Scenario: Multiple Variables

As an Action Learning Coach how would you handle the following situation:

The team is attempting to analyze the problem situation in a search to identify the one key variable that they can influence or change to create movement in the direction of their established goal or end result. They are debating the relevance of only a few factors and seem to be ignoring the probability that the problem situation was caused or is perpetuated by multiple factors.

    As the coach, I might ask “How are we doing at being open to all possibilities?”

    From 1 to 10, how are we exploring all perspectives about this problem?
    Why is it important?
    How can we do it ?
    Or, I would ask if we have consensus about wich part of the problem we are focusing

    As Jayne and Marina have said –

    How are we doing exploring all aspects of this problem?
    Why is it important that we explore all elements of the problem?
    How can we be sure we explore all the factors that are impact us?

    Happy Coaching

    I love this question and how it challenges the team to open up to a broader way of seeing.
