Humanistic Perspectives in Hospitality and Tourism, Volume 1 – Excellence and Professionalism in Care

This book, the first of two volumes, uses a framework of philosophical anthropology, and the concepts of humanistic leadership and humanistic management, to explore the value of work in the hospitality and tourism industry. It presents robust theoretical and practical implications for professionalism and excellence at work.

This volume addresses the hospitality professional, beginning with an exploration of the foundational literature, before moving on to discuss topics like the concept of human dignity at work, how one can find meaning within the hospitality industry, spirituality at work, philosophy in the world of work, and personal development.

These volumes will be of use to academics and practitioners in the fields of hospitality and tourism management, humanistic and transformational leadership, corporate social responsibility, human resource management, customer service, and workplace spirituality.
