Adaptation of your communication means that you will be able to communicate with your audience without the issue of your terminology and meaning of words,this links in with cultural differences as well because certain gestures may mean something different in another language.
Body expressions are very important both from you and your audience. If you stand up straight it indicates that you know what you are talking about which will help when your audience is trying to pay attention. if you audience is looking around or is getting easily distracted then it indicates that the subject that you are going on about or the manner that you are presenting your speech is dull and not retaining their attention.
positive langue will also keep you audience engaged in what you have top say along with this general engagement with the audience means that they will be listening to what you have to say, in case you throw a question at them.
Communication in writing
If in a friendly manner then using emoticons in writing clearly shows a friendly manner that will help get certain points across., you can use these in anything however using them in fax and occasionally emails aren't very good to use.
when presenting in a written format (this can be letters, emails or fax) reading through your work is very important as you want all of your writing t make coherent sense. Especial spelling and grammar, this important as it can mean your audience might end up with a different understandings.
The best way to reduce this type of barrier is to check all of the objects in the room such as clocks and what not , and remove them. This will remove all the background that might distract you or your audience, therefor making you communication more efficient.
Not being able to see the non-verbal cues, gestures, posture and general body language can make communication less effective.
These types of barriers include non-verbal cues and also simple gestures such as pointing towards a board with your presentation on. Posture can also have a large effect as it shows to your audience that you are confident in what you are talking about, this also keeps their attention. Body langue is pretty much the same a posture as it also shows that you know what you are talking about and that you are fully engaged in what you are talking about, this keeps the audience interested as they will want to know what you have to say to them.
Lack of concentration
The length of the conversation or communication is key to whether you audience loses concentration. They can only take in so much information at a given time, anymore and they just simple wont listen anymore. Try to keep them engaged; ask them questions, it will help them keep thinking and stay engaged to what you are saying.
