Dr. Miles Overholt
Founder & CEO
Educated at the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School, Miles Overholt blended the disciplines of large systems change, family therapy, research, and consulting to create unique ways to help organizations, teams and individuals change. He has worked with over sixty companies in key aspects of managing and aligning their workforce. Miles’ experience with corporate clients spans leadership and employee assessment, executive collaboration, day to day management practices, individual coaching, and corporate culture alignment. In recent years, Miles has focused his efforts in assisting companies manage through transition and transformation.
He is the author of Building Flexible Organizations: A People Centered Approach, a book focused on how employees and organizations fit—or don’t fit—to create high performance and financial results. He has also authored many articles on strategy execution, high performing organizations and teams, and successful approaches to leading change in organizations, teams and within individuals. He was awarded the Human Resource Planning Society’s 2005 Walker Prize as article of the year, “Building a Strategic HR Function: Continuing the Evolution.”
Combining his insights on human behavior, his experience with corporate dynamics, study on organizational modalities and a passion for turning data into actionable information, Miles created Strategia Analytics Inc. Like Miles himself, Strategia Analytics harnesses a unique approach to employee and management data capture and analysis, and produces actionable, affordable, objective, and effective results.
“These criteria—what employees at all levels know, what they believe, and how they feel about it—in short, your company’s DNA, are some of the clearest predictors of what those KPIs will eventually reveal.”
– Miles Overholt
