    I would ask the Group, from 1-10, how are we doing in terms of creating questions with the potential of exploring the problem from multiple angles?

    I would say I found that we are asking the same questions. And then I would ask what happened and what’ s the impact if this situation continued? Finally, I would ask how we can do better?

    I will ask the team if everyone observes that they are repeating on the same issue. If so, what effect will it have? So what should we do?

    As an Action Learning Coach I would intervene with the following questions: “What has been the quality of our questions?” and “What does the group gain by increasing the quality and diversity of the questions?” and then “In view of this, how do we want to proceed in this session?”

    As an Action Learning Coach I would ask the enquirer why He/She ask the questions multiple times. I would also ask to the enquirer, After a respons to his/her question, if he/she feels like his/her question has been answered.

    As an Action Learning coach I would intervene by asking the team what they think of the quality of the questions. I would ask what’s going well and what can be improved regarding the quality of the questions. With this information and realization I would let the team proceed.

    I would ask the team, What is the impact if we are spending too many time by just asking the same questions?

    I will ask the team:how relevant is this question with the problem? Score from 1-10. If we get low scores, hopefully, they could realize their misunderstanding. If they vote for high scores, I will ask the team why this question should be our question.

    As i am a coach , I would intervene at the appropriate time to ask the group,
    How are we doing well with ask the question so far ? I would ask them to answer on a scale from 1 to 10 that 1 equal lowest and 10 equal highest. And I will see the score if it below 5 I would ask “what could be the impact of this to our group? And waiting them feedback and then I will ask “what would you like to do as a team to improve this from now. I will listen and keep record their feedback and bring them back to session again. So I will monitor for another intervention if required that depend on situation.

    I would ask the group how we, as a team, were doing in terms of exploring the problem from all possible perspetives.
