In verbal communication sender wants to send a source to receiver throw different communication medium like Phone, face to face communication. In this verbal communication there is no any evidence of communication, in this cases there is possibility of fraud. There is no any proof of communication between two parties or persons. While in non-verbal communication throw writing, agreements, and on paper communication done so that there are evidence of that communication so its very safe communication in an organization. I learn during academic year that written communication is the best communication in organization. So I always use written communication in LSG Sky Chef. Due to this skills I can boost my confidence level now at the work place. Communication would be in bi-directional. And I never afraid to communicate with the managerial levels. These theories really help me in my practical life now.

it is a contest between individuals, groups, nations, international Markets. Different countries can make a tax competition between them and government a profit or investors become in good profit. I found in LSG that they concentrate on price, promotion, product, people and Quality so they can achieve their goal in short term.

8. Ecological:-

Global environment policies for climate changes, air pollution, restriction on fishing and cutting down on carbon emissions. These policies are equal for each and every organization in all over the world. That theories are applied by LSG now a days.

In any organization either it may be a large or small there is a leader for any kind of operations.

During my academic year I study on leadership concept and I understand that Manager is not a leader but manager can be a good leader. This concept I seen at work place LSG Sky Chef. There are many more operations performs so there are different leaders for different operations. So I found that their skills that how they performs and get the optimum result at the end of operations. They have the skills that how they can get the work from the subordinates or team of that particular operations. Leader always motivates the team or members of the teams of those operations. Leader also encourage to us for the work and style of our work, so we trying to achieve that goal which kept by the leader to us with optimum result.
