Scenario: Windows

As an action learning coach, how would you handle the following situation: The team is working on a porch with windows around three sides. As the session starts two participants stand up at the same time. One walks to one side of the room and closes a window, the other walks to the other and opens a window.

    As an action learning coach, I would make an intervention
    I would name the situation: I have noticed that X closed the window, and Y opened the second window. How do you feel about this.
    Next I would ask how we are doing as a team on a scale 1- 10?
    What are we doing well?
    What can we do better?

    As an Action Learning Coach, I would do an intervention. In addition to the 2 main principles in AL, the group sets all standards. I would say something like this: “I see that one person just closed the window while the other opened it. What would you like to do as a group at the moment?”

    facing this situation, as an action learning couch I would intervence by asking
    1. If the team member notice that there is one person closed the windons and the other person opened the other windows ?
    2. Then I will ask what the team member feel about it ?
    3. After that I will ask what is the impact to the effectiveness to team member ?
    4. How can we do better ?

    I would say: ‘Did anyone else noticed someone closing a window and another one opening a window? How is this impacting us as a group?’ If everybody is okay with that, I would let the session continue. If the group has a problem with it I would ask ‘How do we want to handle this?’.
