A powerful parable that will help you see your life and work in a new way.

It's a rainy day in Seattle, and on the third floor of First Guarantee Financial, people have stopped believing they can make a difference. To new manager Mary Jane Ramirez, the challenge of bringing life back to her unenthusiastic and unmotivated team seems impossible, until she discovers an incredibly successful workplace down the street where the employees are so alive and passionate that people stop just to watch them work!

FISH! is the remarkable story of what happens when Mary Jane seeks the help of these unlikely business "experts" and learns their secret: Four simple practices that, when applied daily, help anyone to be more energized, effective, and fulfilled.

Filled with inspiration and timeless wisdom that will resonate with anyone in any field or career level, it's easy to see why FISH! is one of the most popular business parables of all time. People in organizations around the world use its practical lessons to improve customer service, build trust and teamwork, bolster leadership, and increase employee satisfaction. They also use the lessons to strengthen personal relationships, fulfill lifelong dreams, and realize their ambitions.

FISH! will help you discover the amazing power that is already inside you to make a positive difference-wherever you are in life.

Based on a best-selling ChartHouse training video which has been adopted by corporations including Southwest Airlines, Sprint, and Nordstrom.

GREAT PERSPECTIVE

So many of us forget the level of control we have over our attitude and how that in turn impacts how we are perceived and how we ourselves perceive others, which in turn greatly impacts our overall happiness.

So glad I listened to this!

A mentor suggested the book. I wanted to finish it quickly and with my hectic life, I really didn't have time to read...but I could listen. I remembered that Amazon had suggested this app to me before because I am an avid Amazon buyer. I am glad I chose this for my first "read". The narrator had a great voice. I liked how she made her voice deeper to indicate men or others voices. The storyline reminded me of my own work environment and how my current leadership turned our department around. In less than 3 years we went from "ugh them" to "awww them". We have what we call Laughter Hour. When we don't have it, the other departments around us ask us what's going on. We have seen tremendous revenue growth. And as I said, I see a lot of the concepts from this recording in our team. I will certainly recommend that we all listen to this to look for areas to grow more. Thanks Audible for teaching us how to Fish!

Amazing!

I was honestly shocked by this book. I thought that I would dread having someone read me a book, but I loved it! I was expecting a monotoned reader, but I received an engaged reader who had many different tones. Along with multiple readers. I read the first 20 pages of the book and i got 10 times more out of her reading it to me than reading it myself.
