About Rich Diviney
During his military career, Rich was intimately involved in the world-renowned SEAL selection process, which whittles exceptional candidates down to a small cadre of the most elite optimal performers. But Rich was often surprised by which recruits washed out and which succeeded. Someone could have all the right skills and still fail, while recruits he might have initially dismissed would prove to be top performers. The seemingly objective criteria weren’t telling him what he most needed to know: What does it take to be one of the highest-performing teams in the world?
Through years of observation, Rich learned to identify a successful recruit’s core Attributes, the innate traits for how a person performs as an individual and as part of a team. As well as understand once you build a high performing team you must understand how to move through stress and uncertainty to become resilient. That same methodology can be used by anyone in their personal or professional lives.
Upon retirement in early 2017, Rich started working as a speaker, facilitator, and consultant with the Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute and Simon Sinek Inc. to teach corporate teams how to become a high-performing team.
In 2021, he launched his first book: The Attributes, 25 hidden drivers of optimal performance. He also launched his own consulting business, The Attributes Inc, and developed the revolutionary selection technique, The Attributes Discovery, to help organisations select and assess the right people and form the best teams.
Rich resides with his wife and two children in Virginia Beach, VA, USA.
"Rich shared deep insights that will change the way your organization performs. He blew us away!"
CEO for Quantum Mastermind
"The hour went by so quickly! Rich deftly navigated us through attributes vs. skills using storytelling and experiences. Rich was able to explain what a high-performance team looks like and how to measure it in a business setting that resonated with our audience and left them wanting for more."
Executive Vice President for Walker&Dunlop
"We had Rich speak at our annual franchise convention and his message surrounding grit attributes really hit home with our franchisees! His talk was inspiring, thought provoking and I loved how he incorporated the fireside chat to his talk where it allowed us to have some in depth conversations regarding specific challenges, we face in our organisation around optimal performance. If you’re looking for someone to inspire your audience, give some tangible takeaways on how they can improve performance in business but also in life then Rich is the speaker you’re looking for!"
Vice President Field Operations for Tutor Doctor
"Not your typical Navy SEAL rah, rah speaker… Rich is the combination of part neuroscientist and part professor who built and tested his theories in the most elite special forces. My team was blown away."
President for BuildWitt
