An absolutely wonderful course on communication skills. Its a course every professional should take as it teaches the very basics of communication that we all should incorporate and practice everyday.
This course surpassed my expectation. I can not only apply what I have learned in my professional life but also can help me to improve some personal aspects, like communication with my family members.

I am glad that I took this course, it is challenging and insightful. I hope I am able to apply what I've learned in real life. I enjoyed week 3: Deception and Week 4: Effective Communication the most! I am very happy for an opportunity to participate in this course, and look forward to joining more of them. Thank you Prof. Schweitzer for your knowledge!

Complete! This is one of the most engaging and practical courses I have done. Prof Schweitzer was clear in explaining, concise in presenting, stayed relevant all the way from Module 1 through to 4. I found this course to be highly educative and applicable to daily situations and I highly recommend it. Thank you.

Very relevant life skills learned during the course, the facilitator was very convincing with abundance of information, examples and statistics. It also presented a different outlook on mundane previously unnoticed factors in communication that wasn't realized leading to a new and improved thought process.

The course gives a lot of interesting insights into various aspects of communication. These are explained well and the quiz structure motivates to go back through the material. An improvement would be to put the individual pieces into a broader context and support developing a communication strategy.

I found the course very useful. The professor was very clear, concise and provided interesting examples on each communication topic. Thank you so much for the work done to create this quality course.
P.S. in module 4 I believe the quiz was automatically deducting 20% due to a calculation error.

The course exceeded my expectations. It teaches you the different communication skill strategies in practical life situations with relevant examples. I surely recommend this course to anyone wishing to explore communication practices and develop the skills to communicate more effectively.

Cannot measure in words how much knowledge this course has provided me with. Be it, the personal or professional sphere of life, this course is attributed to teaching me the smallest of communication methods.
A wonderful professor with an ocean of knowledge and a wonderful initiative.

A wonderful course. It was interesting and engaging from start to finish. The quizzes were really fun to do. A big thank you to Professor Maurice Schweitzer for explaining these great concepts so succinctly. I must add that I very much enjoyed his subtle sense of humor!

When I finished this course, I was just wondering, why all these things were not taught at school. So many of these recommendations / reflections would have been so helpful in the past. The best time to do this course was 5 years ago, the second best time is today ;)

Excellent material on important topics that are usually taken for granted or dealt with intuitively, and often incorrectly. A highly recommended course to better understand the way of the world, and equip oneself to deal with it, and transform it to a global good.

Excellent. This is definitely less about actual communication and more about the strategy of what, when, how, and why to communicate. You won't learn to write better or make flashier presentations but you will learn how to have more impact through communication.

I really enjoyed the course.
I have learn smooch about communication by considering my counterpart first and also by considering her/his implicit communication.
Most of the topics touched in the course are very helpful in my daily working life.
Thank you for that.

Professor Schweitzer is very knowledgable and has a great ability to structure information and at the same time convey it in a very easy to digest manner. Also his personality is very enjoyable, making this course feel like going out for coffee with a friend.

That was a challenging course. A lot of new vocabulary and course by itself took a lot attention and time from me. I am happy I completed it and I wish now to read all notes and start applying knowledge in practice. Thanks for this course. Regards, Elizaveta.

Brilliant course. Coming from the field of design, these communication skills are extremely important when dealing with clients and with users. The instructor provided plenty of examples to explain the concepts he was teaching. The load was not heavy either!

This is the most engaging online course I've taken. For me it was like reading a good book. I couldn’t put it down. The real-life stories and examples were fascinating and provided a way for me to remember what I learned. I highly recommend!

Great course! The content may seem easy in the first place (a lot of them are just common sense). However, if you dig deep and take practic, you will end up with a lot of takeaways. For example, active listening chapter is quite useful.
by Nicholas J S•
Very informative. Explained in a way that is practical and used in every day communications. I found examples to be very interesting and related. Very interested to think about these situations listening to our leader at staff meetings!

I enjoyed taking this course. It is a good survey/overview of the topic. You'll probably be looking for more detailed courses or references after this one. The instructor speaks clearly, is entertaining, and is easy to understand.
