To new manager Mary Jane Ramirez, the challenge of bringing life back to her unenthusiastic and unmotivated team seems impossible, until she discovers an incredibly successful workplace down the street where the employees are so alive and passionate that people stop just to watch them work!

FISH! is the remarkable story of what happens when Mary Jane seeks the help of these unlikely business "experts" and learns their secret: four simple practices that, when applied daily, help anyone to be more energized, effective, and fulfilled.

An excellent book! I read this book years ago as a request for all employees at the salon I was working at. This short but powerful story of the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, WA has left a lasting impression on my life. I highly recommend this book!
