Teambuilding improves workplace communication

Marriages thrive and are successful when there’s healthy and effective communication between the couple. In the same way a company is successful and grows when there’s clear and effective communication in the workplace. However, communication barriers can cause conflict, confusion and certainly do not assist production.

Workplace communication barriers can cripple not only relationships between staff, but also handicap a business. In order for employees to reach goals and targets and enjoy the work they do, communication in the workplace needs to be a priority when it comes to improving workmanship.

What causes communication barriers in the workplace?

  • Cultural difference
  • Gender difference
  • Language barriers
  • 3 “C’s”- Clarity, Completion, Conciseness of the message
  • Encoding and decoding of the message
  • Organizational structure- Hierarchical levels
  • Messages through the grapevine
  • Poor listening
  • Emotions cause communication failure
  • Careless planning of communication
  • Medium used may be ineffective
