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.

    我刚好处理完一个类似的案例,我的做法是适时介入 ,然后提问大家:
    “我们是否对可能影响结果的 factors 达成了一致?YES or NO?”
    “请每个人把你认为需要关注的 factors 写下来,然后读出来,PP最后读出”
    “我们是否达成了一致?YES or NO?”
    “我们有什么方法确保在探索这个问题的时候更加全面?”
    “我们有什么方法能确定我们探索因素都影响我们?”
