Bates LTPI™ Assessment Certification

Program Overview

In today’s fast-paced, demanding business world, it’s more important than ever for teams to be high performing. While the importance of having high performing teams isn’t new, what has changed in just a few years’ time is the definition of a high performing team. Teams today must work at the speed of change, manage frequent disruption, and try to stay ahead of the pace of advancing technology. The challenge is that this is hard. Team failures are costly, and it is rarely external forces that create the impediment. 

This is where the Bates LTPI™ (Leadership Team Performance Index) comes in. Our assessment provides teams and their leaders keen insights into essential behaviors that typify today’s high performing teams. This new model and assessment draw on the latest research on global teams as well as tried and true, proven tenets of great team performance. Building on the expertise and data-driven insights gained through implementing our Bates Executive Presence Index (ExPITM) for 4 years, together with the latest global research on teams, the LTPI™ delivers a unique and revolutionary way to shine a light on the team’s collective strengths and gaps, in real time, with the goal of interpreting that data in context with the team’s mission, goals and business challenges.

The cost of certification is $2,995 which includes a free LTPI™ survey for your first client - a $1,295 value - if the survey is used within 60 days of completing the program.

What Will You Learn in Bates LTPI™ Assessment Certification?

The Bates LTPITM Assessment Certification program provides talent and organizational development leaders and consultants with the opportunity to explore and appreciate the uniqueness of the Bates LTPITM assessment and the reliable Bates process of ensuring that the data translates into insights and actionable feedback for the team and its leader.  Through the program, you will gain confidence and competence in administering the Bates LTPITM.  In addition to learning the Bates Leadership Team Performance Index model, you’ll get hands-on practice in analyzing and interpreting LTPITM data as well as opportunities to work in small groups to prepare for powerful debrief meetings with clients.

Features that set the Bates LTPITM apart:

  • Is a 360 survey that gives teams feedback from other teams and key stakeholders
  • Draws on the latest global research and best practices
  • Addresses today’s emerging organizational challenges such as Belonging and Both/And Thinking
  • Is context-specific to the team’s business imperatives
  • Highlights gaps between the team’s intentions and perceptions 
  • Aligns with the Bates ExPI™, a multi-rater 360, that measures individual executive presence

By measuring both internal and external dynamics, the LTPI will help you give teams insights they cannot get anywhere else. People who have become certified tell us that the insights provided by the LTPITM have helped their clients become more effective in reaching their business objectives.

Through the program, you will learn how to:

  • Become fluent in describing the three dimensions and 15 facets of the LTPI™ model
  • Gather information to make feedback relevant to the team's strategic goals and challenges
  • Spot common themes and patterns that will help you create greater meaning from the data
  • Prepare to facilitate a high-impact team debrief session that gets to the heart of the issues and creates momentum for action
  • Enable teams to embrace their strengths while addressing their development themes
  • Connect team performance to business results, differentiating you as a trusted advisor and strategic partner
  • Make the link between the ExPI™ and the LTPI™, if appropriate

Why Choose Bates LTPI™ Assessment Certification?
