Probably the best course videos Ive come across. Professor George I believe is an amazing teacher...the way he gets the concept across to students by simple and constant examples is worth mentioning..
There are a lot of real cases to explain the theory, steps to create a negotiation strategy and tips to become a better negotiator. You don't have to be born negotiator, you can learn the methodology.

I loved this course! The material is well thorough and presented in a well organized manner. I learned practical skills that I can use immediately. The course experience also helped to broaden my perspectives on how to approach negotiations, more specifically, the effectiveness of the interest-based approach. While familiar with win/win concepts, still a position-based approach was used. I also like the decision tree tool and calculating the BATNA. This provides a value-based outlook on your options.
Finally, I enjoyed the challenge of the course and exam. In order to pass the exam, you really needed to know the material and I believe that this will add value to the programs offered on coursera.org.

Professor Siedel is a great teacher, no doubt. He shares his lifelong experience and teaches a great variety of techniques that most of the students don't know. The course is a great medium to sharpen the negotiation and communication skills, which is very much needed at both the business and diplomacy. The content of this course, quality of the final quiz and obviously the excellence of professor Siedel indicate the reason behind higher ranking of the University of Michigan. After this course, I hope to pursue either masters or doctorate in future at the University of Michigan under feasible scholarship.

I really liked this course. This is a good refresher or a good introduction to deal making or solving disputes in business life as well as personal life. I really wish it could have a 2nd part or go into more indepth cases, I wish it would use the vides to explain more real life cases, unfortunately the videos cannot be that long. I would highly recommend this course to those who want to refresh some of the lessons that you went over in Business Law class or for those who want to learn some of the basic laws governing deal making and business disputes. The teacher makes the class fun and entertaining.

I think it's a great course that allows an individual to develop his skills and practice in everyday negotiation. It has a unique approach in visualization and towards the results you want to do in a negotiation and asks you a lot of questions: Should you negotiate? What is your goal? Is it legal? Ethical?
Prof. Seidel videos are easy to watch and learn and makes you feel as if you were inside one of his classes,he shares his vast knowledge and experience and lets us practice a real life negotiation between students.
I also bought his book, which summarizes and explains other aspects of the course.

The course is very practical because you have negotiations in your whole life, negotiate in family, at work, etc. The course outline is very clear and i even find a study partner in Turkey. It is really a pleased experience.

The material covered was very useful and the organization of the course was exceptional. The videos tend to move slow at time but I really enjoyed this course and fully intend to put these practices into action very soon.

This course teaches a skill that is crucial to working relationships, and is presented in an interesting and engaging manner. Everyone should have knowledge of this skill, and this course is an excellent way to get it!

Very good course.
It was focused mostly on US-based low, so not everything applies to business in my country.
I would be more than happy if I find training/hints section extended in the future.
Anyway, I really enjoyed it

This was a very interesting course. It definitely helped me improve my negotiation skills, and it absolutely taught me a huge amount of material that I didn't know about. Great classes, very straightforward and clear.

Participating in this course was a remarkable experience. Mr Shield is a great professor who structured the course in the most effective way possible. I feel 100% a better negotiator after completing this course.

Changed my life. Literally. I have saved so much money on things I would have paid full price for, without using tricks or manipulations; rather, strategies like anchoring, among many others. Highly recommend!
by Janetta M•
What a mild mannered Professor, whose easy to follow. He gave ample examples to reinforce the concepts. Good course, but like with anything else, if you put in the work you’ll retain more and get better results!
by Stefano M Z•
Extremely useful course giving scientific framework to a discipline that was much assumed as "born-with" rather than to be mastered. As marketing professional, I found the course very on point for my daily work.
