Since 2009, Rodney Knott has been providing men with the tools to change their lives through the SUPERMAN Principles, the eight spiritual principles developed through The Man Class© curriculum. These principles have been used many men to their transform lives. After providing them to men he trained he realized that these principles could be used to transform anyone’s life and decided to begin to offer them through this blog and hopefully later through a book. Mr. Knott believes that these spiritual principles if applied have the potential to revolutionize struggling lives into lives which are successful and fruitful.
Rodney Knott, Executive Director of ReEngage, Incorporated has consulted with the University of Missouri Kansas City to create a new approach to training and personal development. By combining responsible manhood and work ethics training Mr. Knott was able to provide training to a population that has been traditionally under-served and difficult to engage, fatherless males and the reentry population. We believe that this approach will offer success to those who are willing to fully participate in this training. As a result of his years of training with this population Rodney Knott has compiled a program that can be used by anyone to change their lives.
Rodney Knott is a local leader and resource in fatherhood initiatives in Kansas City. Mr. Knott has an extensive background in working with men and juveniles in both Kansas City, MO and KS, Atlanta, and St. Louis. He helps people recognize and exercise their hidden personal talents by providing support and confidence to overcome obstacles. This leads to an opportunity for success in the workplace for these participants. Mr. Knott has presented his vision for the need for fatherhood training and man building to large and small groups including city, state, and federal officials, The Kiwanis, The National Center for Fathering, The National Fatherhood Initiative, Truman Behavioral Health, the Housing Authority, the AFL-CIO Building & Construction Trades and many others.
