    I would intervene and ask ” Team, what do you notice is the nature of question asked?
    If response is process question, I would ask; “Team, which role in AL would ask the process question?”
    And if the response is “the coach”, I would ask “what is the impact if a team member asks the process question instead of the coach?”

    I ask “Team, what are we learning here?”

    When it happens during 1st/2nd session with the team, where the team learns AL as form of working, I would intervene by saying: “Let me interrupt for a while. I would like to bring your attention to the question that has just been asked. (usually here I use quotation as exact as possible ) What it brings to the team that the team member asks such question?” and than I would continue with “What do we learn out of the situation?” (all communication would go in the direction of the team interpreting what happened & understanding of the impact on their work)
