WHAT IS FISH!
The FISH! Philosophy® emerged in 1998 from the film, FISH! Catch the Energy,
Release the Potential, produced by John Christensen — current CEO aka:
Playground Director at ChartHouse Learning — this film is about the
Seattle's world-famous Pike Place Fish Market. What John captured and
translated into film was that even in a workplace where fishmongers spent
stinky, grueling 12-hour shifts stocking, selling and packing fish, remarkable
results can occur when people accept the invitation to: 1) Be
There for their coworkers and customers; 2) Play; 3)
Make someone's day, and; 4) Choose their attitude about how
they show up for work. As a result, the FISH! film, now has now been translated
into 17 languages. Next came FISH! the book, currently translated into 34
languages. Other book titles include FISH! Sticks, FISH! Tales, FISH! For Life,
and recently, Schools of FISH!. Our newest products, FISH! Culture and
LeaderFISH! will help organizations take FISH! into a deeper level.
FISH! is a skill that provides the process, tools and language to generate the
skills necessary to design a workplace full of inspiration, creativity and
innovation. FISH! creates a common language. A language that will help improve
your culture by using four simple practices – Be There, Play, Make Their
Day and Choose Your Attitude™. FISH! is a wisdom that everyone can
embrace. It is an invitation that enables people to care about each other and
their commitments. FISH! is an ongoing journey. It is not a fad. It is a
practice and a skill that evolves over time creating a positive workplace and a
vibrant culture each time it is embraced.
