Make good teams even better

What is co-development?

The professional co-development group is a development approach for people who believe they acan learn from and  teach each other to improve their work practices.

Individual reflection and group discussions are facilitated by a structured consultation exercise focused on the issues currently facing participants …

A structured method

The active training groups comprises of between 4 and 8 people who are accompanied by a facilitator who ensures the smooth running of the process.

One by one, the participants play the role of client to present the aspect of their practice that they wish to improve or the questions raised by the progress of their project.

The other participants act as consultants to assist the “client” and enrich their understanding and their ability to act on the presented subject.

The discussions among the members of the group are structured by a specific consultation process.

The characteristics of co-development

  • A learning community based on active listening, speaking, reflection and action

  • The implementation of collective intelligence

  • Structured and guided interaction

  • A 6-step process that is simple, subtle and demanding

  • A shared discussion and practice forum

  • Practice built over time

For whom ?
Peer groups, whether they are leaders or not, within the same company or different companies, who are motivated and wish to benefit from a useful and enriching cross-functional vision of their work practices.


The goal of this innovative method is to take a step back and reconsider your professional practice, how to solve problems and lead projects.

It also promotes:

Individual professional development: each person can discover how they work, their problem-solving limitations and their overview of situations, their areas of progress concerning their relations with their colleagues, their ability to listen, etc.

Shared cultural development: learning to work more cooperatively and developing cross functionality


The group interaction is structured according to a 6-step process:

1. Presentation of a problem, a project or a professional concern
2. Clarification of the question: questioning to obtain factual information
3. Establishment of the Consulting contract
4. Exploration: comments, reactions and suggestions from the consultants
5. Summary and action plan
6. Conclusion: evaluation and assimilation of learning by all parties

This work, regardless of the group, should be understood as a continuous and progressive process.
