    I would wait to see if the team identifies it as a powerful question first. If not I would make mention at the next intervention check point of the powerful questions being asked, and what the impact is on the discussion at hand. Ideally if the right question is asked, the team is moving in the right direction without intervention on my part.

    Being as a coach, I would ask the team that “how can we as a team can have peeper understanding of the problem nature like this”?

    I will ask the team to write Problem Statement again and ask if we have an agreement on the Problems – Yes / No / Close
    We have another XX minutes to work on this problem and then I will ask the problem presenter what actions he is going to take as a result of this session.
    Now, who has the next question
