About Bento C. Leal III
Bento is a certified relationship skills trainer. He has been fascinated by human relationships for decades, and nothing gets him more inspired than when he sees people experience breakthroughs in their personal lives and with the people they love and care about.
From 2005 to 2020, Bento taught communication and relationship skills as an authorized instructor of several curricula for a statewide non-profit organization in California. He taught thousands of couples and singles in classroom-type settings in various venues throughout the state, including faith-based organizations, family resource centers, schools, county jails, and federal prison. Since he retired from that organization, he has continued teaching audiences and writing more books on the subject.
“I’m always thrilled when class participants have the big ‘aha’ moments when they realize the way they listen to others could be greatly improved, or how argumentative or judgmental their communication style has been, and then learn and practice the skills to transform themselves and the way they communicate,” he says, “That really inspires me. And then they come back later and tell me their lives have changed for the better. Nothing makes me happier. That fuels my passion and gives me the power and energy to keep doing this important work.”
Along the way, Bento has developed his own communication and relationship skills workshop - Enrich Your Relationships - and he has followed this up with an illuminating book titled 4 Essential Keys to Effective Communication in Love, Life, Work—Anywhere!
“What I wanted to do with this book was trim down what I have learned to what I believe are the core essentials, the key skills every person can use to bolster themselves and their relationships—their marriage, their relationship with their child, with co-workers, with anyone.”
When he isn’t writing and teaching, Bento likes nothing more than enjoying time with his family and the stunning California surroundings.

Band of Angels is a stunning and beautifully crafted collection of poetry and prose written by the author which examines both faith and inspiration. It asks questions of purpose and destiny of us all while stretching our imagination to behold the beauty that surrounds us.
It looks deep into our souls and studies the workings of the mind and heart, the hopes and dreams we all share, for this life and the next. It is about how even small things can have deep meaning and resonance and also shows us how a wonderful, fulfilling life for oneself and for the world is easily within our grasp.
Bento has been writing poems for more than a decade and through works such as ‘Where is God?’, ‘Life’s Journey’ and ‘Wishing Well’ you can get a true feel for his love of God and his deeply spiritual outlook on life.
The works in Band of Angels can be read as one, or individually, when you are feeling down and could do with some motivation. Above all, they will leave you with an immense feeling of satisfaction and perhaps a better understanding of the world around us and God’s plan for it.
