    In what stage is the discussion? How you already can know that a question goes beyond the depth and significance of the problem.
    But when you notice that the group experiences this, you at first can ask the person asking the question to formulate his / her question again.

    As an action learning coach, I would intervene by asking the team what they think of the problem. I would ask what’s going well and what can be improved regarding the depth and understanding of the true nature of the problem. With this information and realization, I would let the team proceed.

    1. I wouldn’t like to interrupt group and stop it from benefiting from this useful question.
    2. During the summing up I would talk with the group What did this question do to them?
    What was unusual about this question that made such an impression. What would they need to ask this kind of questions.
    3. I would do intervention to to make the group realize how effective these kind of questions are.
