The Spirit of Hospitality
The Art and Science of Hospitality and Service
Japanese have a word for it!
... is the Japanese word for "extraordinary guest hospitality and service". It's known the world over for its attention to detail, tireless "can do" spirit and exceptionally high standards.
Helpfully, the philosophies, attitudes and service behaviours behind it all have labels – a special word, a 漢字 Kanji character or a proverbial expression that often has no direct word English translation.
Aims of this online course. And why now?
In these unprecedented times, even with some light at the end of the tunnel, many people in hospitality careers will be wondering what the "New Normal" in the industry will look like. Can the industry still give them the financial and career security they need into the future.
This weekly online course is full of interesting ideas and insights. It introduces the example of ”OMOTENASHI” hospitality culture as a tool to inform, inspire and re-engage teams with the spirit of hospitality.
The course begins and ends with the Japanese concept called "Ikigai 生き甲斐" - similar in meaning to a person's "raison d'etre" - and asks the question , "Is a rewarding career in Hospitality your IKIGAI"?
