Coaching & Workshop Testimonials

 

The PVSD is an organization that is striving to become a High Performing School Division.... one of the characteristics of a High Performing Organization is that of Lived Interdependency. “ my work is for you and your work is for me” The Fish Philosophy encourages team members to Be There for each other. Through laughter and fun we learn to appreciate each other as people not just co-workers. Relationships that are built on trust result in better performance... “ if you have high trust then you will have high productivity”.. FISH helps build trust.

I attended the “Fish Philosophy” workshop just prior to Christmas vacation along with School Based Administrators, Central Office Staff and fellow Board Members. I was truly a remarkable experience. During the day we learned, we laughed, and became a better team because of it. The four philosophies that fish teaches during this one day are easy to remember and relevant to all aspects of life. The one philosophy that I continually remind myself of is “Be There”. In our busy world of home, work, and community responsibilities it is difficult to concentrate on the task at hand when you are being pulled in so many directions. That constant reminder has helped over and over. I encourage everyone to try “Fish” you will change the way you work and play because of it.

Just a quick note to let you know that I found yesterday to be very valuable experience. Our table (Seahorse) enjoyed the discussions and really get what you are talking about. I have been in Seattle and have experienced the Pike Place Fish Market and it really stood out to me at that time. It was something to see. Presenting to educators can be a tough job sometimes but I think you handled it remarkably. Thank you for spending your time with us and for giving us a sense of your wonderful spirit. Cheers! Have a great holiday season.
