What Attributes Determine Success with Rich Diviney

Rich Diviney stopped by the Leadership Tales Podcast this season to give a fresh perspective on leadership, analyzing it through the lens of our individual attributes.

Rich is best known as the author of The Attributes: 25 Hidden Drivers of Optimal Performance, which draws heavily from his twenty years as a Navy SEAL Officer. Through his work in the world-renowned SEAL selection process, which whittles candidates down to the most optimal performers, Rich consistently found himself analyzing what core attributes actually led to success. Often, he would find himself surprised by which candidates would make it through and which would not.

In our conversation together, Rich goes over the importance of vulnerability, how our attributes determine our response to a situation, the difference between skills and attributes, and so much more. This episode will really get you thinking about your own leadership at a personal level!
