Title: Barriers to effective communication

Barriers to effective communication
  • In the previous blog we saw about the effective
    communication and its importance where now let us
    have a clarification that how it hinders our
  • It is known that very few are aware of
    communication skills. The ambiguity of
    communication misleads the way we transmute the
    message from one and another. Despite of all the
    wrong insights about communication, people feel
    that they are very efficient at communication and
    dispute that the reasons for the barriers are
    others problems.

  • In order to lead a life in these embattled
    societies, we ought to be ready to overcome the
    barriers in communication.
  • Classification of barriers
  • The major barriers that affect communication
    process are listed below.
  • Semantic barrier
  • Physical barrier
  • Organizational barrier
  • Emotional barrier

  • Semantic barrier
  • Linguistic ability would be hindrance to commute
    with others. Though we converse in the same
    language, the vocabulary being used in the
    message would obstruct the understanding by the
    receiver due to the unfamiliarity of those words.
  • Physical barrier
  • Environmental and natural conditions disturb the
    process of conversation. Geographical distance
    should also be considered. Communication will be
    at ease in shorter distance. Some technological
    interior work place and noise could also create
    problem in proper communication.

Organizational barrier
  • When there is a lack in the ability to
    communicate with the members of an organization
    that leads to the failure of that organization.
    At the same time if it is effectively conversed
    then there is only success in that organization.
    In many MNCs we can see culturally diverse
    audience and the usage of new technologies which
    had caused a demand for organizational
    communications. Moreover, poor management,
    behavior conflicts and lack of motivation will
    thwart the communication.

  • Emotional barrier
  • Common road blocks of improper communication are
    pride, anger, anxiety and depression. Pride
    makes you concentrate on your own perspective
    rather than the benefits among the people
    involved in that communication. Anger affects
    the way of transforming the message you received
    which would deviate the way of communication.
    Anxiety hinders your concentration and has a
    chance to deviate from the effective
    communication. Depression isolates you from
    others and blocks your communication leading to
    cold feelings toward others.

  • These barriers affect our day to day
    conversations and cause many conflicts among
    ourselves. To overcome this we need practical
    experience to gear up the skills necessary for
    effective communication and that would be
    discussed in my next blog.
