While the period encourages savings, co-development may seem to be an appropriate method for developing employees in a company at a lower cost. Indeed, with or without a “professional” facilitator (because it must be recognized that with time and practice, leading codevelopment can even become a full-fledged activity for some), the operation is  interesting.

Perspectives on the pursuit of a co-development group in self-animation, based on extracts from the work by Payette et Champagne: ‘The Professional Co-Development Group’


Who has never been bored in a codevelopment session? Maybe the one who doesn’t do much … and more! But for facilitators, codev enthusiasts, addicted participants who experience it regularly, boredom can sometimes arise.

Discover in this article, 6 virtues of boredom in codev!



To call codev something that is not, is first to discredit the method itself and all those who apply it properly. They come up against interlocutors who answer:

“The codev? No thanks, we tested it and it was a disaster “…


For several months now, we have been forced to work remotely, it has become anchored in our daily lives. And while videoconferencing tools are widely used for meetings with colleagues, many feel tired more quickly, notice a lack of energy, a “fed up”, which intensifies more and more. But where does this fatigue come from?



Indeed, with training and practice, the facilitator can identify the following pitfalls: 1.
Presenting a “fake” subject for fear of opening up to others, 2. Presenting a subject which is not actually actionable, 3. Presenting a subject which the participant doesn’t actually want the group to help with or act on, 4. Presenting a subject which cannot be addressed because it provokes too much emotion, etc.


Can the Codev be dangerous ?

Because the codev by its framework induces trust, confidentiality and benevolence, we are open to others. This opening exposes the so-called “client” of the session. Without the benevolence and respect for the operating rules of the group, a session can quickly turn sour: loss of self-confidence, feeling of humiliation, …

It is rare that participants are not satisfied at the end of a co-development session: we share ideas, points of view, daily life, difficulties: it feels good! But it is insufficient. Codevelopment is much more than just that and it is a shame to exploit only part of it by limiting oneself to “solving” complex situations.


The professional codevelopment group: What is it?

The founders of the method evoke the benefits of “codev” by saying that it allows “to train when you do not have time”. In fact, each participant arrives at the session with a professional situation in mind on which he wishes to work: problematic, concern, project, …


THE philosophy of small steps

I don’t know your point of view, but sometimes I have the impression of being tossed like a bottle in the sea on the waves. Time flies, deadlines dictate priorities and ultimately we act, we do, without taking the time to stop and watch.

On reading this article, I suggest you take a deep breath to ask yourself a few questions, and who knows, see the past year in a different light.


Our solution: SquareMeeting

You know ViTi-Coaching for its online codevelopment platform SquareMeeting. Indeed, it was through codevelopment that in 2015 we set sail. In 2017, on the strength of an initial two-year experience, we developed the uses of our platform. Today we are aware of the stake represented by the quality of remote exchanges and this depends largely on the tools used and the way to use them.


In praise of the instruction


Setting the framework, defining the rules of the game and of the group, this is the basics of the facilitator.

Let us measure to what extent the instruction and its understanding by all are vectors of
success in achieving goals in a group?

from distance to face-to-face when we have always led only remotely

My encounter with codevelopment

I discovered the Payette and Champagne method: The Professional Codevelopment Group by ViTi. This is the startup that I joined three years ago. ViTi has developed a platform dedicated to facilitating remote codevelopment. At the beginning, I participated in the discovery sessions organized by the founder.


E-codev to replace virtual classes

To learn is to learn to act, not just to understand. A training begins when the theoretical transfer of knowledge ends and its practical application in reality becomes effective.

The anchoring of the theoretical contributions of the trainings in practice is the key performance indicator of these trainings.

Free up remote meetings

Despite technical progress, we still end up preferring face to face over distance. Is it wasted effort to try to reproduce the content of the “face-to-face”?

At ViTi, we have decided not to try to reproduce face-to-face in our remote facilitation solution. We offer another experience. Find out in this article what made us love distance and why.


What effects of digital technology on the role of trainers and on learning?

(…) Trainers too are called upon to rethink their place. Online course platforms are growing. It is not difficult today to train and learn “on your own”. But the resources are infinite and the first role of the trainer is to guide his learners to the right resources.

For a codevelopment facilitator, it’s the same thing! In this article, discover the essential checklist for any facilitator.


Gathering in the community of codevelopers

Some codevelopment practitioners in France and internationally who have opposed distancing, are now revisiting these convictions. This is real recognition and appreciation for all face-to-face facilitators who have for a few years taken the step of distancing themselves to expand their offer.
