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

The team decides they should be asking each other more questions instead of just asking questions of the problem presenter. However they continue directing all of the problems to the problem presenter.

    I would intervene the session and ask team – How are we doing on asking each other more questions? If count 1-10 – 1 is worst and 10 is excellence – How we doing about this. And then after everyone vote. Then I will ask another question – Then if we do the same pattern – How would effect the quality of teamwork.
    Then i will ask another question – How can we better doing as team? Have them decide and have agreement on the decision. Then i will reconfirm on the action they would like to take and follow on their decision.

    I would intervene in the session by asking, “How is the balance of our questions among the members of the group?” and would continue with the in-depth questions “Why is it important for everyone to participate?” and “How will we make it happen in this group?”

    As an Action Learning Coach, I would conduct a check in and ask “ How are we doing by tapping into all of the knowledge in the room .” In this way, the team can reevaluate there previous statement of asking more questions to the group and start to refocus the questions to include the other members and not only the problem presenter.

    I would intervene saying: the group agreed that questions should be asking each other more questions instead of just asking questions of the problem presenter. What is your evaluation on how are we doing with that? How should we improve “asking to each other”?
