Argues that research on organizational communication could be developed by looking at the literature on leadership, particularly as it relates to vision. Sets out a representational model of organizational communication, identifying the points at which it can break down and the barriers that can exist to it. Highlights the view that managers and employees may not share the same perceptions, values, agenda and definitions and argues that differences in these can be important barriers to communication. Draws on the leadership literature on vision to identify the main personal and organizational barriers to effective communication, and to discuss how vision can offer additional ways to overcome these barriers.
