- I actually thought it was a very nice organisation
from the beginning until the moment right now.
We received a lot of upfront information for preparation.
I really love the network exercise.
It also made me think about who to send my
feedback sheets to and I received quite some nice
positive feedback from colleagues and what I especially
liked are the reading cases that we received as preparation.
I think the most important key takeaway from the programme
for me is just the overall notion of everybody has biases,
we do, I do, the colleagues do.
So to be more aware of that and a lot of different concepts
that we learned during those three days of the programme.
Quite interesting for me the negotiation part.
We always assume that as a person regardless of female or
male, we negotiate only in certain situations but
obviously we negotiate every day through the whole day
so that was quite interesting to see.
What was quite interesting to me, maybe because it was
also an ING internal programme, we met with colleagues
from six different countries and nationality wise
it was actually even more so for me the network, certainly.
But other really different concepts, for example,
how to structure if you prepare for your preparation
for your meetings or for your speech but also, again,
as I said, negotiation's really what they told us is
preparation is key and always have a couple of things
as kind of a plan B.
So what is your walk away point?
What would you like to negotiate and another what
kind of things you would like to talk about so for me
definitely in my role is quite an interesting concept
and I'm looking forward to test it out.
