    Coach could “lean-in” and check for 100% agreement on what seems to be the “clear” solution; ask: “does anyone have further questions or comments?” The coach has the remaining “conclusion” (reflection) portion of the Action Learning script that needs to be completed with the group. There is still 30-minutes of work for the team.

    We have 30 more minutes to focus on both solutions and learning. With these 2 in mind, how would the team like to proceed with the remaining time?

    As a coach I would lean in and ask the group if they believe that they have a clear solution. I would then ask the problem presenter if he thinks that he has a clear solution. I would ask, “Were you helped by this team process? If so, how.” Then I would ask, “What action will you take as a result of this session?” I would then explain to the team that they still have about 30 minutes left and I would like to ask them some questions about what they learned. I would ask the following questions: What did you do best as a group? What did you learn about problem-solving? Let’s talk about the skill that you were working on…with encouragement to each one of them. What did you learn that you can take back to your work or lives?
