John Christensen’s Fish Philosophy and Dr Scott Simmerman’s Square Wheels have transformed workspaces the world over and have received exceptional praise. Join the workshops and meet the experts to learn how to use these powerful management techniques.

The Fish! Philosophy, modelled after the Pike Place Fish Market, is a business technique that is aimed at creating happy individuals in the workplace. John Christensen created this philosophy in 1998 to improve organisational culture. The central four ideas are: ‘Choose your attitude’, ‘Play’, ‘Make their day’ and the ‘Present moment’.

The Square Wheels is an illustration-based business simulation tool replete with a set of powerful images, cartoons, and metaphors. Join thousands of team leaders who are using the concept the world over to facilitate better communications, engagement, create new ideas, implement change and remove roadblocks for continuous improvement. This workshop will be led by a certified Square Wheels facilitator.

The workshop will be delivered online. Participants will also receive a digital certificate on completion of the workshop. 

Workshop fee: INR 1200 per participant per workshop.

Special discounted fee: INR 950 per participant per workshop for the British Council library members.
