Fish!: A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Results by Stephen C. LundinHeres another management parable that draws its lesson from an unlikely source--this time its the fun-loving fishmongers at Seattles Pike Place Market. In Fish! the heroine, Mary Jane Ramirez, recently widowed and mother of two, is asked to engineer a turnaround of her companys troubled operations department, a group that authors Stephen Lundin, Harry Paul, and John Christensen describe as a toxic energy dump. Most reasonable heads would cut their losses and move on. Why bother with this bunch of losers? But the authors dont make it so easy for Mary Jane. Instead, shes left to sort out this mess with the help of head fishmonger Lonnie. Based on a bestselling corporate education video, Fish! aims to help employees find their way to a fun and happy workplace. While some may find the story line and prescriptions--such as Choose Your Attitude, Make Their Day, and Be Present--downright corny, others will find a good dose of worthwhile motivational management techniques. If you loved Who Moved My Cheese? then youll find much to like here. And dont worry about Mary Jane and kids. Fish! has a happy ending for everyone. --Harry C. Edwards
