a separate calendar for the members to post their events to. Until
then, please use the forum to let everyone know what you are doing,
and what events you are holding.
I also want to remind everyone who wants to bring more attention

The first 3 people to create and submit a lens to the group will
get a featured spot on the group lens!
I would also like to encourage everyone to use the forum if you
are looking for anything special, like a job, a joint venture,
an employee, some services. That is what the forum is for!
Don't hesitate to contact me through the forum with any questions
To Your Success!

By Herb Rubenstein
In order to be a better leader, one needs to become familiar with examples of leadership behaviors that have proven successful over time. Within each category and specific behavioral item listed in this chapter, there is great room for individual variations and creativity. However, there is little room for the leader of a law firm, a leader of legal organizations, a leader of clients, or an advocate for a client to ignore the items listed belowand still achieve passing marks in leadership. There are approximately sixty behaviors that researchers believe constitute good leadership practices

Sixth P of Success: Profitability
Keys for Courageous Leadership in Family
First Tool: Happiness
A wealth of happiness is an important tool that will direct the flow of one's ability to sustain profitability. Profitability is measured in many states of wealth beyond the obvious, which is currency. Even the word currency connotes a flow and movement of energy. Sharing profitability begets more profitability, and that is why profitability is so closely linked with philanthropy. Philanthropy ensures the flow of profitability and vitalizes society with value and a better state of being. Happiness generates the human spirit to forge ahead, as well as, appreciate the current results of solid productivity that is based on serving others.
When we begin to think about profitability as a form of wealth, we can better understand how happiness would help us to improve our life's wealth, and, in turn, help us to contribute our best to society. As we emerge as leaders who have nourished our lives with passion, purpose, and power, we grow and become better leaders. Therein, we are in better shape to contribute ourselves to others through a well-rounded plan that conveys our productivity, and results in successful profitability. Let's explore profitability, and again, how happiness can be a vital tool to enhancing our ability to achieve this level of success in society.
