Sharing the FISH! philosophy will help Corporate Challenge Events bring its vision of widespread positive team cultures to reality, according to corporate training manager Anita Kropacsy.
Corporate Challenge Events has recently become an accredited training provider of FISH! in Australia and New Zealand.
“About 18 months ago, we reset our vision as a company,” said Ms Kropacsy.
“Through a process we went through, we discovered our staff were inspired by working within a great team culture and empowered by delivering services that spread this into other organisations.
“Through this process, I asked myself, ‘how did our culture originate in the first place’.”
Although reluctant to attribute a positive culture to one single factor, Ms Kropacsy highlighted that the company embracing the FISH! philosophy was a major contributor.
“One very important factor that I kept coming back to, was a philosophy that our Managing Director has lived for many years and a philosophy he has shared with all of us,” she said.
“We have all embraced it and we live it and breathe it in our workplace every day.”
The philosophy is called FISH! - globally recognised today for inspiring teams and developing positive business cultures.
It is based on a documentary that filmmaker John Christensen created on the world-famous Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, United States.
John was amazed at the crowds that were attracted by the joy, enthusiasm and energy of the fishmongers that worked there, and subsequently the large sales this created.
The documentary he produced was called FISH! and explored four simple practices that people could apply to be successful. These four practices are the FISH! philosophy.
Ms Kropacsy recounts a ‘light bulb’ moment staff at Corporate Challenge Events had to commence their journey to become a FISH! accredited training provider.
“We thought ‘well, our vision is to create positive team cultures through the services we deliver in team building, corporate training and events planning, why don’t we actually share the philosophy that underpins our own culture’,” she said.
“So, we made enquiries, had meetings, undertook training and today we are an accredited training provider of FISH! – one of very few training providers to have this accreditation in Australia and New Zealand.”
Today research shows that more and more people appreciate the importance and value of working in a positive team culture.
In a two or four-hour workshop, FISH! provides an opportunity for organisations to explore how to create a great culture whilst tapping into the strengths and passions of their people.
FISH! workshops with Corporate Challenge Events can be adapted to team building, sales, customer service, change management, workplace culture, staff retention, relationship building, self-management, managing staff and schools.
Corporate Challenge Events is an accredited training provider of FISH! and specialist in corporate training, team building and corporate events planning from Perth to Sydney in Australia and Auckland in New Zealand.
