First of all ,let me share with you a few definition of communication. 1.0 Defining Communication
2.1 Carl Rogers (1952) defined communication as listening with understanding to what has been said and interpreting the message accurately as intended 2.2 Elizabeth Tierney (1998) defined it as a process which comprises the following steps-you have a message you want to deliver, you send it out, your audience received the message, reacts to it and the respond to your message. 2.3 Julia Wood(2009) defined it as systemic process in which people interact with and trough symbols to create and interpret meanings.
Therefore ,we can clearly conclude that communication is listening and delivering the right message to your receiver.Please also bear in mind that of all leadership behaviors, the ability to communicate may be the most important. Communications lays the foundation for leading others.( John Baldoni 2003).Simply put, communication is an activity of conveying information through the exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, visuals, signals, writing, or behavior that produces the desired effect or result.Furthermore, communication is effective when the recipients of the message understands its meaning and can express the meaning back to the sender correctly.

Various barriers exist that can distort or prohibit a message from being properly understood or sent. These barriers can cause conflicts such in interpersonal relationships, blocking a business from being successful in a different culture and lead to low motivation in employee satisfaction in an organization.
