The person who is having good interpersonal skills can travelling bag difficult situtation in a better way.4 CHANGE MANAGEMENTChange can be blackball or positive in any organization in courthouse hotel staff can it as in a positive way or can put it in a negative way. The mindset of the staff can make them to resist for change or also it can be possible if they like the change they can also welcome it and adopt it as new amount to development. The reason for the resistance can be as follows.Freedom- there might be thinking amongst the staff whether they will be under a boss who can resist their freedom to work.Resp onsibility their office can be divided between the new staff.

Managers should also refer to the doubts of the employees that they might have in their minds so that they might not r esist the change process. . There are some locomote by which a manager can know about the employees, first step is looking personal files, second step is asking questions from the employee and the next and last step is listening and observing. According to Robert Bacall empathy is walking in other person shoes. Thus by implying empathy in the courthouse hotel the managers should get to know the problems of the individual employees.4.2 Communication- Robert Bacall states that communication is a 2 way method and in this method the hotel management has to communicate the desired wants and new management policies to the hotel staff. In communication after giving instructions the management has to even look for the feedback from the employees. So that the barriers for communication can be over ridden.4.3 Participation- (Coch et al, 1948), states that participation is the major step. Participation is the change tends to reduce resistance material body on the change and motive people to make the change to work. Kirkpatrick, (2007), states that Participation is technique for use in conducting instructional meetings. The participation has its two basic riseed first one is which one is most common form is to have discussion among the participation without any hesitation and leaders gives questions and problems to entire group. Employers answer it to the leader. Second approach is that group is divided into buzz group of 4 or 5 people so that each employee can participate actively. Thus it is suggested that by implying participation the employs tend to feel better and favour the change rather than resisting it.CONCLUSION After reading the whole study of the courthouse hotel.
