Why Partner with Elate?

One thing we know for certain is that every company is unique. Yet, we are all similar. We find our commonality in the idea that we’re all chasing the same thing: the vision in front of us and the north star that aligns us. There is not a one size fits all roadmap or blueprint to follow to get there, and inevitably, we will twist and turn along the way. Still, every day we ask ourselves, 

Where are we going and how are we going to get there? 

We believe that answer is complex, and one that cannot be solved with a platform alone.

At Elate, we are more than a platform. We are a team of intentional, curious individuals who are passionate about building a solution that works for you, and a community that inspires you. We partner with your team to provide tactical and tangible advice throughout your strategic planning journey. When you partner with Elate, we tackle strategic planning together with your company’s vision at the center. 

The Platform

Before introducing you to our partnership, let’s break down why we built Elate and how we help unlock planning and execution through our platform. 

Elate was born out of the pain our founding team felt firsthand building high-growth companies. Not as CEOs, but as the Strategy and Operations Leaders partnering alongside those visionaries to take a long-term vision and transform it into execution. 

From our founding team's own past experience, we recognize how important strategic planning and execution is to your company's success. Yet, we believe the old way of planning is broken. We built Elate to help Strategy and Operations Leaders navigate through each phase of dynamic planning by:

  • Maintaining radical simplicity for all employees, and
  • Simplifying how we surface insights to the leadership team so they have access to the information to take action.

We've found that these two ideas are central to unlocking your plan and uncovering opportunities for growth.

The Partnership

While Elate is built for radical simplicity, we know that you’re solving a complex problem with initiatives that span beyond the constraints of a platform. From preparing for your offsite meeting to rallying around change management throughout the organization, you are the trusted advisors that are handling the most delicate strategic matters. Our team is here to guide you, and cheer for you, every step of the way.

At the start of our partnership, implementation will be the key focus as we introduce Elate to the team. First impressions are everything, and we’re here to make it count. Every company is different, and we’ll meet you where you’re at in your journey to set up the platform, communicate widely, and gain adoption from the start. As your company grows and evolves, we will pivot and iterate, while supporting you through each stage. 

While we celebrate together upon successful launch, this is just the start of the journey. Our team of advisors are here to support you throughout the entire duration of the strategic planning lifecycle as you continuously plan, execute, and review. 

Here’s how we do it:

We plan together through strategic planning audits, customized action plans, and leadership workshops to communicate your vision and establish alignment.

We execute together through objective migrations and enablement sessions to gain adoption and increase visibility.

We review together through quarterly transition assistance rooted in metrics to make meaningful decisions.

The Community

At Elate, we are more than a platform. We’re building a community of Strategy and Operations Leaders from various organizations of different sizes and stages. We are built for you - the Chiefs of Staff, COOs, CSOs, and leaders navigating the ambiguous, ever-changing waters of what we call operations.

Through our Aspiring Ops podcast, engaging webinars, and community events, we are creating space to learn and grow together. We partner with leading organizations like On Deck, Voray, Chief of Staff Network, and Operations Nation to share best practices with thousands of Strategy and Operations Leaders just like you. 

As we all continue to chase the vision in front of us, we are here to guide, support, and connect you, every step of the way. When you partner with Elate, we tackle strategic planning together with your company’s vision at the center.
