Codevelopment groups

What is Codevelopment ?


Codevelopment is a collective training approach to improve one's professional practice.

Claude Champagne and Adrien Payette, designers of the method define it as "a development approach for people who believe they can learn from each other in order to improve their practice. The reflection carried out, individually and in groups, is favored by an exercise of structured consultation that addresses issues currently experienced by participants. "

This innovative approach is not based on top-down trainer-participant content. It builds learning on the practice and experience of the group as well as on collective intelligence.



Training modalities


  • An approach based in continuity in a short and distant format: A group of 8 peers meeting remotely over 10 sessions of 2 hours and 15 minutes each and spaced three weeks apart. The group facilitation is led by a certified Codevelopment facilitator who will garantor of the methodology and group posture.


  • An approach focused on the fundamental issues of the participants: At each session, one of the members will have prepared a subject relating to a project, a problem or a real concern and for which the group will help him/her to take a step back and find new leads to explore and take action. The goal is not problem solving, instead sharing perspectives allowing reflection and decision making.


  • Access to a confidential and benevolent space which, through a learning community, allows you to step back and learn by working on the real subjects of your professional practice.

A winning method for all

"The client progresses, takes a step back from his situation, digs deeper into his problematic, multiplies his perspectives, finds new solutions, sifts through everything he has received in order to put in place a concrete action plan, motivating and realistic. Consultants learn to listen, question, help, wait before rushing for advice, accept different practices and opinions from theirs and focus on the client. The group is enriched, each one learns to give and receive, to interact in good understanding. "

"I participated in a co-development group facilitated by Fabiola. It was a great experience that helped us enormously and enabled us to see more clearly the specific issues that were limiting our projects. Fabiola was very attentive, caring and facilitated the workshops with great professionalism. She also explained the technique and the functioning of co-development in a very educational way. I recommend her with no reserves."
