Rich Diviney's Biography

Rich Diviney wakes up every day to discover, inspire, and accelerate the potential of human beings. His deeply held belief is that each individual has unlimited potential that, once unlocked, can lead to not only living the life of one’s purpose and dreams – but also allow for inspirational contribution to others. This potential often goes untapped due to a lack of understanding and resources from which to draw upon.

It was these beliefs that lead Rich to read Simon Sinek’s “Start With Why” and subsequently develop a friendship with him. Through that friendship he was introduced to Bob Chapman and Barry-Wehmiller’s philosophy on human centered leadership. After meeting Bob and his team, he knew that this was a family and mission that he was meant to be a part of.

As a Director of Outreach for the Barry-Wehmiller Leadership Institute, Rich draws upon 20+ years of experience as a Navy SEAL Officer where he completed more than 13 overseas deployments – 11 of which were to Iraq and Afghanistan. Through his career, he has achieved multiple leadership positions – to include the Commanding Officer of a Navy SEAL Command. It has been this experience that has forged in his belief system that every human being has a purpose – and why Bob Chapman’s “Everybody Matters” philosophy resonates so deeply. The Barry-Wehmiller Leadership Institute serves this principle.
