Fishy Mission and Values?

January 23, 2012

The start of a new year tends to be a period of reflection and forecast – what better place to start than with your mission

Your mission – should you choose to accept it!

mission statement is a statement of the purpose of a company or organization. The mission statement should guide the actions of the organization, spell out its overall goal, provide a path, and guide decision-making. It provides “the framework or context within which the company’s strategies are formulated

What are business values?

Business values are the core principles or standards that guide the way you do business. They sum up what your business stands for and what makes it special. While business plans and strategies may change the core values of your business remain the same.

Business Network SW – Mission and values


To provide business networking opportunities where members and guests feel comfortable, relaxed and able to communicate (listen and speak) effectively.

Where business relationships develop that generate opportunities for growth through knowledge, collaboration and profitability.

Values for Business Network (SW) 

Based around FISH Philosophy which applies in all situations – social, business and networking

Where FISH Philosophy was born…. Pike Place Fish Co. Seattle

Living these day in and day out leads to customers that are WOW’d (not just satisfied!), employees that are happy – no delighted to work in the business, that Business Network (SW) is seen to be innovative and continues to grow and that opportunities are realised.

Choose your attitude

  • There is always a choice about the way you do your work (networking), even if there is not choice about the work you do.
  • When you look for the worst you will find it everywhere.  When you learn to have the power to choose your response to what life brings, you can look for the best and find opportunities you never imagined possible.
  • If you find yourself with an attitude that is not what you want it to be, you can choose another one.
  • The attitude you have right now is the one you are choosing.  Is it the one you want?


  • Work made fun gets done, especially when we choose to do serious tasks in a light-hearted, spontaneous way.
  • Play is not just an activity, it’s a state of mind that brings new energy to the tasks at hand and sparks creative solutions

Make their Day

  • When you ‘make someone’s day’ (or moment) through a small kindness or unforgettable encounter, you can turn even routine encounters into special memories.
  • The world becomes a better place the moment you act on an intention to serve another

Be There

  • The glue in our humanity is in being fully present for one another.
  • Being there also is a great way to practise wholeheartedness and fight burnout, for it those half-hearted tasks you perform while juggling other things that wear you out.
  • You can multi task with ‘stuff’ but you need to be there for people

What is your mission- what are your values?
