The barriers to written communication are:

  • Language

  • Feeling

  • Individual

  • Content


Ways to overcome the barriers:

  • Use simplified sentences. Try to avoid using jargon and technical terms. Explain well.

  • Do not find fault in the person’s written language. Hurting feelings does not improve written or spoken communication.

  • Call the person by name. Review the contents of the document with the person. Ask the person to make the necessary corrections you have suggested politely.

  • Simplify the contents of written documents with a flow chart. This will help to make it easier to understand the contents.
