Chairman of The Miles LeHane Companies & author of The Four Pillars of Employable Talent and Building Block Essentials
Dr. David Miles is the Chairman of The Miles LeHane Companies, as well as the author of The Four Pillars of Employable Talent and Building Block Essentials. He acquired the business with his wife and business partner, Melanie, in 1992, following a twenty-five year career with Marriott Corporation (Saga). During the ensuing years he has grown this Strategic Management and Talent Management Consulting Firm into five primary areas of practice: Strategic Management Planning, Coaching, Career Transition, Executive Search and Human Resources Products and Services. Becoming a published author in 2011, with the fourth edition in 2017, Dr. Miles’ The Four Pillars of Employable Talent offers readers thought-provoking analyses of the changes that have transformed the workplace as well as a compelling argument for why an individual must possess four key attributes to be employable in today’s challenging job market: resilience, balance, strategic career planning, and active financial planning. He also examines how each of the five generations interact within today’s workforce—Seniors, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials and IGens (Gen Z) — and how they perceive and embrace each of the Four Pillars. Dr. Miles became a published author once more in 2012, adding the fourth edition in 2017, with the publication of Building Block Essentials, a tactical guide for job searching.
