How do we communicate? Our preferred communication style.2022-02-23T10:47:59-05:00

How do we communicate? Our preferred communication style at FSG. One of the Fish Stewarding Group FAQs on healthy communication for productive conversations and results.

How do we communicate?

Our short answer is with integrity, honor, patience and calm. We believe these are at the core to allow for the most productive conversations and results.

This is not by any means a rule book when it comes to communication. FSG looks at this as a guide and an approach that we like to have in conversations with those we are working with or are considering working with us as well as for any professional or for that matter, personal conversations as well.

In our experience, these touch points allow for mutual understanding, respect and growth to occur as well as being achieved faster.. The same expectations we ask for below are the same you can expect from the Fish Stewarding Group. You may also want to ensure that this is the kind of communication you have internally and externally in your business. This is a large part of our discussion and discovery when it comes to the FSG Messaging and Optics work.


A straightforward answer to a straightforward question may move you that much more forward in this world, that much faster.”


In someways, this approach can be summed up in the above quote with the idea that communication centered around transparency, humility, honor, accountability as well as the ability to hear the other side and not make or rush to judgements when disputes arise… can allow for the best paths and best growth possible.

From your messaging and marketing to the external, internal and even interview conversations, this may serve to help.

    2. If you can’t make a meeting…
    3. If you can’t make a deadline…
    4. If you can’t make sense of something…
    5. If circumstances change…
      1. Please inform us so we know as soon as possible and so we can figure out the best strategy to apply to keep momentum for the project.Going Silent, ducking, hiding or avoiding does not honor you, us or the process.As things happen, keep us in the loop.When communication and respect are at their best, we will do all we can to make any issue, problem or delay have the least impact.

What do I do next?2022-02-18T14:04:40-05:00

 What do I do next?

A common question received by FSG is the simple question, what do I do next?  Even when it’s acknowledged that ‘we don’t know what we don’t know’, the question still remains the same.  What do we do next?  Stewarding is a comprehensive concept at FSG that embodies the principle of coming along side for the benefit of another to teach, consult and coach for the purpose of allowing one to do on their own what they have previously been taught.  

How do I tell my story over telling a story?2022-02-18T14:04:40-05:00

How do I tell my story over telling a story?

Many children relate to stories.  We have noticed a great number of people relate to stories.  This is also found that groups and cultures relate to stories.  With FSG, an element of building a responsible vision is securing and stabilizing your story.  A common trait of undefined visions is an evolving story that conforms and takes on many attributes common to many people.  Transparency can be a lost art in many circles, that can rob an owner of their story by trying to conform to a story to give what they believe other people want.  Strength can be found in authentic, humble and transparent stories.  It’s ok to own your story.  Since it is no one else’s, own it proudly.

This is the same when it comes to the brand messaging. Is your brand messaging telling a story or is it telling your story? Consider making it your story and not trying to script what you think people want to hear.

What is a responsible vision?

In starting to build-out a responsible vision, FSG comes along side to help develop an owner’s vision by means of extrapolation, organization and endurance.  A responsible vision does not start with l want to make as money as possible.  It should also be noted that we feel making money is not bad and should be an objective of the effort, just not the main objective.

In A blue rectangle with a swirl coming from the lower right side of it has white text in the middle that reads: "Making money is not bad and should be an objective of the effort, just not the main objective." Beneath the box is the text: Douglas P Fish. Under that, it reads Founder, Steward and CEO, Fish Stewarding Group.

“Making money is not bad and should be an objective of the effort, just not the main objective.”

The how we get there, who we want to be involved with and where we want to engage are important questions to answer that will aid and lead us to what methods we employ to achieve the desired solutions for meeting a defined need.  We believe responsible visions are inherently filled with passion due to the purpose on which they stand.

Making money is not bad and should be an objective of the effort, just not the main objective.” – Douglas P Fish.

How do you define giving?2022-02-07T17:08:17-05:00

How do you define giving?

At FSG, one of our life’s purpose is knowing when to Give A Fish or to Teach To Fish.  As owner of FSG, I wrestled with this concept as it mainly related to charitable and humanitarian work for me.  In wrestling it out, I realized I lived life in this manner especially in business.  However, I failed in being able to separate the two to allow the Teach To Fish to bear the importance it needed to do.

I realized you Give a Fish to meet a need but more than likely that same need would be there the next day, week, month or year as soon as the money or food ran out.  I also realized that to Teach To Fish I could bring forth destiny by transferring what I knew so that they could one day do for themselves and then transfer that to others they could help.
