Involving a FISH! Philosophy session in your next event is a remarkable way to boost morale and improve results. Every session engages both the heart and mind of attendees and follows four guiding principles: Play, Make Their Day, Be There and Choose your Attitude.
The fishmongers of Pike Place Fish Market are known around the world for throwing and catching large slippery fish, to the delight of their customers.  Our work days are full of opportunities for making the day of our customers and our fellow team members; a small kindness or a word of support during difficult times. We can always choose to harness the power of fun to lighten the atmosphere and create an environment that nurtures innovation  Stephen will explore these FISH principles and more:
–        How advanced team members interact by not just being physically present, but by being wholeheartedly present.
–        How members of advanced teams understand and discuss the notion that each member has the power to choose his or her attitude, and become responsible for that choice.
We have all heard that curiosity killed a cat. Have you ever seen a cat killed by curiosity? How often do you think it actually happens? By dogs and trucks, yes… but curiosity? Stephen believes sayings like this one are born out of fear, not experience. He believes the origin of the statement, “curiosity killed a cat” is to create fear in others, to prevent change and all sorts of other weird and discomforting new ideas.
–        What if curiosity was in fact the key to creativity?
–         The Nine Lives of Innovation provides a basic structure and ingredients to encourage curiosity and promote innovation.
We all sell something for a living — whether it’s a brand, a vision, an education, a direction, or a service. We might even be selling a set of numbers to a board meeting, learning to a student, or cereal to an infant. This eye-opening parable is about harnessing natural energy — yours and that of those around you — in order to take your sales, and your satisfaction to the next level of success. Top Performer is a simple set of ideas and language found in the conversation of professional street performers.  Stephen explores:
–        This language points to a style of engagement
–        What we can learn from performers, recognize the influence they have in generating positive experiences, or performances, for their customer and apply to our organisation.
