Scenario: Process Question

As an action learning coach, how would you handle the following situation:

A team member asks a process question. For instance – I’ve noticed we have all the managers on one side of the table and everyone else on the other. Did anyone else notice this? What’s the impact of that on how we are working together? What do we want to do about it?

    As a coach, I would’t make an intervention until someone in the group asked me about it. I would let them respond and resolve between themselves how to deal with the situation. If someone asked me what to do, I would ask, in a question format, to remember the only two rules of Action Learning.

    I would wait and observe how the group responded to his/her process question. Depending on the response I would make an intervention, so the group would have their learning maximized.

    I would not intervene. He would let the group respond. After all it is a discomfort that may or may have a foundation and may add to the learning for the group. My intervention would only be in case of conflict because of some discomfort generated.

    I would listen how the group reacts and wouldn’t intervene in this moment. I would take it as a sign that the group is very aware and is dealing realy well looking from meta-position and improving the quality of their work themselves.
