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.

Siedel is obviously knowledgable and highly respected and has a pleasant, engaging lecturing style. At first, I was apprehensive about the House on Elm Street exercise. However, I ended up learning about home sales and putting some of the skills I had learned in class to use, both of which were great. I also enjoyed working with my partner and getting to know some of the other students, all of whom live in places more or less different from the United States. Definitely a value, considering that the course itself is completely free!

Professor Siedel makes even the most complicated legal jargon simple to understand, to the extent that as a high-school student, I didn't need to Google individual terms to find out their meanings even once!
I highly appreciate the way he has structured this course, as I entered it feeling that negotiation may be out of my league (academically, I have a background primarily in physics, chemistry and math) but as I finish it today, I am confident that armed with a few more practical negotiation sessions, I'll be able to hold my own!

Negotiation skills are very important for personal and professional life. Our guru , Our Professor George Siedel Sir has brought life to this course through real life examples, case studies, and even I came to know of how a negotiation, mediation takes place in reality. I am always excited to hear Siedel Sir's voice, his explanation , humour, important lessons for life. I loved the Golden rule: "Treat others the way you want to be treated". Sir I would personally like to greet you, thank you for sharing knowledge. .

This course has been articulated really well to reach out to all experienced skilled personals in Sales & Marketing field.
This course helped me to have a different outlook on Negotiation skills even though having more than 20 years of experience in Sales and Marketing .
BATNA, Decision Tree, Create a Contract, Close a Contract, Arbitration & Mediation were few of the topics that enthused me a lot.
Thank you Coursera, Thank you University of Michigan ..Thank you Mr. George Siedel

I really liked the professor and the materials of the class. He has a great personality and he breaks everything down in a way anyone can understand it. This review comes from the perspective of a person who has never formally taken a class in negotiation. The examples and videos were also extremely interesting and fun too. I took this class alone during COVID 19, so I didn't have a partner to do some of the exercises. However, I still have a lot of fun taking the class.

Generally one of the best courses I have ever had. Material is very well prepared, perfectly structured and presented. A lot of memorable examples included. The course helps You to look on the very common processes and situations from a different angle, challenges You. Maybe is to overconfident :), but I believed I became a bit better person after finishing this course. Thank You very much, Professor and all great people involved in preparing this course!

This is a very well constructed on line program. It gives you a clear view about negotiations and provides you with key tactics and valuable information which you can use any time. Professor Siedel is awsome, very immediate and excellent in his explanations and examples. Never thought that negotiations should be so easy to follow and to understand. Great many thank to the University of Michigan and Professor Siedel for this excellent course.

This is an excellent place to get detailed knowledge about these skills. I am working as a Retail Manager, so after this course I am more confident in this skill. We need this skill in our day to day life at somewhere at some point to negotiate with our different clients, however some time we are the customer or service provider. Hence I strongly recommend this course to all aspirants whether you are in job or business.
Thank you COURSERA

This Course was an interesting introduction to negotiation techniques. Especially the psychological traps and the various practical examples were remarkable. The course also gave an introduction to important laws, concerning contracts and negotiation, which was interesting from an non US/common law standpoint.
The professor could explain the material really well and the lectures were enjoyable and easy to follow. Thanks for this course!

Curso bem completo com excelente didática, velocidade e organização. O livro ajuda bastante na apresentação de informações e revê-las na sequência de vídeos ajuda a fixar os conceitos, bem como ter uma visão prática de suas aplicações. Aborda os diversos aspectos desde a apresentação das partes, passando pela negociação e encerrando em um contrato que prevê os possíveis disputas e suas resoluções. Vale o tempo e investimento :)

This course teaches strategies not only for negotiating but for life and the way we make decisions. It is very helpful, you will learn a lot even if you are not experienced or have very little understanding about negotiation; and the professor gives lots of examples for better understanding, keeps interesting every lesson and the way he speaks makes you stay focused. i would definitely take another course with him.

I'm an artist and the content covered is very much outside of my wheelhouse, how I process the world. It was a mind-bender; a welcome challenge. If you'd like to learn the basic skills/and an extensive, in-depth overview to attain a solid understanding of how negotiations work, I highly recommend Professor Siedel's course. Especially appreciated: his way of methodically “building a case” for the art of negotiation.

El material del profesor Jorge Siedel y sus ejemplos son excelentes, el curso es de utilidad para personas de cualquier perfil. Muy recomendado!!

Professor George was an excellent instructor and it was one of the best online courses I have taken to date . I was able to get some new information on negotiation which will be beneficial in both my personal and professional life. Most of his class confirms I have been using best practices in my career and it is real world learning . I especially like that he was clear and was a good speaker .

Thanks, George you had been an awesome instructor. Great insight of hidden human traits. Every theory explained in detail with situational-based examples. The explanation was simple and straight with no place for complexity. Openness, flexibility, keen listener, finding the gaps, scopes, detailing, planning, are some of the key takeaways. Thank you, George. Next is to buy your book

There is worthwhile cognitive insight imparted in this course. Most helpful is the importance of inspecting your view of a problem for faults in perception that limit positive outcomes for both parties in a negotiation. Learning this lesson, and practicing it, can make a considerable difference in a the fruitful outcome of a lifetime of interactions with other people. +++++

Best course for people who deal negotiations of various types at work place, especially for handles procurements at organizations. I handle various good purchases, this course made me to approach more scientifically than conventional methods. I am now more confident, on what strategies or techniques to use while i am negotiating with our vendors. thanks to Michigan Univ.

I liked the methodical and practical way of aporoaching negotiations as taught in this course.From preparation to performance and evaluation the course provides a scientific way of approaching negotiations.Maybe some content on exactly when negotiations start in a business environment especially in deal making ecosystems such as corporate sales,PPPs etc coyld be useful.
Professor George Siedel teaches amazingly! The way the concepts have been explained gives you a crystal clear idea of the situations as well as makes you apply them to similar other situations. For a person from the health sciences background, this course was a smooth run without having to know any previous business negotiations skills. Looking forward to learning more!
