4 Concepts of the FISH! Philosophy • Play …is synonymous with work. It’s about having fun, enjoying yourself, being spontaneous and creative. Life is too short to spend it frowning… and FISH! brings a smile to your face!
4 Concepts of the FISH! Philosophy • Make their day …It’s about doing something special for your customers and co-workers. When you make someone’s day, you have given them a special gift they won’t soon forget. It feels good to give it.
4 Concepts of the FISH! Philosophy • Be there …It’s about being totally focused on the moments and on the person or task with which you are engaged. When we are fully present with our customers and with each other, we are listening deeply and important opportunities do not escape us.
4 Concepts of the FISH! Philosophy • Choose your attitude …It’s about accepting full responsibility for all of our choices, even our attitude at work. A positive attitude is a decision we make, moment to moment.
