After the first months of our Trainee Program, we were super excited to be reunited again as the whole Trainee Batch at our second Central Event in lovely and hidden Roggenbeuren and also to get to know the ZF Board of Management in Friedrichshafen afterwards.
Now You might be wondering where Roggenbeuren is and why we all want to go there; that is actually quite simple. Roggenbeuren is a 30-minute drive away from Friedrichshafen, Germany. Besides seeing each other again, we were also very keen on our upcoming training for the week. The topic of our training was “challenging communication settings”. Especially in a group with people from 6 different countries across 3 continents, this training promised to be an exciting task. We had two professional coaches from an external company, who did a great job designing a training that covered the theoretical part of the topic and included interactive tasks. This resulted in intense discussions through multiple hands-on learning activities and one-on-one interviews with our trainee colleagues to learn about positive questioning. The whole trainee batch was able to learn more about themselves, how to interact in groups, and how to deal with communication problems in business environments.
