How barriers to effective written communication and ways to overcome


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.
