Marcie R. Elias, J.D.
Marcie Elias is an organizational psychologist focusing on executive coaching, leadership development and consultation with senior management teams. Drawing on her training in individual and organizational psychology and psychoanalysis, Marcie utilizes her knowledge of internal, interpersonal and group dynamics to help organizations achieve optimal performance through their people. Her previous experience as a practicing attorney enables her to bring an analytical and solution-oriented perspective to complex organizational matters.
Marcie has worked with groups and individuals across a diverse spectrum of industries. She has worked extensively with pharmaceutical, financial, manufacturing, media and entertainment and technology companies. In her leadership coaching practice, she has worked with business leaders and senior executives on developing their repertoire of leadership and management competencies, as well as on defining and achieving their professional aspirations. She also works with top executives who are leading their organizations through periods of significant growth and change. Marcie attributes success in her coaching work to her strongly-held philosophy that every executive coaching program must be grounded in sound data about the individual and the organization and must be inextricably linked to current business objectives.
Her leadership development experience is in designing programs to cultivate top talent in organizations through the use of ongoing, highly focused interactive learning processes that attend to individual, interdepartmental and organizational dynamics. Marcie’s hallmark in her leadership development programs is the use of a facilitated peer consultation process, which builds effective problem solving, decision-making, collaboration and communication skills while simultaneously providing the organization with a sustainable mechanism for addressing organizational and business challenges in real time.
Marcie holds a Masters degree in Organizational Psychology from Columbia University, a law degree from New York University School of Law, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Emory University. She is presently completing her psychoanalytic training at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis.
