About Bates

The art of origami requires a vision for a finished work as well as exceptional skill in bringing that shape to life. Leaders bring an organization’s spirit to life and realize its potential by engaging others with a vision and mobilizing them to act. 

We guide leaders to shape and improve organizational performance by aligning people around purpose, galvanizing action, and inspiring teams to go above and beyond. Our distinctive work in communicative leadership combines the science of executive presence with the art of coaching, facilitation, and consultation.   

The Bates approach is distinct because of our unique lens on communicative leadership, grounded in assessment and analysis. There is a precision to our process that ensures we are guiding the leader, team, or organization to better performance. We target development, provide actionable advice, and rely on data as well as observation to affirm we are on the right track towards achieving the goals of the engagement.
