    I will support them as they move forward in the session by being present in the discussion, while acknowledging them as they progress with the session. I will process the team’s learning to see how they will bring the action steps and experience back to their workplace.

    I would support them in problem solving and would observe how they move towards working out the tangible outcomes of their deep problem exploration and intervene when I see the opportunity for the group to learn.

    I would not really interfere as this is the desired outcome from an action learning session. However, I will adhere to the script and will ensure that ground rules are being followed during the session.

    As their coach I will intervene and use the learning opportunity to enhance what they are doing extremely well. I will ask them on what they doing well as an individual and as a team and how can this further enhance the effectiveness of the session. Lastly at the end, I will ask the team how they can apply the things they did well back in their daily jobs and even in on their personal lives.

    I would continue to support the team in their discussion. Since the team has been working quite well, so I may put my focus more on their personal leadership skills development, and see if the team members could really develop such targeted skills during the discussion. Of course, I will keep observing and intervening if there is any learning opportunity for the group, and how they can develop well on their action steps.
