P3- Discuss potential barriers to effective communication
P3- Discuss potential barriers to effective communication
Create a second report with a dedicated section that discusses any potential barriers to the principles of effective communication that you have explained. E.g. diverse audience, background noise, cultural differences, etc. in Task 2.
Discuss potential barriers to effective communication
Barriers of communication are an obstacle that is in the way of a listener knowing and understanding what the speaker is talking about.
Barriers of communication
An example of a barrier to communication would be a manager talking to their staff telling them what to do whilst there is a loud noise in the background. The loud noise is preventing the staff member from hearing what is being said and cannot fully understand what they are being asked to do. Barriers to communication can prevent a message from being heard and understood. It can result in the message being distorted or not heard or understood at all.
Problems with Technology
Software could be out of date which isn’t allowing a user to communicate with an up to date version of the software. The software could have a fault and may not be working properly. Hardware could be damaged and may not be compatible with the software being used. For example if staff wants to carry out a video conference with a client and the client web cam isn’t compatible with the software then this is a barrier to communication.
Problems with Technology
There could even be a network issue. For example if the router was faulty then the internet will not connect. This means that they cannot communicate online.These barriers could be something to do with the person using the technology. They may not understand or be familiar with the technology that is being used. For example if a staff member is communicating to a client via a blog and the client hasn’t used a blog before, they will not be familiar with it and not know how to use or access it.
Language used
Language used is important as understanding the language is key to effective communication. If the person has to use language that is appropriate and that the listener will understand clearly what is being said.Language used is important as understanding the language is key to effective communication. If the person has to use language that is appropriate and that the listener will understand clearly what is being said.
Language used
Use of slang should not be used with a person that does not understand it. Slang is different with different cultures and places. A staff member should not use slang language when talking to someone with a cultural difference as they would not understand what it means. The slang language may have a different meaning where they live. This means that the information that they are picking up is wrong.
Body Language used
Body language can indicate how a person is feeling or what they are thinking. Things like checking the time and staring at the wall can indicate that the person is bored. This can act as a barrier because the person isn’t communicating in a positive manner.
Body Language used
Pointing a finger at a person means that the person is angry and isn’t happy with the certain person. The person is giving off this negative feel due to his body language. The person getting shouted at feels like they are being accused of something, they may back down and not go ahead with an argument.Crossing arms can show that the person is being defensive, awkward or nervous. They may be afraid of saying what they actually want to say or feel.
Spelling and Grammar errors
Written communication can be easily seen as a barrier to communication, reasons being that feedback is not immediate. This means that it is important that when writing it is effective and will not confuse the reader in any way.
Spelling and Grammar errors
This means that the document needs to be properly structured, key messages identified, appropriate fonts and colours, size of font the right size, use of headings and use of bullet points and numbering. Spelling should be accurate and so should grammar and punctuation
Extension:M1 - explain mechanisms that can reduce the impact of communication barriers
Where appropriate, suggest and explain ways (mechanisms) in which these barriers can be overcome, or their impact reduced, this should be backed up from your explanations in Task 3
