When a controlling teammate insists on telling you how to do your job, dominates every encounter, and forces his or her opinions on you, counter the behavior with this advice:

  • Be confident. Don’t let a controlling teammate make you doubt your skills or expertise.
  • Stand up for yourself. Say: “Thanks for your input, but I am going to handle this my way.”
  • Don’t waste your time bickering. Simply agree to disagree and move on with your life.
