    "Interviewing for Senior Talent”                              

    Today, more than ever, change in demands on senior talent are occurring at a pace, which exceeds an organization’s ability to just simply adapt and evolve.  Senior talent must be able to see the future, remove barriers to adapting, and lead through changes.  Critical thinking is a key skill blended into leadership.  Contributive value is a key tool for you.

    Come prepared to discuss the following:

    - Resumes: Pertaining to Interviewing

    - Interview: Five Key Steps

    - Style of Interview: Accomplishment-Competency-Contributive Value

    - Leadership & Critical Thinking                                                                                 

    Our facilitator for this discussion is David Miles.  Biography for Dr. David C. Miles, SPHR, CMF      

    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 second edition in 2014, 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 four generations interact within today’s workforce—Seniors, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials— and how they perceive and embrace each of the Four Pillars. Dr. Miles became a published author once more in 2012, adding the second edition in 2013, with the publication of Building Block Essentials, a tactical guide for job searching.
