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 a time in my career where development is truly urgent, in my wildest imagination, there is no better way to have invested my time than with this leader of leaders.”

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 to Royce for the outstanding class. With his coaching skills and guiding hand he has inspired me to be more intentional with my goals. He helped me to poke and prod myself to figure out who I was and what I wanted to accomplish. Royce’s class 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 doesn’t simply throw out lessons; 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.

Royce does a brilliant job of clearly defining the true power of using Positive Accountability to get to your definition of success. He provides step-by-step instructions to take you from where you are to where you want to be. It’s a complete guide, from educating you on what positive accountability is and why it’s a critical component of your success, to full implementation and execution of this methodology. As the leader of an accountability program myself, I only wish I would have had Royce’s book as a resource back when I started the program. It’s a true gem – pick up a copy for you and your team today!

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

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 now that we are back and things are starting to get back to normal.  

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.

Thank you very much for spending so much of your time to help us understand each other better. I especially liked the way you emphasized that leadership is based on people. You went on to say how we should be sensitive to other people’s leadership styles and consider that as we interview them. This will not only help me as I interview people for our company, but it will also 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, no matter which leadership style we lean towards. 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!

Walking into the conference room, I was a little unsure of what to expect. However, 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 experiments 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.

First, thank you very much for the time spent to prepare and present your wisdom and expertise to us. As a fellow teacher, I know that even after teaching something many times, preparation is still in order to stay current, and keep your audience engaged.

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.

Your presentation style and way of explaining reminded me of things I need to continue to work on, but also confirmed that I am on the right track in some areas that I have been thoughtfully trying to improve. Thank you for your encouragement and validation. It will always be remembered.
