Lack of communication efficiency and clarity is another major cause of poor communication in workplace. In most cases, the managers may delay to communicate information to the team leaders or to the other junior employees. When the information reaches the respective recipient, it may force them to change the decision they have made concerning an issue and may be if the information had reached on time, they could have made the correct decision on time.
Efficiency and clarity of information is also affected by the organization structure and the channels of communication being utilized. Complex organization structures tend to have problems in passing messages since the hierarchy is not clearly understood.
The above causes of poor communication can be triggered by emotions like anger, depression among others. This results to the sender, medium of communication or the recipient of the message translating it with some biasness.
