FISH! A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Results
With all the rightsizing, downsizing, lay-offs, cut backs, reduced budgets, shrinking markets, people quitting, people quitting and staying, it's no wonder that more than 71% of today's employees are not fully engaged at work. Even though it's been around for several years, FISH! has as much relevancy today as it did back then, especially in today's tough and uncertain economic times. By using the four parts of the FISH! philosophy you will learn to:
- Choose Your Attitude: Decide to bring more enthusiasm to work.
- Play: Discover ways to have more fun and instill more energy at work.
- Be There: Understanding and living the mission of the organization.
- Make Everyone's Day: Include everyone in the energy and fun.
Motivating People during Difficult Times
Has your company's bottom line taken serious hit because of today's lousy economic climate? Have you tried to fix the situation by undergoing a round or two of layoffs, only to see your productivity plummet because of reduced morale and your better performing employees jumping ship to other companies? If so, would you like to turn your situation around instantly - as in overnight?
If you think something like this is impossible, think again. Based on his book "Instant Turnaround!", Harry will show you how to survive and actually thrive during difficult times. Getting employees excited about coming to work and working hard requires that managers at all levels embrace change.
