors, the ideal level of functioning (complexity) as well as development actions for growth.
