Rod enjoyed a meteoric rise from a young Marine officer to the second youngest House Speaker in Missouri state history. He was on the fast track to becoming Governor of Missouri, when his personal life exploded as he went through a very public and humiliating fall.
He explains how his hypocritical lifestyle led to his downfall and he points out how pride, flattery, bitterness and paranoia can have terrible consequences for those in charge of large organizations. Using personal examples, Rod warns listeners about the dangers of letting success go to their heads. Rod’s candid way of explaining his mistakes and pointing out the dangers of putting his career in front of his faith and family are of great benefit to driven leaders focused on accomplishing their goals.
