Extremely insightfull and practical course,
Touches on a number of aspects of leadership in today's world. I found the reading material very useful, sometimes voluminous but extremely relevant.
This course will certainly help you know each stepping stone during your leadership journey.
Know the crisis and how we can sail through it, and kind of Leadership traits.
Kudos to the team.

I have found the course to be relevant especially in this era. The COVID-19 pandemic has proven that Leadership in the 21st Century is not only needed by established leaders, but necessary for aspiring leaders now and in the future.
I have been impressed with use of videos and cases to reinforce the instructional contents and this augurs well for the future of online, self-paced courses. Some links for the Wall Street Journal were not accessible, but this did not impact negatively on the lessons learned.
I enjoyed the course and would recommend it to other colleagues.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was really interesting and brought in lots of different thought leadership, references and I loved the SMA Jim Barton story that enabled me to walk through day to day leadership situations. The final submission allowed me to create a solid framework for my future leadership plan.
It says the final presentation takes 2 hours to complete - it took me 22 hours, but I wanted to do a thorough job befitting of everything I had learned. I would urge people not to rush the final submission, but enjoy it, craft it, be proud of it!

A Par Excellence Program which had an unique design with context setting by Professor and enacting the whole life of SMA by all actors at Pennsylvania which was a practical organization for all of us as Students. A reel life sharing real life world of an organization pitted against a world trend setter so much so we saw ourselves as part of SMA competing against Boeing and Airbus. Accolades to entire team at CBS for such a massive role out. Thank you and Gracias

Very good course in the world of leadership training and tune ourselves to the 21 century organizations. The case studies taken across the businesses help students to gain insights in to the board rooms and influential policy making and come to executing philosophies etc..
Only draw back is the many final course assignments are copied and submitted as work, one needs to check for plagiarism before evaluating others.

Leadership in 21st Century Organizations is wonderful course. It has given thoughtful insights of today's VUCA world. Course structured very well with simulated case study, which gives insights of minor things. New concepts, decision making strategy, collaboration, team building, communications, finance, quality, conflict management and many more things has been learnt from the course. Enjoyed fully.

The course is very good for someone who is interested in learning Leadership skills. The unique way of showing the skills and learnings through Episodes was great. Also the additional material used for external reading is great. Some of the articles needed subscription which should have been somehow handled within the course. Also the duration required for the course is longer than mentioned.

Excellent course! The video presentation of SMA and Jim Barton were a great way to see the material come to life. All examples were relevant and made absorbing the content easier. The conversations in the discussion threads were enlightening and reinforced the material for each module. This course is on par with the leadership courses I took during my MBA program. 10/10 would recommend!

Absolutely brilliant! The case study of Jim Barton, CEO of SMA, made the learning so much richer. The videos of the facilitators and the adjunct learning material were superb. The reflective exercises and discussions were really appreciated. I learned a lot. Thanks to the course developers and facilitators for making me a lifelong learner of leadership skills.

A very comprehensive Leadership development program. Course content is very relevant, detailed and updated. I personally had good learning from the program. Excellent instructors. But few links were not not working and some asked for subscribing at a homepage (what I personally disliked a little bit) but all over, a great course.
