Communication breakdown can come as a result of poor listening and judgement skills.


A learner reported a message to me concerning the reason why he missed the lessons that day. I called the parent, and what I told the parent only stirred more misunderstanding between us.


Misinterpretation of messages can drastically affect relationships, in the sense that it leads to misunderstanding between the people who were once having a cordial relationship.


Messages can be caused by poor listening skills, poor communication and personal issues.


We can reduce distortion of messages by listening carefully and reporting exactly what we have heard.

Experience of communication breakdown: I passed a general comment on an issue presented on a lunchtime bulletin. It was taken personally by some colleagues whom I had no idea were going through similar issues. 

Impact of communication breakdown: Effective communication ensures clarity of information thus correct interpretation and vice versa. Relationships are enhanced by good communication.

Causes of breakdown: pre-judgement, lack of concentration at reception and prejudices

Resolution: pay more attention, avoid pre-judgement and prejudices

I told a girl in class who had started misbehaving that

"Siku hizi umemea pembe"

The girl went home and told the mother that I told her ati ako na pepo.  The mother wrote a very nasty letter to me.

This means that she did not listen well 

The attitude towards a person can also make one hear the wrong thing 

Messages get distorted because people don't take time to listen 

In order to reduce distortion people need to listen well and also pass correct information to others

A breakdown in communication causes misinformation. When any communication is misinterpreted, it causes stress, mistrust and conflict.

Communication breakdown can destroy relationships. It can cause conflict among individuals

Messages get distorted if the recipient gets the wrong perception or hasn't understood the message. Also if the recipient has not been keen on what is being communicated.

To reduce distortion of messages, the message should be clear ( clarity), the sender should be careful on the tone he/ she uses and check on the non verbal communication and use face to face mode of communication.

           The last recipients of the message got KENYA POWER  and not EMPOWER.

The result of misinterpreted information leads to misunderstandings, info that can't be acted upon, confusion due to ambiguity, missed opportunities.

I once  got an ambiguous message and failure to clarify  caused me to do something that caused me embarrassment and a missed opportunity.

Communication can enhance relationships if is clear , choice of words respectful and making message as accurate to pass intended information. This means those communicating are able to act accordingly for the benefit of all. Respect  enhances relationship of communicating parties,healthy boundaries on what to say and what not to  depending on the relationship of the parties

Disrespect, distorted information, being casual can ruin relationships between parties.

  • Communication breakdown is caused by:

  • lack of clarity

  • negative attitude by one speaking

  • hidden interests

  • noise

  • timing


Break down can be overcome by:

  • being purposeful about the message to be passed

  • avoid noise

  • have the right attitude

  • let the timing be right

  • where possible the message to be passed from the source to the recipient

  • listening keenly

  • seeking clarification

What causes distortion of msg is ; poor listening skills, poor pronunciation, language barrier, background noises, hearing impairement etc.

The msg gets distorted due to; breakdown, many channels of communication, lack of clarity, actions not matching their words

To reduce distortion, one has to be audible enough to suppress background noises, use a language that can be clearly understood, avoid many channels of communication.

There's either noise in the background, people speaking in relatively low tones or there's someone with hearing impairment because someone feels irritated. 

Communication breakdowns may lead to one having wrong information or getting meaningless ideas.

Consequences of misinterpretation of message was doing something contrary to what was expected. 

Communication can destroy relationships if the information is misinterpreted or delivered wrongly. It can also enhance relationships if positively consumed by the receipts and well interpreted. 

Messages can be distorted if the reporter decides to change the original message and meaning. Messages get distorted  if the messenger has an ill motive. Information distortion can be reduced by messengers delivering the message as it or by using other channels of communication.

1.   What is happening  in the pictures is that the first person passes the message     'empower' which it to be conveyed from one person to the other. by the time it reaches the last person the message is different.     Last person say what he has heard which is 'Kenya power'.

2. I once conveyed the wrong message as a child when I  was sent to buy salt but told the shopkeeper  sugar instead. we had to contend with saltless food because it was already late to go back to the shop.

3. Communication destroys relationships - when we send negative messages or say negative  things to people, when there is delay in communication or when we choose wrong channels of communication

It enhances relationships when we communicate positively, choose the write channels, send clear messages and do it t the right time.

4. what causes distortion is sending unclear message, use the wrong channel, delaying the message.

5. to avoid distortion; choose the right channel, send clear messages and be prompt and timely with the message.

An experience I had on breakdown of communication: on the onset of covid-19 just before  lockdown, my elderly father got seriously sick. Almost at the same time, my cousin who works in Nairobi had come to the village. I just commented that dad's sickness must be anxiety due to corona virus. One of the relatives went and reported to my cousin that i had said he has brought Corona from the city that's why dad was sick. He was so annoyed and didn't visit our home for the entire period he was home. we later patched up when I learnt of the misreporting.

Causes of msg distortion could be poor listening skill thus not getting the whole msg, others could be due to malice, a chain of messengers or background noise.

to reduce this could be by using a language that is understood by all, being clear while communicating and if possible repeating for clarity.
