8 Barriers to Communication

Tear down the walls and convey what you mean in the most effective way possible. Management Study Guide provides a list of eight barriers that you need to overcome. They include perceptual and language differences, information overload, inattention, time pressures, distraction/noise, emotions, complexity in organizational structure, and poor retention. Some takeaways include pairing down information to give just the vital parts an employee needs, being mindful of human retention rates, and not allowing time limits to become a source of cutting corners when information is being passed around. Basically, it is probably safe to assume that you are never getting your message through entirely. The best you can do is limit how muddled the message becomes.
