Dr Elicia Robinson is a social psychologist, leadership strategist and executive coach who has a calling to help leaders optimise their impact and that of those they lead. She has a natural focus on the psychodynamic factors that frame mindsets and shape interaction which support leaders to make the transition from where they are to where they want to be by helping them become more self-attuned, interpersonally aware and socially astute: three competences which she firmly believes underpins the effectiveness of our messaging and the quality of our relationships (at work and in general).
Her coaching practice blends social cognitive science and motivational insight with transformational dialogue. Elicia helps clients not only attend to the forces of structure and culture, but also capitalise on their strengths and unique opportunities to chart a clear path forward and know what is the best next move. She has served as a trusted confidante and sounding board within a wide range of industries including defence, aerospace, investment banking and digital tech.
Elicia’s approach stems from three degrees on human relations and change including her doctoral research at the University of Cambridge which explores the crux of ‘buy-in’. Insight that facilitates personal leadership, team relations and culture alignment. By addressing the paradoxical need for meaningful continuity during times of change, Elicia knows how to get more mileage out of new ideas.
She is a chartered and associate fellow of the British Psychological Society, a certified principal business psychologist and strategic advisor to The Association for Business Psychology, and on the Board of International Advisors at the University of Exeter Business School. She is originally from Montreal, Canada, speaks fluently in French and is currently based in Devon, UK with her husband and 2 year-old daughter who is teaching her how to speak Czech.
