Details

Leadership training is beneficial for the development of every human being, but few leadership models have focused on leadership qualities under service economies. In view of the lack of leadership models designed for service economies, the service leadership model was proposed by the Hong Kong Institute of Service Leadership and Management. To promote service leadership in the growing service economies, there is an obvious need to develop service leadership education for young people, particularly university students who are pillars of society in the future. In this book, the core beliefs and basic assertions of the service leadership model are highlighted, and integration of Western notions of leadership and Chinese philosophies (e.g., Confucian virtues) is attempted. Students are expected to integrate the academic content of the subject with their real life experiences. Finally, several evaluation mechanisms have been used to evaluate the subject. The authors’ hope to generate more interest, discussion, and further development of service leadership education within and outside of Hong Kong. (Imprint: Nova)
