Miscommunication happens to everyone. It's part of life. We receive or send a message that doesn’t make sense because the information is unclear, the language is confusing, we’re emotionally overwhelmed, or there’s something else blocking our understanding—such as a background distraction or a difference in perspective.

When this happens—when our understandings don’t line up—there’s usually a communication barrier in the way, and it can lead to a lot of confusion. So, how do we remove these barriers? 

In this micro course, we’ll explore that answer, focusing on five of the most common communication barriers and explaining how to best avoid and overcome them as both senders and receivers of messages.
