Human Connection

How the “L” Do We Do That?

The sixth US President, John Quincy Adams, a man who knew a lot about effective leadership, maintained that the most successful people were those whose actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. These people were the ones who entered the fray, who left the sidelines, who threw themselves into life. They were the ones who forged a nation and achieved the impossible. They were the ones who truly connected to life, to others, and to themselves.

Today, the world needs human connection more than ever. It needs people who strive for the deepest relationships, not just surface recognition, who come at life with the enthusiasm, energy, and excitement that bind people together. These people have a powerful impact on all around them.

This book combines fresh perspectives, experience, information, and personal stories into a simple formula that will result in rich connections as you live, laugh, learn, love, and lead those who mean the most to you. It is my hope that by reading it you will begin today to live the authentic, abundant life that’s out there for you, as you build and shape the connections that will change everything.
