Scenario: Guess

As an Action Learning Coach how would you handle the following situation:

The problem presenter decides this is a game where the team members have to guess what they are thinking the real problem is. Consequently, they keep their answer as short as possible, not giving any more information than s absolutely required to answer the question.

    This is an apt opportunity for learning and intervention by the Action Learning Coach. I would intervene and ask, how we are doing as a group? – Only responses – OK? / Not OK? What are we doing well? What can we do better? Do we have clarity and agreement on the problem? Only responses – Yes / No / Close. Then, I will ask them to write down the problem with a statement ‘XX’s problem is….. And then ask them to read the statement to the group.

    Intervene by asking team the question “do we have an agreement on the problem statement yet- yes, no, quit close- and let write down on the problem statement you think on the paper”?

    I will intervene the problem presenter by remind he/she the definition of Action learning on projector ” Action learning is a problem solving process that involves a small group working on a real problem, taking action. ” Do you agree to do session follow this definition ? If yes, we will continue our session , if No ,PP still want to play game , I will ask team agreement to stop sessions.
