    If the team is asking good questions but not making progress towards a solution, I will firstly intervene with “Team, how are we doing with regards to asking questions?” After the team points out their observations, I will ask, “Besides building on each other’s questions, what else can we do to improve the team’s progress towards a solution?”

    As we intervene to minimize / address behaviors or situations that might pull the team away from their goals, I feel intervention is also necessary to help amplify what’s working well for the team. I’ll start of by asking “On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the team’s performance as of the moment?”. Once they’re done sharing their answers, I will then say “I noticed some powerful questions asked earlier, what’s working out for the team?”. After listening to their answers, I will ask “what do we need to do more of to help each other ask more powerful questions?”.
