Hoover, AL – Jim Peak is an executive coach, author, speaker and the founder of Peak Type and Transition where he specializes in helping individuals navigate transition and change, specifically in the area of retirement.

Originally a civil engineer, Peak discovered that he enjoyed the ‘civil’ (working with people) part of his job much more than the ‘engineering’ technical part.

In major life transitions such as retirement, Peak first pulls directly from knowledge gained from his diverse assignments in his forty-year career as an Army civilian. As a certified administrator of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, Peak often relies on that long-established tool to examine his client’s preferences shaped by their personality. After researching and linking personality preferences over many years, Peak co-authored a book in 2011 entitled “Introduction to Type and Reintegration – A Framework for Managing the Transition Home” that targeted service members returning from deployments.

Upon entering his own retirement in 2015, Peak observed that the transition from work to retirement involved much more than just being prepared financially.

During Peak’s retirement transition, he discovered a valuable tool that was helpful in fleshing out his retirement interests and goals. The retirement diagnostic tool that Peak prefers to use is the Retirement Success Profile (RSP) offered by Retirement Options, a division of Career Partners International, LLC.

“Retirement doesn’t have to be scary,” says Peak.
