    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.
