Human Connection: How the "L" Do We Do That? Kindle Edition
Our world is growing more disconnected every day.
Surrounded by virtual friends and follower counts…
…how do you develop meaningful connections?
In his book Human Connection: How the “L” Do We Do That?, Arthur F. Coombs III offers easy tools and memorable analogies to help you do just that. By taking you through five simple “Ls”, he’ll teach you to navigate a busy, techno-centric world.
You will learn to:
◆ Laugh in the best and worst of times
◆ Learn as if you will live forever
◆ Lead to unlock the potential in others
◆ Love and feel the very essence of connection
◆ Live Large with the beauty of balance
We rely on the relationships we build with others—it’s the one aspect of our lives that technology cannot replace. With leadership guru Art Coombs’ simple formula, you can foster those relationships into deeper connections.
Begin today, take charge, and create a powerful impact on those you love with Human Connection.
Much like Grandpa used to, Art has the unique ability to tell a story that's dear to him while teaching you how to be an effective leader. His willingness to let his guard down and share his life with the reader is truly unique and doesn't leave for many a dry eye.
--Rick DeGolia, Executive Chairman at Intellipark
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is chock-full of inspiring nuggets. Art has a winner here.
--Julie Lyle, Advisor, Investor DemandJump
Art is a masterful storyteller who takes you gently by the hand and, with humor and charm, guides you through the common pitfalls of being human, then poignantly shows you how connecting with others is key to living a more abundant life.
--Tanaquil Arduin, Manager, Netherlands Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations

In a world seemingly bent on dividing and disconnecting us, how refreshing it is to immerse one's self in the importance of deep, genuine connection. Coombs has done it again--weaving a rich tapestry of personal narrative, historical accounts, and just plain common sense to drive home the importance of human connection and how to create it in our lives, at home, and at work. I will be reading and recommending this book again and again!

This is not that kind of book.
However, the advice is sound. The idea of incorporating 5 "L's" into different aspects of your life (family, leadership, etc.) is thoroughly discussed. He uses personal stories to get his point across and even throws in a few metrics and a little data to add credibility. It is a super easy airplane or beach day read, but lacks a little of the polish you would expect from this type of book - especially if you have read several others in this genre.
Still, if you are struggling with making connections, especially with difficult people, it offers valuable insights on how to build those relationships in practical ways. The personal inventory section was especially insightful and telling about Coombs as a person, but also as an exercise to gain personal insight into why you do the things you do.
I found “Human Connection” to be practical and down to earth. Mr. Coombs suggestions were easy enough for all to achieve, and would help not only us, but those around us, to obtain objectives that would positively affect all our lives. Learning to evaluate our goals, both short and long term, by taking corrective action in our connecting and involvement with others is attained by being more aware of everyone’s perspectives. You’ll learn how to gain more in life from ALL points of view by his entertaining, anecdotal and stimulating ideas.
“Human Connection” resonates with a multitude of advice, examples and guidance on how to eliminate selfishness, fear, egotism and prejudice. We are channeled to recognize our own worth and the depth of influence we have on others. We ultimately come to the conclusion we have much to gain through changing our way of thinking, letting others learn from ‘our’ failures and victories, and engaging those around us to the benefit of all.
Sharing with love is a talent that is selflessly apportioned to everyone who reads this book. You’ll come away refreshed and self-confident of your own abilities to inspire others, as well as being enlightened yourself. Arthur Coombs has hit the nail on the head on how to be everyone’s best friend! I certainly wish he was mine.
