Name and define barriers that can hinder effective communications?
They are organizational, language, managerial, and psychological. Organizational barriers are a result of personnel not understanding their responsibilities and the lines of authority within a given organizational structure. Language barriers result from our inability to use the proper words to communicate with our receiver. Managerial barriers stem from managers not listening and not taking an understanding attitude toward information and suggestions that reach them. Psychological barriers result from psychological needs not being met. These needs are a feeling of security, opportunity for advancement, a desire to be treated fairly, and a realization that one's work is both useful and important.
