Communication BarriersFiltering This refers to a sender manipulating information so that the receiver will see it as more favourably. For example, a message sender sees the world through one set of filters experiences and values and the receiver sees it through a different set of filters. Themore vertical levels in the organization’s hierarchy, the more opportunities there are for filtering. Some filtering will occur wherever there are status differences. Factors such as fear of conveying bad news, for example employees might tell their boss what they wantto hear therefore altering upward communications (Langton, Robbins & Judge, 2019).Selective Perception This means the receivers in the communication process selectively sees and hears based on their needs.
