People watch FISH! once because its fun, but they watch it over and over because its message is fundamental to satisfying work and delighted customers. The key is in four choices that each of us is free to make every day: *Play, *Make Their Day, *Be There, and *Choose your Attitude. Many are using FISH! to increase retention, improve service, inspire passion, and boost performance. If these are goals in your workplace, then this is an excellent team building activity for your meeting.
