Scenario: Facilitator

As an action learning coach, how would you handle the following situation: Someone from the team steps up and starts facilitating the session. For example, standing up, grabbing a marker and saying we should do a force field analysis – what are the things supporting this activity? What are those against it?

    I would kindly remind the person about the first rule in action learning, we can use questions or statements in response to questions. Then ask him/her what question he/she could ask now.

    I calmly would ask to the participant about it: what you are doing is one questions or suggestion? If the participant says is a question. I will continuing asking to him… for who? somenone special or to the team? if he says to the team. I will say, ok. But, before the group answer your question: I observed that you are standing up to talk, any problem to the team about that? I consider that with this intervention I will retake the control of group as Coach. After the team answered the question I will retorn to the participant question asking to someone answer the question proposed for our colegue.
