Go Fish!

Using the “Fish” Philosophy to Build Staff Morale and Address Today’s Most Pressing Work Issues.

catch the energy
Catch the Energy
  • People are afraid of the future, of the unknown. If a man faces up to it, and takes the dare of the future, he can have some control over his destiny. That’s an exciting idea to me, better than waiting with everybody else to see what’s going to happen.

---John Glenn

love what you do
“Fish!” is based on Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, WA..

Over 75% of adult wake time is spent doing work-related activities

People ought to enjoy work and be energized by it.

“Fish!” motivates employees.

People like to work in an environment that is fun, energizing, and where they can make a difference.

The “Fish!” philosophy benefits every employee because it prevents burnout and keeps him/her excited about what he/she does.

Love What You Do
  • “Fish!” is a parable , an invented story about finding the deep source of energy, creativity, and passion that exists inside each of us by learning to love what we do, even if at the moment we may not be doing exactly what we love.
