    Time for a statement: ‘I notice that we are talking about the problem at hand. It is possible that some of you could benefit by making our problem here more visible. I suggest that someone asks a question about this matter before going back to the subject of our problem. The team will probably verify together if you’re statement was useful of not.

    As of coach, I will ask the question to the team that how much we are talking to each other? Someone might answer high score. Then I will ask the next question that if we are talking to each other as high score, what will impact to our team learning? After that ask what shall we do?

      I would make an observation: ‘I have noticed that we only talk about the problem’. Then, I would ask the group: “How does it affect the group in problem solving?”.

    I would say ” Team, what do you notice about the way we are discussing the problem?” after they reply I would ask again ” What is the impact on decision making when participants have different ways of communicating and understanding the problem?” This may lead to a discussion about the different learning styles. Then I will ask ” How do we proceed with the problem solving now that you are aware of the different learning styles of the team members?”

    As a coach, I think I will intervene by asking people step back to practice their leadership competencies. For instance, first, ask: “What we had been doing in the last 15 mins?”, next: “What do you try to achieve in this period of time?”, next “If I may ask each of you to make a question that can show your highest leadership competency you chose at the beginning of the session, what is yours?”

    As a coach of Action Learning, in that case, I will ask the team, “hello team, I am watching during a period we are only talking to each other. So how does if influence the group in problem – solving if we are continuing to talk to each other?’

    As a coach, I will ask the team: “How has the team worked in the past?” “What has the team learned from the past team work?”

    “If to make it better What should the team do to better learning?”

    I would say: “I noticed that we are discussing some complex situation. It seems to contain many elements. I am wondering, after such a long statement, has everyone remembered all the elements included in the statement?”
    Then I would ask: “For such a complex issue, in order to let every participant can understand and remember the details, what other supporting methods can we use besides the verbal statement?”
    Let the team explore the multiple supporting methods for the discussion.
