Personal development

The third and last column of each Trainee program which takes 10% of your working time is the personal development. During each assignment the whole Trainee group gets introduced to a new development topic. Those are communication, advisory skills and personal effectiveness. In several sessions you are introduced to the theory, dig deeper with your fellow Trainees and put it all into practice with and actor as well as in your daily work with individual challenges. Next to that you have the chance to individually learn and improve soft and hard skills by choosing courses from our TenneT Academy. Thanks to the close ties with the other Trainees you will also learn from them by sharing you experiences and thoughts.

Find here a short story of our Trainee Ivo about his visit to the BDEW congress.

"The personal development is the most energy giving but also most energy taking part. No day for me without personal development and learning. That´s an awesome gift and offers me chances I haven´t expected. It can be sometimes really “exhausting” but worth it! But you definitely need to engage in it."

Anna Schreiber, Supply Chain Management Trainee Germany

"Basically the most important part of the Traineeship. You have to enter openminded, because you never know what main messages you will take from these sessions. It taught not only a lot about myself, (e.g. how I work & how I react in certain situations) but also a lot about other people and how to deal with certain situations. The more energy you put in, the more you will receive and thus the more growth you have as an individual. Also you connect on a deeper level with other Trainees."

Aernout Klokgieters, Trainee Netherlands
