Author and former Navy SEAL Rich Diviney on Attributes, Optimal Performance and Leadership.
Today's Conscious Conversation is with Rich Diviney. Rich is a retired Navy SEAL and author of Attributes. Rich was part of working with the Navy's elite SEAL selection process and realised that often skilled and athletic soldiers weren't cutting it. They were the perfect recruits on paper, but he discovered that it was less about having skills and the right attributes were what mattered.
Today we discuss his incredible book (Attributes) and his work with leaders and companies to elevate performance, recruiting and culture.
Sustaining your game with performance coach, speaker and author Alan Stein Jr

Jake shares nuggets of life lessons around service and simplicity. This conversation was deep and chilled. I think that's just how Jake rolls.
Grab a coffee and enjoy.
Living simply and with gratitude with Katie Mitchell
I came across Katie in a gratitude project I did recently. Her morning gratitudes were incredible. Here's one: (Today, I am grateful for cherry blossoms! The first blossoms opened this morning on our cherry tree. She is the Grand-dam of all our fruit trees, and her blossoms signal the beginning of the blossom cascade. We will be swimming in a sea of bees, blossoms, and perfume by next week.) Katie would make my heart smile each morning, so I had to get her on the show. This conversation is all about the beauty and depth of simplicity.
