    As an action learning coach I would invite him to thinking what would it have been like if he had practiced this? What kind of new experience could you have lived?

    Also, I will ask the group if them observed during the participant aproach if he applied the leadership skill chosen in practice. Because, some people needs the group support to validated your high self-criticism.

    I, as a coach, will ask participant how to understand their leadership skills. Why choose to practice that leadership skill? If participant doesn’t know how to ask question to practice leadership skill. I will ask the team members to ask questions as an example for that participant. And ask participant to consider whether to go into further action learning to choose other leadership skill that are more aptitude or not.

    At the conclusion of the session, I follow the standard process of reminding each participant which skill they were working on, then ask them how do they think they did, asking for an example. I would then ask the team when they saw the participant demonstrate the leadership skill. If the individual self-assesses that they did not demonstrate the skill, and the team confirms this through their feedback, I would ask “What was important for you about practicing this leadership skill today?” I might also ask “In reflection, were there opportunities where you might have used the skill yet did not?” “What have you learned from this experience that you can take back to your work or life?” If the individual self-assesses that they did use the skill, and the team does not provide feedback to the contrary, I would ask for specific examples that demonstrated use of the skill, both from the participant and from the team. I would then ask about the impact of demonstrating the skill.
