Learning and Education This Month

It's not too late to register for two popular Learning and Education programs this month.

Brown Bag Matinee--FISH! Tales; February 13; noon-1 p.m.; Training Center, 3624 Market Street, Suite 1B-South; free. Join us for a video and thought-provoking discussion with your colleagues across the University. Come and recapture the FISH! excitement. FISH! has become a trilogy! First there was FISH! Then there was FISH! Sticks. And Now...FISH! Tales. In FISH! we saw how the fishmongers created a more interesting, playful, profitable and energetic workplace for themselves. FISH! Sticks showed how the fish guys kept their vision alive despite many challenges.

Come see the latest installment in the never-ending battle of putting fun and meaning into your job. FISH Tales! Shows how organizations that seem to have little in common with Pike Place Fish have learned to apply the FISH! philosophy in ways that meet their unique needs. Find out how Fairview University Medical Center, Sprint Call Center, and Aspen Skiing Company have captured the FISH! philosophy and made it work for them--and how you can make it work for you.

Franklin Covey's What Matters Most; February 22; 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Training Center, 3624 Market Street, Suite 1B-South; . Franklin Covey's new time management workshop is back by popular demand.
