Overview

¿Tiene algo que ofrecer un mercado callejero a una multinacional con problemas? Mary Jane, una ejecutiva de esa empresa, descubrirá que sí, y mucho. El departamento en que ella trabaja es temido y odiado por todos los demás empleados de la empresa. ¿Por qué? Porque en él todo se atasca y se retrasa. Además, el personal que trabaja ahí parece perpetuamente malhumorado o desinteresado en hacer bien su tarea.

Sin embargo, Lonnie el pescadero o cualquiera de los demás vendedores no sólo parece que estén pasándoselo bien, sino que, además, los clientes están encantados y es la pescadería que más vende. Siguiendo los consejos de Lonnie, Mary Jane logrará infundir motivación a su departamento y logrará que deje de ser el "basurero tóxico", como lo calificaban el resto de compañeros.

La historia de Fish! y los principios en ella expuestos muestran cómo renovar el interés de los empleados que realizan funciones administrativas, de tipo logístico y de apoyo a los departamentos "estrella" de la empresa. Los autores conocen y aplican la profunda necesidad que todos tenemos de sentir que lo que hacemos importa, que contribuye al éxito de la empresa y al deseo de disfrutar de nuestro trabajo.

Este libro va a ser una gran ayuda para quien desee redefinir cómo siente y opina acerca de su trabajo; porque gracias a estos consejos descubrirá que puede encontrar satisfacción y diversión en su vida laboral cotidiana.

Read an Excerpt

Fish!
By Stephen C. Lundin Ediciones Urano

ISBN: 9788495787477


Chapter One Fish! is an incredible story that John Christensen first caught on film. He and his company, ChartHouse, produced an amazing video on the world famous Pike Place Fish market in Seattle. I have been showing this video at every one of my seminars to illustrate what happens when you create Gung Ho! employees - you ignite your workforce and create Raving Fans.

Now Stephen Lundin, and long-term colleague of mine Harry Paul, have teamed up with John to bring the Fish! story to print. In whatever media it appears, it's a fabulous love story. As the book suggests, "When we choose to love the work we do, we can catch our limit of happiness, meaning, and fulfillment every day."

How important is that? Incredibly important, especially when you consider that people spend about 75 percent of their adult wake time doing work-related activities - getting ready for work, traveling to work, working, contemplating work, and decompressing after work. If we spend that much time in that part of our lives, we ought to enjoy it and be energized by it. And yet, too many people are trading time on the job to satisfy needs elsewhere; "Thank God It's Friday" is still a way of life for many people.

Those days can stop now - if you read Fish!, share it with everyone with whom you work, and implement the four secrets and suggestedstrategies that Lundin, Paul, and Christensen give you. I guarantee that every manager will benefit from Fish!, because it will not only increase employee retention, it will motivate people to take pride in what they do. People like to work in an environment that is fun, energizing, and where they can make a difference. The Fish! philosophy will also benefit every employee, because it prevents burnout and will keep you excited about what you do.

As you can tell, I'm excited about Fish! I think this is a marvelous book. The story of the world famous Pike Place Fish market is fantastic. But this book is not just about selling fish; it's a love story that can happen in your organization, too.

    It works

    Whe I originally read this book I did not have an open mind, beeing in sales and now having 16 employees I needed to get them motivated and stay motivated, I pulled it off the shelve and read it again and have shared it with my staff, most people responded very positively, while others just gave me lip service, now I know who the employees are thet I will fight to keep.

    A bunch of mumbo jumbo

    This book is a joke. I hate managers who think that reading us a stupid little story about a fish place can change our 'attitudes' about work. Let's face it and get real: work sucks and always will. I'd rather be on a million dollar yacht like J.Lo.
