FISH! Philosophy, teamwork, enthusiasm and positive attitudes

We spend most of our adult lives—100,000 hours or more—at work. That time is precious. It’s a tragedy if we aren’t happy and energized. It’s a loss for our organizations too.

The FISH! Philosophy is a proven way to find joy and energy in our work. When a team lives these four simple practices, it builds trust, teamwork, appreciation and accountability—the foundation every team needs to excel.

Our FISH! training tools include eLearning, workshops and events, and video learning programs. We also offer FISH! programs and workshops for K-12 schools.

The FISH! Philosophy Helps Organizations Improve:


Most people are not engaged in their work. The FISH! Philosophy empowers people to bring all of their talents to work.



Customers love being served by people who love their work. FISH! helps “wow” customers by offering distinctive, authentic service.



The key to great teams is how they treat each other. The FISH! Philosophy builds trust with the teammates who need you.



Positive workplaces retain and attract great staff. The FISH! Philosophy builds a culture Millennials (and all generations) love.



Organizations need expanded thinking. The FISH! Philosophy creates a culture where innovative ideas flourish.


What is The FISH! Philosophy?

Filmmaker John Christensen was in Seattle when he discovered a business that pulsed with enthusiasm and commitment. It was the World Famous Pike Place Fish Market, where large crowds come to watch the fishmongers work—and buy lots of fish.

“Every company could benefit from that kind of passion,” John thought. So he made a film about the fishmongers. It’s called FISH! and it explores four simple practices anyone can use to be successful. These practices, known as The FISH! Philosophy, are the foundation of our training solutions.
