Can't get a word in? Deal with people who dominate conversations and join in on the talk.

Step 1: Ask questions
Ask specific and direct questions to make it hard for verbal people to take the conversation into another direction, and take control.

Step 2: Acknowledge
Acknowledge the conversation stealer by restating what they said and then invite others to respond.

Step 3: Ask others
Mention another person's name other than the dominator and ask that person a question.

Step 4: Interrupt
Interrupt the conversation dominator and encourage others to share their opinions.

Tip
Gently and politely interrupt the conversation dominator.

Step 5: Move on
State that you have heard their point but it is now time to move on.

Step 6: Speak privately
If all else fails, speak to the dominant speaker privately and share your concerns.

Did You Know?
Fifty-five percent of communication is expressed through body language and only 7 percent is verbal.
