And as an action learning coach I wouldn’t have to do anything at this time. Reply Andrew Christopher April 17, 2018 at 6:05 am | # The problem presenter is allowed to ask questions, so I would handle it by doing nothing. Often groups will fire so many questions at the problem presenter that the balance of who is asking and who is answering question is off-base, so I might responds to this scenario by noting improved balance in who is asking and who is answering questions. Reply Nanda Oomen April 19, 2018 at 1:48 am | # The problem presenter may ask questions as well as the other participants. In fact, it is a plus when that happens. It encourages the group to tackle the problem from a shared responsibility. I would not intervene as a coach as long as the other participants accept that the problem presenter also asks questions. Reply Kimberly Johnson May 7, 2018 at 7:15 pm | # The problem presenter is part of the team and should be allowed to ask questions. Reply Karla VERSOLATO May 25, 2018 at 11:50 pm | # It would not intervene, as this is within rule 1- anyone can ask anyone at any time. Reply Henk Jan Quarre June 11, 2018 at 1:20 pm | # If this situation occurs then I will not carry out an intervention. As an Action Learning coach, I believe that the quality of the Action Learning session will go up if the problem presenter also asks questions. In this case, the individual problem becomes a common problem. Reply Jeroen van der Ven June 21, 2018 at 6:02 pm | # The problem solver is free to ask questions. After all, he or she is no problem at all. I will not intervene as an action learning coach. Reply Dina Guo June 26, 2018 at 1:29 pm | # The problem presenter has the same right to ask questions in the Action Learning because the rule 1 is “Anyone can ask anyone at any time”. I will not carry out an intervention. Reply Akshay Seth July 20, 2018 at 7:50 pm | # Till the time the Problem Presenter is directing the question towards the group, my intervention would not be necessary as the 1st ground rules state “anyone can ask questions of anyone else”. Reply Maria Angela Passadori August 9, 2018 at 9:44 am | # As an Action Learning Coach, I would follow through with the session normally, considering that one of the basic rules of Action Learning is that everyone can ask everyone at any point in the process. According to the group’s moment, if there was a need, you could intervene with questions in order to strengthen the importance of everyone’s participation: What is the first basic rule of Action Learning? Why is it important for everyone to ask questions? Reply Leave a comment You must be logged in to post a comment.
