Even a powerful idea like The FISH! Philosophy needs regular attention. FISH! Culture Training offers expanded resources to help you keep the energy of FISH! alive.
The FISH! Culture Facilitator’s Guide includes scripts and videos for leading 11 essential “conversations”, starting with a FISH! kickoff. In the 10 followup sessions, the team watches a short video that explores one aspect of The FISH! Philosophy. Prompted by questions in the guide, the team discusses how to apply FISH! in a way that works best for them. The guide also outlines activities that help the team understand and apply each practice. These conversations give everyone a chance to contribute, increasing a sense of personal ownership.
