Mr. Rodriguez was asked to speak at the annual National Trial Lawyers Association Luncheon, which took place at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. The topic of Mr. Rodriguez’s keynote speech revolved around the “Mindset of a Champion.” He discussed his recent transition from his baseball career to full-time CEO of A-Rod Corp, but more importantly, how to “win” in the workplace.
He expressed the importance of mentorship and coaching to the younger members of his team, and how he encourages them to present their ideas and speak up to their colleagues and supervisors. The only way to improve and learn is to practice, practice, practice. He said, “you cannot become a trial lawyer, until you have tried your first case.”
