Rich Diviney has become The Master of Uncertainty. The founder of The Attributes Inc., he helps create winning teams who use innovative ideas to navigate and conquer uncertainties.
The conference speaker draws upon over twenty years of experience as an accomplished Navy Seal Officer. His time in the armed forces saw him complete more than thirteen overseas deployments. Eleven of these were to Iraq and Afghanistan.
His career in the military saw him achieve various leadership positions. Amongst these Rich Diviney includes the Commanding Officer of SEAL Team Six. He was also involved in the world-renowned SEAL selection process. The process is designed to whittle down candidates into a small, exceptional elite group of optimal performers.
What surprised Rich Diviney about the process was the number of recruits who seemed to have the right skills yet failed. At the same time, those he would initially have dismissed often proved to become the top performers. The criteria used seemed objective but did not answer the question of what it takes to become one of the world’s highest-performing teams.
Rich Diviney cracked the code after years of observation. He learned to identify the core attributes that guaranteed success, i.e., the innate traits needed to perform as both an individual and as part of a winning team. He understands that once you have built your high-performing team, you need to understand how to move through stress and adversity in order to become resilient. This methodology can also be applied to an individual’s personal and professional life.
Upon his retirement from the military in 2017, Rich Diviney started working as a speaker, facilitator, and consultant. He teaches corporate teams how to become successful high-performing teams.
Rich Diviney launched his first book ‘The Attributes: 25 hidden drivers of optimal performance’ in 2021. He also launched The Attributes Inc., his own consulting business, and developed the revolutionary selection technique called The Attributes Discovery. He aims to help organisations select and access the right people to form the best teams.
As a conference speaker, Rich Diviney draws on his experience in the USA’s armed forces to help organisations develop high-performance, winning teams. He lives in the USA and presents in English.

“We had Rich speak at our annual franchise convention and his message surrounding grit attributes really hit home with our franchisees!
