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.
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..
For a while I was a professional salesmen in the solar industry and this course helped me greatly to close more deals. Understanding the fundamentals of negotiation are a necessary skill for any entrepreneur, businessman, or anyone who is looking to take their communication skills to the next level. I highly suggest this course for anyone who wants to make an income over six figures.

Basically, I'm interested in this area of learning related to negotiation. Besides, I really love this course, not that theoretical or confusing like what I had before. The examples and small tips could be useful in logical thinking and in real life. I suppose that these knowledge and skills would be applied to my study and business later. Moreover, our professor is so nice.

Es muy bueno, y el profesor es un encanto, el curso no es nada si el, muy metódico y con una mentalidad muy ágil, se explica muy bien, hace una conexión emocional de la teoría con los casos ejemplos. No es fácil hallar profesores con los que te sientas cómodo y nutrido teóricamente, este curso me gusta, llena mis expectativas, me estimula incluso me estimula a aprender mas.

Professor George Siedel is absolutely mesmerizing. I have tried online courses earlier but lost patience while watching lecture videos. Here I got captivated in the Introduction lecture itself and has to go on for binge watch all lectures, completed the course within a week. Will try to absorb the concepts more deeply by reading his book "Negotiating for Success"

Thank you so much for this course. The development and design of the content makes clear to understand a fearful topic that certainly by studying it can lead to success for the ones involved on any kind of negotiations.
I feel very lucky and grateful of having learned about negotiation matters on this course developed by University of Michigan and George Siedel.

The professor truly has knowledge about the topics reviewed in this course and inspires one to learn the content on the course. His charisma and enthusiasm gives this course an extra value for the students. He uses simple real life examples for complex topics that makes it easy for one to understand the concepts even without a previous background in these topics.

I had an amazing experience taking this course. I am an Attorney so I thought I was already a good negotiator but this course made me realize I had a lot to learn and I did. I am so happy and looking forward to using the knowledge I have acquired in real life situations. I must also mention that the tutor was amazing. Thank you so much Professor George Siedel!!!

Professor Siedel was an excellent instructor and he has inspired me to pursue my career as well, I will definitely enroll for any future courses of his for sure. Because of the course, I finally found what I want to do once I graduate from Law school. I strongly recommended this course for everyone, especially lawyers who are interested in running a business.

This was an excellent course - really well explained and filled with lots of practical examples and opportunities to reinforce your learning. I also happen to think that the format of the exam was structured such that one couldn't simply guess their way through it which means that it ultimately encouraged a level of understanding that many other MOOCs do not.
by Suhas P•
This is possibly the best course I have ever taken up. All credit to Prof. George Siedel. It has given me a deep insight into how ethically a negotiation has to be carried out.
I strongly recommend this course for Supply Chain professionals as I am one myself.
Thank you professor for your valuable advise and tips. I shall cherish this knowledge forever.

Good class, good topic for all to have exposure to. I did find the book and the videos too repetitive. Would highly recommend you pick up another book on negotiation to read along with the video's if you, like me, need the repetition of ideas but hate to feel like you are just reliving the video. I used Leigh Thompson "the truth about negotiation"

Professor George is really impressive. He has worked with quite big names in this field and this course is like learning from the best person available. It is a good choice of course.
His teaching methods are engaging. I am very busy person but I would ask no matter how much busy you are you have to look into this course if you are doing negotiation.

El curso me ha parecido brillante en su planteamiento y ejecución, y magnífico tanto por su contenido como por la forma en que se ha desarrollado por parte del profesor. Además, no se ha echado de menos que no hubiera sido presencial, dando la sensación de estar en todo momento delante del profesor, a su lado. Desde luego, es un curso que invita a

This course provides a good framework and tools for successful negotiations. I think the professor did a great job in explaining the content and providing real life scenarios.
I would have liked that the sildes provide more content in case you want to review it at a later time. But overall, I had a good and interesting time while doing the course.
As a sales person, this course helped me to look at the negotiation process in a more organized way. The topics are selected and presented in a very efficient way to ensure that learner will have a complete overview of negotiation. moreover, it give you enough introduction and motivation to go after learning about specific topics in more details.
Easily one of the best courses I have done so far. The professor is clearly very knowledgable and teaches you things in the right way. The examples he gives, the way he makes you think is something I did not expect to go so well. All in all had a great amount of learning and hope to be able to use it to the fullest in my real life situations.
