Dealing with dominant team members
It is likely that you will come across a dominant team member at some point during an assessment centre. It can make it difficult for you or your fellow team members to be able to assert other opinions and can often be destructive in a group task. Don't be afraid to challenge dominant group members – be calm, diplomatic and logical, picking up on their points and asking them why they feel that way, whilst also inviting other group members to comment. This should allow for a break in the dominant member’s speech and will encourage other members to put forward opinions.
