In this best-selling classic, a manager is charged with turning an unenthusiastic, unhelpful department into an effective team. Across the street from her office is Seattle’s Pike Place Fish Market, world famous and wildly successful thanks to its joyful atmosphere and attentive customer service.

By applying simple lessons from the fishmongers—Play, Make Their Day, Be There, Choose Your Attitude—the manager ignites an astonishing transformation in her team. Managers everywhere can use these practices, called The FISH! Philosophy, to increase engagement, strengthen teamwork and trust, reduce burnout, boost motivation and improve retention.

The wisdom of FISH! is easy to grasp and instantly applicable to any individual or organization. The book, based on a bestselling ChartHouse Learning training video, has sold more than 6 million copies and inspired people and companies around the world such as Southwest Airlines, Sprint, and Nordstrom.

No matter where you work, FISH! is about rediscovering the amazing power inside each of us to make a positive difference wherever we are in life.

Nearly everyone wants to make a positive impact, yet polls show the vast majority of people around the world are NOT engaged in their work. That is a tragedy, for life is too precious to spend so much of it wishing you were someplace else.

Organizations around the world use its practical lessons to improve customer service, build trust and teamwork, strengthen leadership, and increase employee satisfaction. Many people also take these lessons home to strengthen relationships with family and friends
