A great course for the beginners. The videos are short and easy to comprehend. The slides can be downloaded in PDF - i find it very convenient as i can share some of those slides with my colleagues.

The course was overwrought in general - seemed like it could have been accomplished in four weeks instead of five. The instructor was clear most of the time, but there were places were the concepts were unclear, probably 80 percent was on target. This might explain the inconsistent grading of written assignments. Needs some fine tuning, but worth the time.

This course seems to split a lot of hairs for very little benefit: Is XYZ a Circumstance (fact), Action (also a fact), or Result (also a fact). Is it a thought or a feeling? but "I'm feeling overwhelmed" is a thought. While being able to tell the difference between a fact and a feeling is a good thing, trying to split some hairs is just consultant speak for give me a lot of money to confuse you. The videos of the leader of linked in give more substance than part 3 of this course.
To some degree, some of what she is trying do is convince use the King's new clothes are beautiful, but some of it is just bluster without substance.
Does she believe what she is teaching? Maybe, but she seems to worry more about definitions than substance

Most of it was for beginners. Thought model is interesting, the rest was too high level, that should not be new to a manager.

Very easy, just a model: circumstance- thought-feeling-action-result; not challenging enough

This course feels quite weak, especially for the paid course, for these reasons:
Models (Leader as Mentor, Coach, etc..., CTFAR model), which are given in this course, are given as is, with no references on how they were developed, authorship, and how good the results of application are.
Almost no (just one) external references for reading to better understanding course material.
The amount of material (about 3 hours of video, 4 quizzes, 2 discussions and 1 assignment) doesn't feel like it's a month's course, more like a one/one-and-a-half week.
No references on topics, described as "hard" during the course (for example, identifying your values), which would make this topics less "hard".
No instructor interaction on the course forum (I don't know if this should be like this or not, but it still feels bad).
However, the final assignment is good and practice oriented.

The course had some good information and I was interested in the material but did not want to wait a month to get a paper graded in order to move to the next section.

While the Facilitator may be knowledgeable, the course has a HORRIBLE format. The Facilitator often giggles during the presentation which MIGHT work if this was a LIVE presentation. Also she uses of the phrase "a lot" frequently and that detracts greatly from the value of the course.
Introductory portions are poorly produced with background music that is louder than the Facilitator.
The course CONTENT is good, and is very helpful.
