As an Action Learning Coach how would you handle the following situation:
One team member begins to make fun of one point the group is discussing. Initially, this is creative and brings happiness to the group.
– Then this joking is repeated sequentially among team members … a competition emerges to come up with the most creative joke
– The group looses concentration and focus on the problem they are suppose to be working on …. They are primarily focused on clowning with each other!
