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..

Though this course is designed for a certification in Negotiation, the way Mr. George designed this course makes us feel confident like a Master of Negotiations after completing the course. I truly loved going through his course materials and gained lot of knowledge about Negotiation. Thanks a lot Mr. George Siedel for delivering such a wonderful course online.

This course helped me to understand the basics of negotiation. Would be better if there would be online negotiation in live with other students so we can improve ourselves.
in addition, more reading materials to study would be better.
would love to see another courses on negotiation.

Sicuramente interessante perchè fa molti esempi. Tuttavia sembra che qualche volta perde il filo e lascia le cose a metà senza dare una spiegazione efficace. Molto spesso non sapevo come fare gli esercizi, lo spiegava poi nel video successivo prima di dare le risposte, ma ormai era troppo tardi. Tuttavia utile ed interessante

A very insightful course. The course gives you opportunity to take note and discover soft skills which we generally may gloss over but very essential in the success of a negotiation. If nothing at all I have learned always to ask as many questions as I can for Information is key to strengthening my BATNA.

The most impressive quality of the professor is his examples while talking about every concept. It's like, the concepts sticks to your memory. I highly recommend - while you make notes, also write down the examples he used in that topic. Whenever you read them later, you will remember everything about it.

Muy entretenido, el profesor se nota que sabe muchisimo. La semana 4/5 se vuelve un poco muy técnica y densa, se mete en muchos temas legales y de Ley Norteamericana que a lo mejor algunos nunca vamos a usar, pero a fines del curso termina siendo información adicional que tampoco diría que sobra.

One of the best MOOC I've experienced.Narration has been wonderful and straight from the heart.

Глубокий, детально проработанный курс с харизматичным преподавателем. Чёткие объяснения, множество практичных примеров. Не примитивный - есть над чем подумать. Честный тест в конце - нужно потрудиться головой, чтобы сдать. Отлично подходит для улучшения Business English (помимо основных целей).
