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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Storybook disguised as business sense OK from a top-down motivational perspective. Kudos to the author for making it short. Normally short books are content heavy, but this was (surprisingly) a storybook format. In terms of concrete suggestions and results to get employees engaged, look elsewhere. Reading this book is like having someone tell you to walk to Kansas. Why? Because Kansas is great! Everyone wants to go to Kansas! But this person won't tell you where Kansas is, how you know you've got there, and whether you'll ever really get there given your (limited) time and resources. It's a short and very easy read, but also an hour of my time I'll never get back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You Get What You Fished For Really great quick read. I sat down one evening feeling the need to change my perspective a little at the work place and this was inspirational in many ways. Gae me some motivation to reflect on myself and my workplace and make a simple change. Quick read, great tools. It wasn't burdensome and was an actively engaging book for the hour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good workplace recommendation. Thanks boss. Fish is written as a personal parable much in the fashion of Ishmael, making the structure and information much easier to digest and relate to. A well chosen story path displaying many traits, doubts, and questions, which readers can see themselves in. Not epiphanic, but still uplifting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One for the team! This is one for everyone...not just the management or owners. Our staff became fish fans and took the message throughout the office every day. Not just a great read, but a practical, inspiring and real life message for the whole team.
