The person who starts the group discussion should be very sure of his understanding of the topic.   b . Moderator : The one who tells the group about the need to reach a conclusion and also avoids the discussion from deviating into other topics .

Slide 10:

c . Gatekeeper : In every group there are members who are aggressive and those who do not speak at all . Maintaining a balance between them is crucial . The gatekeeper motivates people to participate in the discussion and also helps the aggressive ones make room for others. d. Summarizer : This person summarizes the valid points discussed by the group. This is generally done towards the end of the discussion but at times people keep summarizing every few minutes . Over doing this is not a good thing .
