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.

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.

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.

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!

Somewhat Useful

Quick and easy readlisten with some helpful ideas. Pretty surface level stuff however. We used it as a team learning tool and it seemed useful in that setting.

Few principals that are good, but reality is different

Nice helpful paradigms, but there are lots of extra fillers and story expansions that are unnecessary and actually would never happen in real life.
It is nice but could have been shortened to two pages.
