Obstacles to Upward Communication:

  • Many employees fear that expressing their true feelings about the company to their boss could be dangerous.
  • The fairly wide-spread belief that disagreeing with the boss will block promotion still holds.
  • There is a wide-spread conviction that management is not interested in employee problems.
  • Some have the feeling that employees are not rewarded for good ideas.
  • There is a lack of supervisory accessibility and responsiveness.
  • The conviction is widespread that higher management doesn’t take prompt action on problems.
