He has been the keynote speaker at many industry conferences and workshops related to human performance and organizational effectiveness.
Rodger served two terms on the Advisory Council of the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO). In that capacity, he advised the INPO board of directors and staff on issues and practices that are important to continuous performance improvement. (The INPO board consists of the CEOs of major utility companies.) In addition to his consulting practice, Rodger headed worldwide communication for Campbell Soup Company and was vice president of a global energy company. He’s also served on the faculties of three major universities.
Duncan Worldwide, now headquartered in the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area, has affiliates in North America, Europe, and Australia. Top-selling author Stephen Covey calls Rodger’s work on leadership “brilliantly insightful, inspiring – profound, yet user friendly – visionary, yet practical.”
Rodger earned a PhD in communication and organizational dynamics at Purdue University. The Duncan Report, his Internet column on leadership and organizational effectiveness, now reaches opt-in business subscribers in nearly 200 countries.
Rodger is author of the book Change-Friendly Leadership: How to Transform Good Intentions into Great Performance.
