    As coach I believe it is fine that the team member asks that question, but they should answer the question that was posed before asking the question.

      Yes, agreed. As coach, I will ask the member to answer the question first. And then he/she can decide if still wants to ask his/her own question.

    As a coach, I think it is important to protect the process and ensure that the initial question is answered by members of the team. I would ask, “Before the follow-up question is asked, does anyone have a response to the initial question?” I would also ask the secondary questioner if they have a way to remember their question should they choose to ask it after the team’s response to the first question.

    As a coach, I believe that this is an appropriate question to ask if the initial question that was posed was answered. If the group had not yet responded to the initial question, I would ask, “Does anyone in the group have a response to the previous question on the table?”

    As a Coach, I would intervene. I observe that we have a question have not answer yet. Does anyone would like to response the question. Pause..wait for an answer…. Then I will ask them to decide the how they would like to continue with those question.?
