    As the Action Learning Coach, I would first ask the team with a show of hands if everyone is in agreement. After I see everyone’s hands up, I would first ask each member of the team how the outdoor atmosphere would benefit the team. I would then proceed with another question on what would be the impact on the effectiveness of the meeting. Eventually I would get them to reflect on the team’s input and they make their final decision.

    I will ask each member to respond on relocation decision. If all agree then I ask what would be the impact on action learning process. Will relocation prove to be distracting for the team.

    In this situation I would ask the team:
    -When we propose to move outside, what assumption, worries or expectations do we have?
    -What impact will it have if we move outside now?
    – What shall we do to support the PP more efficiently?
    -What’s your key learning from this discussion?

    As an Action Learning Coach, I’ll address the issue as follow.

    – I observed we’re discussing to relocate the meeting venue.
    – What’s the impact to the team efficiency if we move outside to a picnic table?
    – How can we make the decision to enhance the team efficiency?
