Starfish People: Our story
Our name derives from the Starfish Story, a tale of a man who walked by the seashore and saw a girl throwing starfish back into the ocean. He asked why she was doing it and she replied that, with the sun up and the tide going out, the starfish would soon die if she did not act. Perplexed, the man pointed out that there was a long stretch of beach likely with many starfish and she didn’t stand a chance of helping them all. Smiling, she threw another into the sea and said: “I made a difference to that one”. This story provides tremendous insight and is an astute reminder that we each hold in our hands the power to change a mind, situation or life at any time we please. Starfish People nurtures this innate ability to have a positive impact on the outcome of challenges in the workplace because it’s a precious commodity. We embrace this ethos and for us the reward is in witnessing the change that we make to individuals, teams and large organisations. By making a difference one team member, manager or director at a time, Starfish People ultimately makes a difference to companies as a whole and to as many people as possible.
