5.0 out of 5 stars Integrating Fish and optimizing the workplace
The Fish philosophy isn't new but the unique context and delightful presentation makes it effective. I got a lot out of this book because I saw how the concept is integrated into organizations. We have found that the best companion for the Fish philosophy is to train employees in Optimal Thinking. Optimal Thinking is the simple, realistic mental resource to empower...

1.0 out of 5 stars Fish Tales
I ordered 3 copies of this book through amazon.ca from BluCloud Books and a month later have not received the order yet. This is unacceptable service. I am wondering if they are a reputable firm.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Real" It In, June 18 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Fish! Tales: Real-Life Stories to Help You Transform Your Workplace and Your Life (Hardcover)
I enjoyed reading Fish, but Fish Tales is even better because it has real world success stories. While the original Fish! seemed like a business theory, Fish! Tales shows how several companies actually benefited from implementing these ideas instead of just reading about them. Fish! Tales enhances the credibility of the original book. Rat Race Relaxer: Your Potential & The Maze of Life by JoAnna Carey is another great book for companies to share with employees because it offers entertaining stories and goal oriented advice about improving your workplace and your life.

This review is from: Fish! Tales: Real-Life Stories to Help You Transform Your Workplace and Your Life (Hardcover)
Things are going swimmingly in Fish! land. In the latest volume, Fish! Tales, authors Stephen C. Lundin, John Christensen, Harry Paul and Philip Strand build on the successful training program that evolved from their first Fish book. Tales shows how four companies - a long-distance call center; a hospital neural-renal unit, a car dealership and a roofing company - have applied Fish! theories effectively. They also provide short examples from other companies to show how well the Fish! function. The four main principles are familiar by now - keep the work fun, seek to serve others, stay focused on your customers and have an enthusiastic attitude - but the examples in the book bring them alive. Along the way, the authors heavily sell their Fish! courses and merchandise - that's just good salesmanship - but the real catch of the day is the final how-to section, showing ways to apply these principles in any organization. The lively writing style helps keep you hooked. We suggest that if you haven't yet caught any Fish!, start with this one. Its cheery, accessible methods should lure you in, hook, line and sinker.

While the message is a good one, it nearly gets lost in this very poorly written book.

This review is from: Fish! Tales: Real-Life Stories to Help You Transform Your Workplace and Your Life (Hardcover)
This book really gives the picture of how "Empoyees" can make a difference, given the chance! I suggest ALL managers ans supervisors read this and apply it. Making employees feel they are part of the solution and not the problem will change their whole attitude about themsleves and their company.
