    I would wait for the group to respond to the question; if questions continue to be directed to me I would remind the group to ask the team questions;. If needed, I would remind the group of my role in the action learning session.

    I would first see if anyone in the group addresses this issue on the spot, but if not, I would lean in and ask who the initial question was addressed to and then ask the group to discuss the impact on the group when someone else answers a question out of turn. I would then lean out and ask the problem presenter to respond.
