Barriers to communication

There are many barriers to communication which will stop people from understanding and relating to your presentation, below I have listed just a few of the main ones.

  1. Boring presentation – Your presentation may bore your audience if you haven’t taken the time to understood your audiences needs and expectations.
  2. Using Long Words – Dont use long words, people will switch off if they find the language you are using difficult to understand.
  3. Jargon – If you are going to use jargon make sure you explain the meaning so that everyone understands what you are talking about and they don’t feel left out.
  4. How you express yourself – be careful how you say things as this can affect the meaning and understanding of what you are saying
  5. Agenda – Make sure everyone understands what the presentation is about, you can do this in your introduction.

Think about what barriers you may be putting up in your presentations.
