 +===== Lifebushido Triangle Vision =====
 +\\  Lifebushido Triangle was started in early 2008 as a test of a radical idea to organize new hires and Ishidos, which is what we call people working at LIfebushido. The idea of the Lifebushido Triangle is a huge vision within our motto of “Anything is Possible.” We hope to have hundreds of Lifebushido Triangles over the coming years, which will help you, help Lifebushido,​ help others in your triangle, and in ways hard to describe, helps society/​community. Whether you have been with Lifebushido for over 1,000 days or have just started, please give it a shot. Thanks - Steve Kantor (believe me this concept is big and important for growth of company and your growth within company).\\ **The Idea** \\ 
 +
 +   
 +  * Ishidos group into a Lifebushido Triangle of three or four people to help each other.
 +   
 +  * Benefits: Networking, support, information,​ find more work, touch base, encouragement,​ insight, direction, someone to contact.
 +   
 +  * Triangles seek to help each other out with Lifebushido as new hires and fellow Ishidos and with life by sharing ideas and experiences in a safe, confidential,​ and affirming group.
 +   
 +  * Triangles are a support group for new hires, offering insight into Lifebushido;​ advice, feedback and assistance on first tasks; and a shared human voice of other new hires.
 +   
 +  * Triangles communicate via email, phone calls, IM, video chat, wiki pages, Twitter, and other tools.
 +   
 +  * Triangles communicate at least once a week, preferably with a scheduled 30 minute phone call or chat session.
 +   
 +  * Triangles are likely to form strong bonds which will help people with their work at Lifebushido,​ getting all the hours that they want to work, getting work involving their unique talents, and improving various aspects of their overall life.
 +   
 +  * If someone leaves a Triangle, Lifebushido will help find a replacement.
 +   
 +  * A Lifebushido Forum is created by three Triangles connecting together to create a Forum of nine people. ​
