fish!…what you need to know

Are you ready to transform your organisation’s workplace culture? (Hint: The answer is YES!).  Today it’s no secret that more and more people appreciate the importance and value of working in a positive team culture.  The FISH! Workshop provides the opportunity for you to explore how to create a workplace culture that anyone would be envious of, whilst tapping into the strengths and passions of your people and having a bit of fun of course!

Based on four key practices, the FISH! Workshop is designed to provide you with easy to follow strategies that help your team feel valued and connected.  When these practices are integrated into your everyday attitude and behavior, the results truly are amazing!

Your organisation is undergoing change, you have a new team coming together, your team is starting a new project, your team is facing challenges or your team is under pressure for high performance.

i’m interested… so how does it work?

Before we dive into it, all participants will take an anonymous survey prior to the workshop to determine the initial ‘climate’ of the workplace.  This will give your facilitator an indication of what areas may be lacking within your organisation in line with the four FISH! practices.

Your team will then be taken through each of the key practices during the highly interactive workshop (how are your fish catching skills?), where they will learn several simple, but effective strategies to implement in the workplace.

We will then give you 6-8 weeks to implement all the exciting strategies you have learnt before asking your team to take the same climate survey from the beginning so we can compare the results and provide you with a comprehensive report on the impact the FISH! Workshop has had on your organisation.

Still want more?  We also offer ongoing support, coaching and implementation programmes to ensure you receive maximum benefit from the FISH! Workshop.

Wise Employment

Anita has designed a program that is truly inspirational and encourages you to start making small changes in your everyday life. The practical tools she has included in the program can easily be implemented on an individual, group and company basis. I have really valued the individual support Anita has provided me to tailor the program to my roles and workplace.

Therapy Focus

FISH! is a fantastic tool for people to better understand each other, their leadership style and culture and how this impacts on business.


I thought it was a great idea getting everybody together interacting and getting to know one another. I have worked with a fair amount of my colleagues and did not even know what they looked like and didn’t know much about them.

It is a beneficial investment for any company as far as getting to know more about who their fellow team mates are and how they function as part of the team.

A fishy! story

The origins of the FISH! Philosophy go back to 1997 when filmmaker John Christensen visited the world-famous Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, USA.

John was amazed at the crowds that were attracted by the joy, enthusiasm and energy of the fishmongers that worked there, and the large sales this created. He noticed that the actual work of selling fish was arduous and repetitive, however the fishmongers chose to bring joy to their job. And, the results were amazing!

Initially, John produced a documentary called FISH! which explored four simple practices that people could apply to be successful.

Today, these four practices are the FISH! Philosophy, globally-recognised for inspiring teams and developing positive cultures.
