Mark C. Maletz is a Senior Fellow at Harvard Business School. He is an internationally recognized thought leader in the areas of leadership development and organizational transformation.
Maletz has also served as a virtual professor of management and a senior research fellow at Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts. His research and consulting activities focus on helping companies improve their leadership capabilities and reshape their cultures with an orientation towards both values and performance. He has been responsible for more than 50 large-scale leadership development and organizational change initiatives in companies across a variety of industries, both in the Americas and in Europe.
Previously, Maletz was a partner at McKinsey & Company and a leader of the firm’s organization practice. At McKinsey, he played a leadership role in numerous change-related and M&A engagements (specializing in the cultural dimension of post-merger integration), as well as leading a major research initiative on “Managing in the Whitespace” (which resulted in an HBR article in February 2001).
Maletz has pioneered experiential approaches to leadership development and the shaping of organizational culture. He has also developed a unique ability to work across levels of an organization and to bring new “lenses” (i.e. ways of seeing the world and workplace) to the organization. His graduate work in Cognitive and Computer Science was done at the University of Michigan and the Industrial Technology Institute. He is chair of the executive committee of the EastWest Institute and a member of the foundation board of the Boston Arts Academy and sits on the boards of three entrepreneurial technology businesses. He is married and lives in the Boston area with his wife, Ilana, and their three children.
