Welcome. 

Nederlands: FoolService is een Internationale Creatieve Organisatie uit Amsterdam, van Floris Koot. We begeleiden en trainen teams en organisaties, houden lezingen en brengen overal iets nieuws op activerende wijze.

Als process alchemist zet ik groepen aan het denken en of in beweging. Dat doe ik als master trainer (creativiteit, sociale intelligentie, persoonlijke ontwikkeling), coach (individueel of groepen), dagvoorzitter (icebreakers en humor) of spreker (creativiteit, Way of the Fool, spel, onderwijs uit de box ). Ik zorg dat mensen inhoud gaan beleven en zelf stappen gaan zetten.  Mijn aanpak is warm, scherp & speels en zeer adaptief in/naar het moment.  Zie ook NL

How to get unstuck and move ahead into uncertain times? How to boost learning, courage, creativity, fun in organizations? How to become more divergent, idea rich, and develop more meaning for yourself and your organization?

Simple.

Call me. 

I help find essence, new possibilities and meaning for organizations, teams and individuals. I get there through experiential learning, through (business) training, play and event design with a touch of wonder.

I activate, inspire and uplift. I boost authenticity and new possibilities of people I work with.

Methods I use include are mostly tailor made, but may include anything from world café, open space technology to rituals, management games, play design, body work, dance, theatre and more. What fits the occasion, objectives, people and context.

In my work I seek to integrate three levels (physical presence, professional outlook & social consciousness about your contribution to the whole), especially as educational innovator.

    "The Way of the Fool"

Data: 2020 has been cancelled.
Locatie: L'huis Preau, Frankrijk

Wil je veel intuïtiever worden, maar zit je denken vaak in de weg? Wil je speelser worden, maar vrees je niet serieus genoeg gevonden te worden? Wil je helpen in organisaties, maar ben je soms het overzicht kwijt, terwijl je lichaam roept: 'doe wat'. Dan is er The Way of the Fool. Hierin gaan we veel speelse oefeningen doen. Daarmee zetten we het hoofd uit en het 'hele systeem' aan. Je gaat bewuster en onbewuster voelen wat en waar dingen vast zitten en of wat je daaraan kan doen. En als je daarin vloeiend wordt, kun je niet alleen jezelf bevrijden van lasten, maar ook mensen en zelfs organisaties om je heen.

Competitive Coaching

Is it a performance? Is it an art? Is it serious coaching on stage? Then why is everybody laughing so much? 

If you want your team, your conference, your training day spiced up with two professionals in coaching and performing for an audience then this is it, sharp yet lighthearted, focusses yet playful, fun and serious at the same time. 

Charles Davies is an expert in giving people clarity, he's also a poet, a Buddhist and copywriter & consultant for organizations. He and Floris also have been opening and closing the Happy Start Up Summer Camp in England the last three years as a team. 

Floris Koot is an expert at making things experiential, intuitive jumps in workshops and coaching. He's also a theatre maker,  storyteller, trainer in organizations and blogger about psychology and our human culture.
