Enjoyed the learning through Coursera and this is one of the wonderful learning experience. Changed my belief of online courses will not meet the standards of Class room training. New skills and techniques learned and easy to understand and apply in our day today routine and can show case the uniqueness among others. Learning after immediate assignment with action plan improved the further understanding. Further motivated to do more Online courses after this. Thanks for my Enterprise to given the opportunity to learn and apply through Coursera.

The information and materials are SPECTACULAR; ELITE. And the quizzes were great and on point. But the Coursera component of peer review is a massive pain in the ass. I feel like I am working FOR Coursera in my grading. I like the rubrics, but I'm quite sure this problem has not in any way been solved. This is my third Coursera class. Almost always the same experience. It is so close to transformationally amazing. Yet falls flat with the peer review process. You MUST figure out how to weed out the game players.

I learned many useful ideas during this course, and was able to use some of them with my team right away. I also picked up much future reading material, including research papers cited during the course. It's definitely a science based and effective approach to management. It would be nice if all the additional suggested material was included, but regardless, the content in the core of the modules is great. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to improve their team performance.

It was very informative and exciting to study by remembering what I learned in my MBA course. Professor Thompson was energetic and clear about the points. Also, the coverage of this course was very wide. Usually, each of Leadership, Team management or Negotiation may form a single subject. What was challenging for me to digest the course contents was lack of slides but only online recorded lectures with some captions in the video. It is better if the course slides are shared.
by Hope K•
I like the short quizzes throughout the course. They kept me engaged and served as excellent milestones/goals. In a previous course I was able to download the slides, this was not available in this class. Although there were not many slides, it is a helpful resource. I hope to use the discussion feature in future courses to see what my peers are thinking. I learned a great deal from reviewing my peers submissions and seeing their perspective. Great class!

Leigh Thompson was a very engaging teacher and I appreciated her personal examples of teams she has worked with methods she used to help them improve. This course provided me with language and tools that I can take back to my workplace to help my team work more efficiently. This course helped lay the foundation of valuable information I needed to know to move forward in my career and made me more curious about team dynamics.

This is a great program and if you need course moderators/mentors, I would be interested in applying. I've been a Coursera course moderator/mentor for the last couple of years with the University of Minnesota's Human Resources program and Wesleyan University's Social Psychology program and have really enjoyed it. I also teach online college courses. Thank you for a great learning experience. Tom Moyer

Excellent leadership course that helps to further what I knew when serving as an executive facilitator; I hope to move back into an assistant chief of staff position where I can utilize what I know and what I have learned in the course.
This course also helped expanded negotiations and leadership development under a different light for myself.
Thank you for an excellent course!

Excellent course in terms of content and suggested reading. It could be even better if some reading materials could be ready to download directly for free as part of course. I missed some academic support staff as well as some technical issues regarding submissions.
Overall, great course. I am looking forward to explore the MMM program at Northwestern in 2018.

I fee like I "know" High Performance Collaboration. Thank you again.

Wow! This course is top of the line. Excellent instructor, engaging, who knows how to hit multiple Intelligences like a speeding ball traveling straight for the bat. Thank you to the upmost, such a grand opportunity. Like walking the shoes of a stranger "I learned things "I never knew, I never knew". What a blessing! Strickly a four star, and 5 extras!

I learned a lot during this course. I think if you actually take the time to pay attention and don't over crize you'll find the course a but rewarding. The grading for this course and all courses on this site I call to question especially when some may not fully understand the assignment. Overall, I appreciate the learning opportunity.

It was great learning from the Professor and putting what I learned in practice via assignments. Now I have a different perspective at work. I also admired how captivating the teaching skills of the Professor! Thanks a lot both to Coursera and the Northwestern University for providing us, the life-time learners, with this opportunity!
by Felipe T M•
The course is very complete, with high level content. The professor Leigh Thompson is effective in communicating the concepts and the exercises really help us to understand the presented themes. In my opinion, the better parts were Negotiation and Teamwork, showed with very deep explanations. I strongly reccomend this course!

This was an outstanding course. One of the most enriched contents I have come across in Coursera.

Brilliantly made. Thank you!!

learnt new things is like Leadership is about influencing others to reach established goals. As such, it’s one of the most critical roles in any company. Leadership maintains the vision, values, culture, objectives, and standards for the company, and when leadership is in doubt, the company is in trouble.
