Scenario: Last call

As an action learning coach, how would you handle the following situation: You’ve been randomly calling for participants to read their problem. The problem presenter consistently waves you off – waiting until lasts to read their version of the problem.

    I would allow the participant to go last. They may be nervous, so allowing the participant to find their comfort level would make the session more productive. Nevertheless, I would not let them pass when calling on members again.

    I would ask for volunteer from the team to proceed with the session and come back to this participant when the others have voiced their thoughts.

    I would say: I see you have your version of the problem ready. I will ask you to read it after all participants.

    “Why am I asking the problem presenter to read the question now?”
    “what is the possible impact of the problem presenter reading their statement first or last?”
    “What is happening right now?”
    “Why do you think this is happening?”
    “How would you like to address this as a group?”

    The participant has the right to feel different emotions during the process. He can speak last. If there are voices of doubt from the group, I would suggest that the speaker choose the next person to respond.

    – Ask PP: what makes you refuse to read the issue?
    – Ask the Team: How does a member’s refusal to read the problem affect the group?
    – Ask the Team: What will the group decide to do next?
