As an action learning coach, how would you handle the following situation: A team member who is neither the responder nor the questioner, becomes withdrawn after listening to the exchange that has just taken place.

    I would observe for a while and if nothing changed, I would find space to intervene and ask: At one point X and Y were exchanging questions and answers with each other…. What did it do for you? How did it affect the group?

    If it were to go on for a while, I would ask the group, “How do they think, feel – if everyone is actively involved in the work of the group?” If the group had perceived on its own that one person became withdrawn (If the group would not notice anything, I would point out my own observations and ask if they agreed with me), and then I would ask this person, “What would you need to get back into being active again – question and answer sessions?” and the I would ask question to the group “What do you think, what could you do?”
