Last week all the trainees met up in Amsterdam for the fourth seminar. The three first days we were working with personal development. We talked about values, thoughts and behavior. The part that I found the most interesting was when we discussed the DISC-model, which is a model that describes different personalities. The week before, we had all done a computer based test about our behaviors. We also sent out the same test to family, friends and work mates to see if they have the same view of us as we do. It was fun to see how well the model described us and how you could recognize yourself in different behaviors.

Even if the days were very intense, we did have some time for socializing. Vattenfall has a national trainee program in Amsterdam and we met up these trainees for a nice dinner. We also had time for a boat tour on the cozy canals of Amsterdam.  

On Thursday we went to visit the Nuon office, which is the Vattenfall office in Amsterdam. There we had a presentation about the history of Nuon and an about wonders. I also held a presentation about nuclear power and radiation which was very appreciated by the other trainees. I enjoy giving lectures and explaining how things function so it was fun to do it.   

Thursday afternoon we took the train to Brussels in order to visit the Vattenfall office and the European parliament on Friday. To sum everything up I must say that it was an intense but interesting week and I am looking forward to meet everybody again during the next seminar in Copenhagen in May.
