    A problem presenter should feel comfortable and free to ask questions to the group at any point. And as an action learning coach I wouldn’t have to do anything at this time.

    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.

    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.

    The problem presenter is part of the team and should be allowed to ask questions.

    It would not intervene, as this is within rule 1- anyone can ask anyone at any time.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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”.

    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?

    Following the rule of “everybody is allowed to question everybody within the group”, as an Action Learning coach I would do nothing in this situation. The problem presenter is free to ask questions.

    The problem presenter is allowed to ask questions, because of AL rule “anyone can ask anyone at any time”.

    As an AL Coach allowed PP feel free to ask questions.
