    I would intervene and ask, “Team, what is happening?”

    I will follow up with the following questions:

    ” How are we doing in terms of responding to questions asked, on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 1 being low and 10 being high)?”

    “How does this affect our team effectiveness if this continues?”

    “What can we do to make this better?”

    I would intervene with 3 questions:

    “It seems like we are asking several questions in a row without statements to respond to them, as per the first ground rule of action learning. Does it seem that way to you too?”

    “What would the impact be if this continues?”

    “How do you want to continue forward?”

    I would intervene and say:
    “Hi team, it seems that there are many questions asked and left unanswered. As per the first ground rule of action learning – “Statements only in response to questions. Anyone can ask questions.”
    – “what will happen if the team continues to have questions in response to questions”?”
    – “how will this impact in the team’s effectiveness in problem solving?”
    – “what do you want to agree on as a team to make this better?”
    – “ok, who has the next question?”

    For this situation, as an Action Learning Coach, I would intervene with some questions to team for their response and their self-recognize to improve the situation:
    “Hello team, it seems like that team is very interested with the sponsored problem so we are asking a series of questions with no time given for the answer. Does the team think that this is a good way to collect the information?”
    “Hello PP, how do you feel when you receive a series of questions?”
    “What can we do to improve the situation better when delivering the questions to the team?”
