Chapters are comprised of 75 short vignettes, split into nine sections that reflect and cover the primary challenges facing hospitality managers on a daily basis, including leadership credibility, building and managing employee performance, managing a diverse workforce, dealing with problem behaviors, and many others, all contextualised within the hospitality industry. With a main "think point" and series of questions for each case, the book is a highly insightful and engaging read. Suggested answers and solutions to the questions can be found within the extensive online resources that complement the book. Each section is also contextualized and theorized with an additional reading section, organized by key concept.
