BACHELOR OF INTERNATIONAL HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT
The first important element of organizational behavior identified in the case situation is the communication between the guest and Johan. In Johan perception, the way the guest calling for Johan or other staff was rude, but maybe for the guest, it was nothing and it is the way how she called every other staff at other hotel as well.

In order to have a functional restaurant or hotel we need to have a team work, helping each other when the hotel or restaurant is very busy, high occupancy or full house. Backing up each other would really help the smooth flow of service and prevent guest complains.
