The Divergineer Story


Divergineer is the business consulting arm of Chenal Family Therapy and is an outgrowth of an award-winning experiment in prioritizing people as a way of prioritizing profits. 

In our journey of growing to more than 100 employees, spread across 20+ locations in multiple states, the requests for us to share the lessons learned with other companies and other industries has grown exponentially. 

The name is a mash-up of two distinct concepts that we believe are crucial for anyone leading a company in our rapidly evolving world and business landscape.


First, that companies should always be focused on creating "diverging lines," where their revenue increasingly curves upward and away from a company's cost of doing business. In other words, profitability percentages needs to grow as a company scales, not just remain stable. 

Second, that such a divergence is most attainable when the cultural experience that surrounds the people aspect of a company is deliberately "engineered" to create safety for employees to connect with their team, explore their own workplace identity, and engage in innovative and disruptive thought. 

Diverging lines + engineered cultural = Divergineer
