Do You Speak Others’ Personality Language?

We Help People Thrive

A family is a group of people. A church is a group of people. A business is a group of people. A team is a group of people. So in all circumstances in life, we are dealing with people—and if you don’t understand people—you will misunderstand them. Trouble at work. Trouble at home. Trouble at church. We train you to apply proven methodologies and procedures that will help you take any relationship to the pinnacle—to the top—and eliminate that trouble. Want to lower stress and increase productivity with your team? Call our team. We don’t just help you survive, we help you thrive!

It’s all about people—always has been—always will be. Contact us today and let’s talk about learning to understand other people as you understand yourself.

Who Needs This?

Who will this help? You—no matter who you are. Management needs to understand their team and the team needs to understand management. Spouses need to understand one another. Parents need to understand their children. Some of your kids are totally different than you. Totally. You just don’t get them. You compare those that are not like you to those that are like you—“Why can’t you be more like your sister??”—ouch.  Spouses—you typically marry your opposite—how do you learn to understand your spouse when they think in another personality language? And how do they understand you? It’s like you’re from another planet! Almost seems programmed for failure. And your boss! She’s so incredibly domineering and task oriented while you’re reserved and people oriented—how do you learn to understand what she really means so you can be the best at your job? And how do you help her understand you so you can communicate well to best accomplish the job? What about understanding your parents? My dad and I didn’t connect all our lives—and then he passed away. None of these personalities are right or wrong—none of them are good or bad—we are all different. Come learn to connect with anybody.


Your personality affects 99% of what you do in life—and yet most of us don’t correctly understand our own personality—let alone someone else’s personality. Everything we do here at the Caris Group is designed to help you communicate better with others—because that’s where life happens—or doesn’t happen. Chances are good that you don’t understand some of the important people in your life—like your spouse, your boss, your kids, your parents—and if you don’t understand them, you will misunderstand them. You do what you have to do to get by—to survive. But life is too short to just survive—and if truth be told, most of us aren’t even surviving. We’re angry or hurt. It doesn’t have to be this way. We can show you how to thrive and lead yourself and others to a life well lived.

Church Leadership Training

Do you know the culture of your church? Your staff? Do you know the personality of your staff? Do you speak their personality language? Do you know your leadership lid? Are you a good pastor or just a good preacher? Are you so task oriented you forget that it’s about people? Who is your mentor? Who is positive accountability in your life? Do these things not matter to you? Do you find yourself asking, “God, why are you doing this to our church?”

Depending on how you answered the questions above, you could be  headed for trouble—or maybe you’re like thousands of other churches out there that are already in trouble and don’t even know it—or not sure how to fix it. We can help you and your staff employ the correct leadership principles and take your church to the next level. Don’t just hope you’re doing it right, make it sure. Read more…

What others are saying about Royce White and The Caris Group…

“Truly thank you. Your character, message, and advice were truly inspirational. Thank you for opening my eyes to my own tendencies as well as giving me a better understanding of how to deal with others.”


“Thank you for helping us learn something more about ourselves and others around us.  It was nice to have some insight on me and my personality.  I look forward to starting your book. What I learned will help me to hopefully handle others differently according to their personalities.  Thank you for your time and making the experience fun and enjoyable.”


“I would take your class all over again in a heartbeat, it was just that good for all of us.”


“You are an Amazing Storyteller!!!”
Founder, Mental Health Advocate


“Royce’s background in leadership and management alone makes him an excellent choice for an executive coach. Moreover, his ability to anticipate and challenge excuses or reluctance has made the time we’ve spent together truly meaningful, effective, and priceless. He is sincerely interested in my development and asks critical and effective questions. In my wildest imagination, there is no better way to have invested my time than with this leader of leaders.”
Executive Director of Weekend Experience
Eastside Christian Church (Anaheim, CA)


“Brilliantly written!”
Pharmacist, Speaker, Coach, Entrepreneur, Skip4Life


“Royce has really helped give me a clear sense of the habits that I need to work on improving in order to get where I want to go. He has helped me become more intentional about growing, rather than having a haphazard approach to everything, which is my normal tendency. He has forced me to dig deep into my own heart and figure it out. Through Royce’s help, I have a clearer scope on the steps I need to take in order to go where I want to go with my career and have become aware that I need to make drastic shifts in order for the things I want to accomplish to happen.”


“Thank you Royce for the outstanding class. Your coaching skills and guiding hand has inspired me to be more intentional with my goals. You helped me to poke and prod myself to figure out who I was and what I wanted to accomplish. You gave me that renewed spirit and determination that pushed me to find a path to success. Thank you Royce – you are truly an inspiring individual!”

“It was a pleasure attending your leadership class—I’ll miss the great discussions we’ve had. The class has sparked a new energy for me, has taught me to never be stagnant, to step out of my comfort zone in order to experience greatness, to expand and keep growing despite life’s challenges that are always looming. Thank you for helping guide and stretch us with your loving leadership, kindness, and wisdom.”


“As my mentor, Royce has been hugely successful at helping me grow, and I feel the bedrock to that is the way he approaches me. He teaches me in ways appropriate to my specific learning style; he chooses select ways and words that I naturally hone in on in a positive manner. While nurturing my strengths, he never neglects pointing out my weaknesses with various ways for me to overcome them. Royce has helped me develop the confidence, focus, and drive I will need to succeed in life.


“I urge you to take any opportunity to work with Royce and experience his mentoring. As a college student, I used to struggle with time management, setting goals, and public speaking. Through working with Royce, I have grown immensely in each of these three areas. Royce is an incredibly gifted and inspiring individual who uses his talents to help others achieve their dreams. Now, I am completing goals I once thought were impossible, and I have won several public speaking competitions through the aid of Royce’s wisdom. If you desire to achieve exponential personal growth, look no further. Royce will take your game to a whole new level.”


“Thank you very much for helping me understand others better. I especially liked the way you emphasized that leadership is based on people. This will help me in my daily interactions with others. It will help me to be more accepting toward others, and help me to realize the impact we all can have. I also started reading your book, and have highlighted many places in it that stuck out to me. Thank you for helping us better understand ourselves and others to help serve our community in a more effective way!


Thank you for taking time to teach us about the DISC Model of Human Behavior. I’ve become so interested in what we covered about the different personality tendencies, that I’ve been attempting to guess the personalities of those around me. Building systems is the greatest advice I have ever received. I have been putting intentionality into my daily routines and I’m excited to see how some of these work out! Thank you again for taking the time to talk with us. It made a difference in how I see other people and how I see myself.


“I very much appreciated your passion, enthusiasm, and positive energy in presenting this valuable information. Probably teaching this thousands of times, your way of interacting with us was still refreshing. With the significant research you have done on this subject, I was also impressed by the statistics you presented to make the information more real. Your examples were ‘spot-on’. When I listen to a speaker, my respect and admiration increase when I hear personal stories of how the speaker worked through the topic, applied it themselves, and acknowledged their successes and failures through this process. You accomplished this very well.”

“I first met Royce on the John Maxwell Team. Although I’d never had any real close contact with him, his council, input and Leadership perspective in the team have always been impactful. I had the opportunity of experiencing Royce conduct a coaching session as a teaching lesson and there was no doubt in my mind that he was the person I wanted to coach me. I decided to act on my intuition and signed up for a period of 1:1 coaching sessions with Royce. I could not have made a better decision. Royce’s coaching style has allowed me to get curious about me, make imperative business decisions, keep the promises I made to myself and become a lot more confident and comfortable about building my own training and coaching practice. He provides a non threatening and non judgemental environment that really helped me to go deeper than surface level and he has an incredible gift of helping you to become more aware about your strengths and how to build on them. Royce is an expert in marketing and branding which is a much needed quality for any client trying to improve their business. He’s genuine, authentic and brings a high level of integrity to the coaching session. I highly recommend Royce if you are serious about identifying your dream and actualising it!  Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity”
Travel & Tourism Advisor | Human Development Practitioner


“Royce is a unique human being. Although he is endowed with a wide array of abilities such as being an accomplished musician/songwriter, an experienced and successful entrepreneur, world-class encourager and life coach, and visionary leader, he comports himself with a steadfast humility. What it is that precisely renders Royce worthy of both the utmost respect and an openness in heart and mind as to what he offers is his overall life posture as one who leads via employing high-level competency, empathy, dignity, mercy, and a keen ability to listen. When one embodies a coalescence of considerable gifting with these attributes you have a capable leader in all of life’s dimensions – relationally (husband, father, friend, neighbor), professionally, and societally. This is Mr. Royce White! He would be the first to tell you that all of this is due to the love and generosity manifesting in the work of God in, on, and through him in accordance with his reliance upon Jesus Christ as the living Son of God. Royce is a Christian in the true sense that he follows Jesus Christ as the living person He is and tries his best to, in all dimensions of living, act like the One he follows. That is the essence of what it is to be a Christian! Royce White is as exemplary a man of faith and integrity as I have ever known in my life and it is a privilege to be associated with and connected to such an august and talented man who, whenever you encounter him, makes you feel as if you are the most important person in that space. That is leadership!”

About us

Hi—I'm Royce White, Founder and CEO of The Caris Group. I am also the author of the book Positive Accountability—a book that will help 80% of us get started to succeeding at any topic, and the brand new book, "Who's Killing Your Church?", how to help Dominant pastors learn to understand themselves and others and make a paradigm shift to lead properly. After years in corporate America and starting eight businesses, I turned my attention to leadership and personal growth through the John Maxwell Team. That's when I discovered a truth in the trade—most people were being motivated to find accomplishment, but nobody was showing anyone true methodologies and procedures to continually accomplish—without having to be motivated. Most people ended up being motivated for a couple weeks and then started the long struggle down to failure. That's because—as author Susan Fowler says in her landmark book 'Why Motivating People Doesn't Work'—you can't motivate people—they're already motivated—you need to learn what that motivation is.” Plus, depending on what your personality style is, it can be harder to stay on target—sometimes much harder. So when you mix correct leadership practices, personal growth skills, your own personality, and positive accountability, you have the true formula for success in everything—family, career, spiritual, intellectual, physical, financial, and social—the seven basic spheres of life. Want to make a serious change in your organization? Start with your people. Let our people help your people. That's what we do, all day long.


Is Failing Forward The Real Key To Success?

As they stagger around the ring at the end of the 15th and final round of the fight scene in the first Rocky movie (1976), bodies glistening in sweat, blood, and bruises, physically beyond exhausted, grasping on to each other so as not to fall, Apollo Creed blurts out as if to comfort himself, “Ain’t […]
