Hingham Public Schools Find Fun at Work with FISH!®

Think about your current job. Is it fun? Do you think there is a way to make it fun? Our Workshop to Go: Find the Fun at Work with FISH!® uses four concepts to help schools create a workplace culture of creativity, innovation, and fun.

On January 24, 2017, the school nutrition staff of Hingham Public Schools brought the Workshop to Go: Find the Fun at Work with FISH!® to liven up their workplace!

FISH!® uses four concepts including:

  1. Be There: Be physically and mentally present when assisting, managing, or helping another person. It is important to actively listen to understand, and act based on awareness.
  2. Play: Be curious, feel free to innovate, and free to be yourself, all while creating an environment where kids want to be and people want to work.
  3. Make Their Day: Bring recognition and value to all your employees.
  4. Choose Your Attitude: Attitude is everything. When a conscious choice is made to improve one’s attitude, it can have a positive impact on the workplace.

After viewing the FISH!® video, a few activities were offered to engage the nutrition staff of Hingham Public Schools:

  • Show importance of being there, tell a story to your partner that is not there
  • “Playstorm” crazy ideas that could make your workplace better
  • Identify the “Stinky Fish” in your workplace
  • “Let’s make a Day” by giving group members an imaginary token of appreciation
