A very useful course, presented in a very simple and structured way, using an easy English language with a lot of subtitles.
You shall like and get a huge benefit from the materials and the course.

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

This was my first Coursera course at all. The course is in general is interesting and it give a good theoretical approach and examples how to turn this theory in practice.
The discussion possibility is also very useful. Learning from your classmates is great. The discussions are respectfull and if somebody has a different opinion or view this is seen as "added value" and is not judged negatively.
The only thing missing is the possibility to have live and direct conversation with the teachers. I did a training where we had the opportunity for one hour to ask questions in a chat and the teacher was answering them in a live webinar. That was really usefull and would make it a "five"***** star course.
Overall, I would attend/take a Coursera training any time again. Great plattform!

Overall, this course provides a quick look into influence: what is it, where does it come from, and how can I use it. I particularly enjoyed the last module about how to protect oneself from unwanted influence. I also enjoyed the energy of the professor and application of surveys to illustrate concepts in the first and last modules, and in-lecture YouTube videos to illustrate concepts in the second and the third modules. The peer assignments in the second and fourth modules ensured that the concepts were learned by students. The quizzes don't give answers, and there's no final exam ... my main two complaints and the reason for taking a star off. It would have been nice if the last module were longer ...

At the risk of sounding like a jerk and I am TRULY sorry for saying this but only gave this course 4 stars instead of 5 because of one of the professors, not the actual content. I actually feel like this course was GREAT, I just couldnt deal with one of the professors constant sucking of teeth or whatever in the videos and dragging out of everything. Information got repeated in different ways making everything longer and boring where I literally just kept forwarding the lessons. Besides my "ADD" with that one professor, I will have to admit, I loved this course.

Most useful content is the list of factors that influence us behind the scenes in our minds. Would prefer to have more content of that nature presented, since the concepts of power and how to use those behind the scenes influences seem fairly basic in comparison. I appreciated the succinct presentation of the material, as well. Please make your graphics/slides available.

A good, well designed course but very heavily aimed towards those mid-career in a corporate environment. Still worth a look for others, but the assignments will take significant extra thought. Sadly the discussion forums fail at bridging this gap because forum participation framed as mandatory (it is not) in the lecture videos has rendered them a wall of pure noise.

I wish i had te access to this course a little earlier in my life. It gives clear strategy and guidelines "On How to Move across organization". Awesome course for anybody who feels he is working hard work and is lost on how to navigate the complex organization situations... it acts like a torch light... However use it wit common sense...

Using an easy English language this course is interesting to get the basics of influencing and go a bit deeper on how to influence but also how to protect yourself. Useful.

Good materials, good professors and very well put together cours. If there is one thing I would improve is response to questions from the students by the professors.

Very useful course with very good tactics to use in our daily working environment where there might be a lot of influence for personal gains, that is, manipulation.

The course helps in identifying the tactics that are used frequently in order to get personal gains. It teaches how to avoid them and also use them if needed.

The content is good but the peer review assignments are not policed well - so much plagiarism and posts on the forum asking to mutually give full marks.

Very Good course for people managers. It may also help technical people and sales people who do a lot of negotiations on a day to day basis.
