CONSULTANT – Boris Leite

Boris Leite

Boris has a passion for organizational transformations that include profound shifts in culture, mental models and the ways people operate to produce business results. He developed as a professional in the management consulting industry during the 10 years he spent working for McKinsey, serving several companies in Latin America, Europe and the U.S. in sectors including banking, telecommunications, consumer goods, retail, basic materials, and payor/providers. Boris has worked with clients on diverse strategic themes, ranging from comprehensive turnarounds to sustainable growth, and including areas such as marketing, sales, operations, finance, innovation, and human resources. Boris is a founding partner of Ekantika, a company dedicated to supporting business transformation through a whole-system perspective. Boris holds an M.B.A. from INSEAD, France, and received a B.S. in electrical engineering from the Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Brazil. He was born in Cordeiro, Brazil and currently lives in São Paulo with his wife Viviane and two children, Gustavo and Isabela.

Helping companies and individuals go through a journey of transformation has been a great learning at multiple levels, including my very perception of what matters in my own life. I am convinced that in this fast paced business world the only way to transform is through an integrated approach that speaks to the heart and soul of the individuals, while at the same and at the same producing tangible business results. I have found that too often people and companies try to focus on a fragmented aspect of reality, losing sight of the whole. The result is a mosaic of complex and fragmented initiatives that are often countering each other and dissipating lots of energy without producing real results for the system. My personal quest is to help bring coherence to the system where I am working in a way that lets people blossom while exploring who they really are.
