A very useful course, presented in a very simple and structured way, using an easy English language with a lot of subtitles.
You shall like and get a huge benefit from the materials and the course.
Really useful course! I learnt many new ways to influence others and protect myself from other people's influence.
P.S The cover is a deal-breaker. I joined this course after watching the intro.

The content that is shared in this is absolutely phenomenal. It might not convince your boss a a very valid qualification sometimes, (given the content names) but it will surely help you to become a better employee with more authority and autonomy over everything. I suggest anyone who take this course to look at this as a life supporting course.

Gostei muito, bastante esclarecedor. A gente, muitas vezes, vivencia essas experiências, mas sem fazer a análise de como está recebendo uma determinada influência ou influenciando uma pessoa ou situação. Vale a pena ter isso explicado e orientações de como melhorar a performance para que seja algo racional.

The presenters are explore the ideas in a crisp and professional manner, and the ideas presented have increased my confidence greatly - five stars!

This is by far the best course out of four ones in this specialization, as to me it is very practical inside engineering firms. Also, both instructors described the topics very well. The second assignment can be considered as a real exercise for currently employed individuals who are taking the course.

Very useful course, well structured and very engaging, lecturers are excellent and gave many good examples. I learned a lot of great tactics which I can use to gain power and influence in any organization and any position. I liked that they emphasized the importance of using that power for good!
Just finished the audit part of this course, all 4 weeks and its an incredible course that everyone that is dealing with people in any capacity should take. Fascinating and interesting plus will teach you a lot of power, tactics and useful ways of how to do things better.
Totally recommend it.

Good training to learn skills to focus more on your own priorities and give real examples how to get more influential but also less influential from others.
The maeterial is very well structured with summaries by the end of each chapter, it is easy to follow instructor and understandable.

I had never thought about influence as part of my professional toolkit and the positive impact it could have to my contribution as a member and/or leader of a team. This class had clear concepts and actionable items that I could put to work right away for the benefit of my organization.

Great course with many practical tools one can apply to increase their influence and create successful buy-ins. It also creates a very good understanding of different types of power and influence, which is far from being limited by the organizational hierarchy. Highly recommended!

With the right balance of time spent on videos, good amount of scientific background supported by studies and excellent practical tips to put the theory into practice!

Learned a lot with it and highly commend it! Well done.

Really great course, very informative.
Loved the videos and the quizzes at the end of each module - really helps the information to sink in
The fact that the videos had the text to go with them, was great, I could read as I was watching the video
Other classmates were interactive

This was a well structured, informative and educative topic. I have acquired great insights that will help me at personal, professional and organisation level to influence others and protect myself from negative influence. The tools provided are critical leadership assets

Very pleasant lecturing style with good visualisation of basic ideas. Hands-on approach with a range of good examples. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to understand how some people seem to end up imposing their ideas more than others - and become one of them!
by Carlos G•
Exceptional course, very easy to understand and useful in day-to-day basis.
I only would suggest to provide additional material to re-inforce understanding, practice and train techniques shown.
Great material you developed, University of Michigan team.

This course far exceeds my expectations as an influencing people course. Quite detailed, applicable to everyday context and complete too.

an exceptional course, directly usable learning material in one's work and life. great presenters and teachers. I love this course and would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who wants to or needs to influence others without manipulating or being manipulated

We are social creatures. What's life if we don't know how to interact and influence others? This course talks about the different tools we can use to persuade people, and how to protect your self from being influenced by others. I'd recommend this to anyone.
by Geoffrey S•
Great insights, very useful contents. The assignments are a good addition to the lectures & quizzes - it makes it more interactive and "forces" you to think about the content more deeply and in relation to your own experiences.

I did not expect this course to be so informative and to the point. Almost all of the course content was daily applicable at work. It gave me clarity of situations where I need to be emotionally involved but be analytically involved.
