An excellent foundational course on managing people. I particularly appreciated the academic theory serving as the backbone of the course. Professor Raes was also especially good. Highly recommended!
Awesome cause here, that makes understanding how people behave and to motivate them. It has changed my way of thinking and for me to judge less as to why people do what they do. I recommend this all.

Great course! Touches on several theories that explain individuals and team behaviour. By being aware of that one would be more prepared to identify gaps and act on corrections in order to have the best team engagement and performance.

Course deals with many interesting theories about motivation, leadership, teamwork and culture. However, it lacks practical examples and case studies (there is only one in the last week). I liked the required reading material, but I did not find videos very engaging.

It is theoretical, which is nice, but more practical example like case study would have kindled my interest to go for the certificate.

This course had too much theory, and very little (if any) practical information on managing people. If you just like hearing theories on management that are 20+ years old, this may be right for you, but if you truly hope to gain a better understanding on how to lead others, try something else. I even found an error on one of the tests (regarding Blanchard's Situational Leadership theory, which I know quite well), making me wonder how accurate the rest of the information was.
I'm assigning two stars because I did enjoy hearing some of the theories, so the course was not a complete waste of time and money, but I don't feel that I got much out of it in the long run.

Good content with specially made video, but could have borrowed a book at the local library for free. I had technical issues where my assignments were not accepted even though I followed instructions fully. There was no response from the school on the issue and worse, they charged $79 extra without prior consent, and wouldn't refund.

Really good oveview on the theoretical aspects. The assignment at the end is a good way to reason ont he theory and try to put it into practice.
The only thing I miss with the type of course is the interaction witht he teaher and the other students, as sometimes a question can generates really interestng disucssions and bring in more ideas.
Some reccomendations on future readings to deepen the knowledge in certain fields would also be nice.

I liked the course a lot. Professor Anneloes Raes was fabulous in presenting the material in a very simple way. Compare to other courses on people management and leadership this was very practical clearly demonstrating how we can apply in our work different concepts and theories. This was indeed very useful.

This course me entirely new perspectives about people's behavior as well as my own. I received great insights about Motivation, Leadership, Teamwork and Culture. Prof. Raes is a fantastic teacher. She made the entire course a fun learning experience. Thank you Coursera, IESE Business School and Prof. Raes.
In my opinion the information that is provided in this course is significantly accurate in terms of social psychology, emotional theories in psychology and etc. and I realy enjoyed the way that the whole course gathered to provide the high educational resources for anyone with any background of studies.

I really enjoyed this course! This course has provided very in-depth insights into four keys area such as motivation, leadership, culture and teamwork which I personally think it would be really helpful in my work. Thank you Professor Anneloes and IESE.

The course is extremely useful. I especially value the concentration of material over learning time ratio. Very intense. I wish only we could have lecture notes in a PDF format, so that we could come back to them wehn we forget something in time.

Very useful course. I really appreciated each part of the course and the teaching was extremely clear. I personally had it at 1.25x speed because I found it a bit slow but the speed function really solves the "problem". Thanks for the course!

This was a well planned course on Organizational Management. I gained insight into how to recognize the different forming structures that organizations may use, and what are the pros and cons of each type.

As a Leader with 10+ years of leadership experience, the course is an eye opener and shows many different perspectives on how to lead teams efficiently and how to understand and interpret certain behaviors.
by Sankeira B•
I learned quite a bit about proper leadership and the best ways to handle teams. A lot of theories I never considered with team building, leadership and cultural realities in the work place.

The course has provided some useful theoretical perspectives and practices that allow us to perform our work better, especially in managing people.

Excelente curso, la articulación de contenidos esta bien integrada y la bibliografía recomendada fue util para profundizar los temas.

I liked the theoritical part. As there was a lot of different sources and references, this course offers a good summary / overview.

I have really learned a lot from this course. We got to know about the attitudes and behaviour of employees in the work environment.
