Elijah Levy, Ph.D.
Educator, Author, Trainer and Consultant to Health Care and Mental Health Organizations
Your vision reveals the distance you must cover
I provide consultation to organizations interested in launching their business initiatives to improve organizational performance and
operate optimally through genuine, desired and enduring change.
I have been teaching in the undergraduate and graduate school of business at University of Redlands the last 30 years. My doctorate degree in clinical psychology enabled me to function as a clinical and program director in inpatient psychiatric programs where I developed my leadership and managerial skills. I understand organizational behavior, employee motivation and how to create work environments that pull for the best in employees. Together we can improve organizational performance through systematic analysis of existing organizational processes and developing specific plans for improvement. The multidisciplinary nature of organizational behavior reflects employee attitudes, values, capabilities and learning capacities.
Unless you act on your ideas to maximize organizational performance, your employees and organization will continue to operate at the just good enough level and the gap between current and optimal performance will widen
For your organization to function optimally, management is tasked with creating outstanding work teams and departments that can effectively respond to your customer's varied needs in domestic and global markets. Managers must be skilled at coordinating work efforts through designing structures that sustain stable relationships and processes.
In addition, I offer training to health care/mental health care organizations invested in training their health care providers to become culturally and linguistically competent providers. Since health care providers are at higher risk for developing compassion fatigue, I conduct self-care training to engender self-awareness in health care providers to establish and maintain healthy, wellness lifestyles.

Dr. Levy is a deeply thoughtful, caring individual who encourages and inspires all who come in contact with him to pursue their aspirations with conviction and courage. He emphasizes high ethical standards, critical thinking, and respect for diversity. His concern for the needs and well-being of others is rare and genuine. I am and will always be extremely grateful for the support and guidance he has provided me.
I had the good fortune of meeting Elijah when I applied for an adjunct teaching position at the University of Redlands. The university assigned him conduct my in-person interview and teaching demonstration. I had limited teaching experience at the time and, were it not for Elijah's calming, encouraging demeanor, I might not have performed well and, as a result, may have decided teaching was not for me. He was (and is) a model of intellectual vigor tempered with authentic humility and empathy that I took with me when engaging with my students in the years to come. I am deeply thankful to have met him at that critical stage in my personal and professional journey and know that the impact I have had the opportunity to make in the lives of my students is in part due to his influence on me.
