Really useful course! I learnt many new ways to influence others and protect myself from other people's influence.\n\nP.S The cover is a deal-breaker. I joined this course after watching the intro.

The content that is shared in this is absolutely phenomenal. It might not convince your boss a a very valid qualification sometimes, (given the content names) but it will surely help you to become a better employee with more authority and autonomy over everything. I suggest anyone who take this course to look at this as a life supporting course.

This course is amazing. I've only been through the first week, but I've already learned more than my actual classes at school. It has given me a different perspective on power. I have already found this information useful in my current office and will be incredibly valuable when I am put into a leadership position. Thank you!

The course is great one as this helps people to learn techniques one can apply to influence others so that their view point is considered and also facilitates them to be part of a recognized group. The course teaches persons as how not to get affected by manipulative influence from others and protect their interests.

I really want to continue enrolling in Michigan State University after having this course such attractive, I also would consider this university for my master degree.
I love that this is not a theorethical course, this has so many examples, so many practical tips, this is what I consider as strong in the course.

It is a great opportunity to learn the basics of how to exert influence and how to shield yourself from others' influence. I had the chance to have two very knowledgeable and well grounded professors on this subject that articulate very well, thus make it possible for any foreigner to follow easily the courses.

Gostei muito, bastante esclarecedor. A gente, muitas vezes, vivencia essas experiências, mas sem fazer a análise de como está recebendo uma determinada influência ou influenciando uma pessoa ou situação. Vale a pena ter isso explicado e orientações de como melhorar a performance para que seja algo racional.

This is by far the best course out of four ones in this specialization, as to me it is very practical inside engineering firms. Also, both instructors described the topics very well. The second assignment can be considered as a real exercise for currently employed individuals who are taking the course.

The maeterial is very well structured with summaries by the end of each chapter, it is easy to follow instructor and understandable.

I had never thought about influence as part of my professional toolkit and the positive impact it could have to my contribution as a member and/or leader of a team. This class had clear concepts and actionable items that I could put to work right away for the benefit of my organization.

Great course with many practical tools one can apply to increase their influence and create successful buy-ins. It also creates a very good understanding of different types of power and influence, which is far from being limited by the organizational hierarchy. Highly recommended!

Really great course, very informative.
Loved the videos and the quizzes at the end of each module - really helps the information to sink in
The fact that the videos had the text to go with them, was great, I could read as I was watching the video
Other classmates were interactive

Very pleasant lecturing style with good visualisation of basic ideas. Hands-on approach with a range of good examples. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to understand how some people seem to end up imposing their ideas more than others - and become one of them!

Exceptional course, very easy to understand and useful in day-to-day basis.
I only would suggest to provide additional material to re-inforce understanding, practice and train techniques shown.
Great material you developed, University of Michigan team.

We are social creatures. What's life if we don't know how to interact and influence others? This course talks about the different tools we can use to persuade people, and how to protect your self from being influenced by others. I'd recommend this to anyone.

Great insights, very useful contents. The assignments are a good addition to the lectures & quizzes - it makes it more interactive and "forces" you to think about the content more deeply and in relation to your own experiences.
