Our Core Values: Elevate K-12’s “Gyanisms”

Z6b 5053 1

Gyan: (ɡjɑːn) noun, a Sanskrit word that roughly translates to ‘knowledge’ or ‘wisdom’

While most companies define “values”, we call them “gyanisms”. They represent the knowledge and wisdom that guides us here at Elevate. Our gyanisms are a set of 6 core values; they are the guiding principles that give us a shared sense of purpose, define what we stand for, and guide how we act and make decisions.

El Value Obsess

Gyanism #1

Obsess about the customer

We obsess about all customers in our ecosystem; students,
teachers and school/district leaders.

Gyanism #2

Focus on outcomes

We each understand what outcomes our work is driving and recognize that performance is measured by the impact we make.

Gyanism #3

Act like owners

We take initiative when we identify problems or gaps in ownership and hold ourselves accountable, owning our successes and mistakes.

Gyanism #4

Ground decisions in detail and data

We are curious and stay connected to details; when something isn’t clear or seems off, we dig deep to find answers.
