    I would ask something along the lines of “Has anyone noticed who is receiving all of our questions thus far?” Based on the group’s response . . . which I think would be apparent . . . we could explore the benefit of opening up the questioning to others. How might we engage others in the process of responding to questions? What value is there to be gained by doing so? And to the Problem Presenter . . . What does it feel like being asked all of the questions? Are there some questions you might like to ask of the group?

    As the Action Learning Coach, I would intervene and address them accordingly, framing the question in a different way, such as:

    By asking questions of each other, how can we discover the other knowledge members of the working group have? Why is it important that we tap into the diverse knowledge available to us here?

    I would ask – What’s the balance of who is asking and who is answering questions?
    Why is it important that we tap all the knowledge we have here?
    How can we tap into each others knowledge?

    Happy Coaching

    Team, how are we doing so far?
    What’s the team interaction level on a scale of 1-10?
    What can we do to improve that?

    I would ask, “What have you noticed about who the questions have been directed to?” Assuming they would answer they have all been directed to the presenter I would then ask what the impact of that is and then what they will do to improve.

    I would do a quick Yes-No round and ask: “Have you been asked a question?”

    Since the members will say “No”, I would then follow with: “What would be the impact if only the problem presenter gets to answer questions?”

    Then I would ask: “Coming from this, what do we need to do as a team moving forward?”
