A Road Map to Being a Successful Manager in the Foodservice and Lodging Industries

The hospitality industry is founded on the quality of service produced by its employees, and it is the people supervising these employees who hold the keys to the operation’s success. By providing fundamental and comprehensive information on the various elements of a supervisor’s role, this updated Seventh Edition of Supervision in the Hospitality Industry provides comprehensive coverage of the principles, theories, and decision-making skills required to manage a workforce to profitable results.

With applicable concepts, theories, and principles, supervisors and leaders can meet the demands of today’s rapidly advancing hospitality industry. Along with new industry examples, profiles, key word definitions, and web-based activities, the Seventh Edition has also been restructured into four parts:

  • Creating a Positive Work Environment: New sections on leadership behaviors, team building, training programs, and conflict in the workplace.
  • Maintaining High Performance: A New chapter on supervisory delegation.

Discover your own unique management style by mastering the basic principles and utilizing the creative problem-solving methods presented in this revamped Supervision in the Hospitality Industry, Seventh Edition.
