32 (f) Lack of cooperation between superior and subordinate: There may not be proper cooperation between the superior and subordinate for various personal or organizational relationships, which may held to improper communication in an organization. 3.3.1.3. Interpersonal Barriers (Relating to Superior-subordinate) Effectiveness of Communication depends a lot upon the interpersonal relationship between two people. If and when the sender and receiver are at the same economic, educational and status level and also have good rapport among each other, there is hardly any barrier arising in communication. But, in case of a difference at any level, there is a greater chance of Miscommunication. The most common example for this in an organization is the Barriers relating to Superior and Subordinate. The subordinate must follow the order of the superior, carry out all work efficiently, and provide full information related to any matter, which arises in the organization or in any work. Moreover, the superior should have full confidence upon himself and the subordinate. In cash he wishes to gives some important message to the subordinate, the barriers existing between them in communication will be reduced. There are two types of superior- subordinate barriers. They are barriers emanating from both superiors and subordinates: 1) Barriers emanating from superiors: Following are the barriers with respect to the superiors: i. Shortage of time for employees: Superior may not devote enough time for their employees due to their busy schedule or other preoccupations. As a result, a gap is created between the superior and subordinates. In the later stage, it acts as a hurdle in the communication process. ii. Lack of trust: Sometimes, the supervisors may not trust their subordinates because of variety of reasons, which can act as a hurdle in the free flow of communication in a organization. iii. Lack of consideration for employee's needs: The employer may not devote enough time for the employees. As a result, they are enabling to understand their needs and genuine problems. It may lead to miscommunication. iv. Wish to capture authority: The superior may hide the confidential and important information from employee in view of capturing and retaining their authority, which acts as the barrier to communication between the superior and subordinates in the organization. v. Fear of losing power of control: The supervisor may have a fear of losing power of control if they freely express their ideas and view with their subordinate. Therefore, they may hide certain important information from their employees, which ultimately affect the communication process in the organization.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
