Here is the list of Do’s and Don’ts for the Roadies: Hell Down Under Group Discussions:
– Be calm. During the GD, try to remain calm and maintain your composure.
– Be specific. Whenever you get a chance to speak, stay to the topic and be specific. Remember: It is the QUALITY of your talks that are being judged and NOT quantity.
– Be polite. If you want to contradict another participant on his/her views, start with a sentence like ‘ I understand your point of view but I think that (your view)’ or ‘ I agree with your thoughts but the way I see it is (your view)’
– Make opportunities for you to talk. If there is utter chaos in the GD and no one is listening to each other, turn to the GD moderator and ask his/her permission to speak. This will automatically silence the other participants and also give you a chance to put forth your views. (Don’t forget to thank the GD moderator)
