Five years ago, we learned about and adopted into our corporate culture, the FISH! Philosophy. If you’re not familiar with the Philosophy created at the world-famous Pike Place Fish Market, the four main principles are: Play, Make Their Day, Be There and Choose Your Attitude.
You may be saying to yourself, that a company’s culture should come from within rather than be adopted by some outside entity. I agree. But, what do you do when your company’s culture goes stale or just needs some livening up? Do what we did: watch a video of some guys throwing fish and let it inspire you.
One of the best things about FISH! is not the manufactured program put together by Charthouse Learning – it’s the message behind the Philosophy – heck, the principles need little explanation.
Some man-on-the-street YouTube videos even remind us that those fishmongers at Pike’s aren’t the FISH! Philosophy – they have their own story to tell, but they don’t discount the principles. Basically, it’s up to you to transform yourself from “ordinary” to “great.”
