My clients have always enjoyed my internships, my ability to lead groups, the ability to interact with each other in a well-defined setting. So yes, I will still offer group workshops, but adapted to my new approach. I call them bootcamps. I’m calling those “bootcamps”. As their form is not yet completely defined, I present them in the form of questions and answers.
François De Kock.
What is a bootcamp?
Literally, this is a group workout. The term is of military origin : the bootcamp was used to prepare soldiers or new recruits to their mission, under the aegis of a sergeant instructor. Since then, the term has been adopted in all circles. An example in the movieworld that I know well : actors engaged in a new film participate in a boot camp led by a specialist in the subject of the upcoming film, in which they learn to sing and dance together, or to wield weapons for an action movie, or to behave like spies for a thriller. The boot camp is systematic in all the televised competitions like The Voice, X-Factor, or “My country has talent” : the novice singers are coached there, often in group, by confirmed artists. I myself participated in a bootcamp offered by a company that organizes fundraising for companies. You get the picture ?
What will be a bootcamp as part of « My new life »?
It will be a workshop in personal development, certainly, but not as we are used to in this environment. It will not be a question of discovering you, of understanding what lives in you, and so on. In the bootcamp of “My new life”, you will practice on how to lead your new life according to what our accompaniment will reveal. The bootcamp is therefore to be seen as a complement to your overall work with me.
An example ? Imagine that you are a little timid and that your new life requires you to develop persuasive qualities. You will find yourself in a workshop in which you will have to convince the other participants. It could be a fun workshop, where you reveal things about yourself whereby the other participants must guess if you lie or tell the truth while asking questions.
Another example ? Your new life leads you out of social norms in your intimate relationships. One could imagine a role play exploring all kinds of intimate relationships.
What will be specific to our bootcamps is that all participants will participate in the subjects brought by each other. A group never really comes together by chance, and everyone will learn as much from his own subjects as from the others.
Why this name?
Firstly because the term bootcamp is already known, including in other languages than English. Secondly, because the choice of a simple English name permits to conduct the workshops in all languages in one go. It should be called “training camp”, but it’s less glamorous than bootcamp. And lastly – and most importantly – because my bootcamps will automatically be conducted in three languages: French, Flemish (or Dutch) and English. So we needed a usable name for all the same events.
Who is the bootcamp for ?
Given that we approach the practice of what we have discovered beforehand, this type of training is primarily destined for people who are already engaged in the work – even if briefly – with me. But this is not an absolute obligation.
At the time of registration, participants must mention the subjects they wish to improve or put into practice in their lives. Indeed, it is these topics that will induce the themes of the course and will form the basis of our workshops.
Where will these bootcamps take place?
They will be held in the beautiful city of Ghent, at half an hour from Brussels
