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..

This is a terrific course and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who feels he is not a very good negotiator. In particular, I believe that people in the technology fields would most benefit from this course as they are typically weaker in the soft skills departments than other people in other fields.

A very very good, excellent professor!!! He laid out all the theory in a very clear way. And I loved the tests and the negotiation assignment, which he debriefed fully while relating all aspects to what we learned and explained it all. Very useful course if you want to improve your skills in negotiation.

This was an excellent course, I learned things that I wish I'd know 20 years ago. I struggled a bit with the final exam and would have liked the option for an answer key to help with a few of the problems that I had trouble with. That said, the student forums were very helpful in resolving my questions.

As a administration professional, this course improved my career in global sphere of negotiation. Teaching keys, tactics and many others ways to achieve what the best alternative to conduct situations.
I have no doubt about this awesome learning method.

Thank you Mr. George Siedel!

Very much enjoyed the class, well organized, presented the material very well and concepts were easy to understand and even to apply. What was very enjoyable was the negotiation scenario where you were able to use what you learned and get feedback how well you were able to apply the lessons learned.

I was fortunate enough to learn negotiation skills from Professor George Siedel , as his explanation for these topics is in so simple and practical way , you are not lost in details but reach your end goal with ease. I would also thank Coursera & University Of Michigan for designing such course.
Very practical and useful on the real case. You can take a retrospective view of previous negotiation and finding the weakness and the blind point. Also you will have new perspectives on different negotiation. It is very enlightened course on my future negotiations. Thanks Professor George Siedel.

Very happy I took this course. George is very engaging and clearly passionate. Theory is matched with practical application. Information covers a wide variety of topics involved in negotiation without being too complex for the average person to understand or relate to. Highly, highly recommended!

It is incredible how Proffesor Siedel manage to turn a MOOC into a really dynamic and practical course. Every topic is explained with daily life examples which makes easier to understand the concepts.
Now I feel more prepared to perform negotiations and eager to continue developing my weak spots!
by Alan S•
First time completing a MOOC, and perhaps the best education from a MOOC I can get. Professor Siedel surely made the course easy to understand and intercept it with stories that make it interesting. I felt I have expanded in person after taking this course. Thank you UoM/Coursera and Dr. Siedel!

Learning a lot, Since I am very passionate about the field of supply chain management/procurement and supply, it was one of the reasons that I chose to do this course. It compliments my current field of study and gives a wealth of knowledge that I can apply to my day to day functions at work.
Курс очень практический, многие знания можно применять в реальной жизни, на работе, всевозможных сделках. Педагог - профессионал с большой буквы, очень многое знает, но при этом все доступно и легко объясняется. Лекции "живые", нет желания уснуть, хорошие видео-нарезки. Обязателен к изучению!
Really impressive! I've benefitted a lot from just taking the course because it's a realm that I've never encountered before, yet I haven't done some spcific real-life pratice.I bet this mind-changlleging course will continue to boarden my horizen and equip me with a big negotiation picture.
by Felix S A•
I have learnt a lot from this course. I thought negotiation should be a natural thing for you to know if you are in business or deal with people but now I have come to know that it is more than 'dragging' who will win/lose. But now I know better. Thank you very much for the knowledge gained.

course content was extremely good but week 7 exam was not up to the mark. I attempted the exam twice to came to know that "two of the above" means first and 2nd option not 3rd and last option. Also, some of the questions were very confused hard to understand. Test needs very much betterment
by Manav S•
Brilliant course. The practice exercise in the end truly was an eye opener, and made me re think my approach to any negotiation. Furthermore, throughout the course, George kept sharing intriguing examples that even standalone are such valuable lessons. Thoroughly satisfied with the course!
by Dmytro S•
Professor Siedel makes great work of shattering lots of common logical fallacies that we use daily when we enter negotiations or avoid them. Negotiations is a universally applicable tool for a successful career and life in general. Don't hesitate to enroll, this was a pleasant ride for me.

Cool course! It's simple and easy to understand. It is highly recommended not only to professionals, lawyers, agents and businessmen but also to other average persons.
A round of applause for George Siedel, "Negotiation Team" and Coursera! I hope many people will enroll on this course.
by Štefan S•
One of the best courses I've ever done. The material is very interesting, well prepared and easy to follow. I've never realised how much I wanted to learn about negotiating until I've started to dig deeper into this course. For me that's the hallmark of a superb learning experience.
by Mikhail K•
Like many, for a well-known reason, I decided to try courses online. This was the first experience at Coursera.
Very interesting and useful course for everyone who wants to improve their negotiation skills and learn new about negotiation strategies
Thanks for this great opportunity

In my job (and real life) i negotiate almost every day, this course gave me important tips and tools in order to manage future negotiation.
Dr. Seidel is a great teacher, i really admire his way of explaining and i hope i have an opportunity to follow some others lessons by him.
by Chuck S•
