#390: The Attributes of Successful People with Rich Diviney

Rich Diviney draws upon 20+ years experience as a US Navy SEAL Officer, where he completed 13 overseas deployments.  Throughout his career he achieved multiple leadership positions, including Commanding Officer.   During his time as the officer in charge of training for a specialized command, Diviney reworked the selection and assessment program to identify key attributes rather than just skills.  This allowed him to more effectively explain the success and failure of candidates and more importantly it allowed him to put together the highest performing team possible.   Since retiring from active duty Rich has worked as a speaker, facilitator and consultant with the Chapman & Co.
