This course was short but very informative and very helpful for an aspiring leader like myself. It also helped me understand how to view or understand when I receive feedback. I highly recommend it!!
I enjoyed the course and learned a lot from it. The content is well organised and focused on practical situations. I particularly enjoyed the bits of psychological research shared in the content.
first of all, I thank the trainer for being very clear and simple on this complicated topic. I really got benefitted with this course. i am a teacher and I come acorss several occasions when i am bound to give feedback. In some cases I was really disingenuous. i have understood psychological reasons for both postitive nad negative feedback, where and how to use them. thank you courera team for arranging wonderful courses.

Tracy was an amazing instructor. I like her teaching style. I learned some new skills to apply when giving feedback at work, with friends and family. I especially liked the approach for when the other person might not agree with you, and what is controllable and what isn't. Thank you to Tracy for a very insightful and interesting course. She certainly held my interest with the various ways she presented the material.

What I liked most about the course is that there was a mixture of business and cognitive psychology. Due to this, I was able to understand better not just how to provide good feedback, but also to understand why people respond to feedback the way they do. I believe this is one of the most important things - to know how the person on the receiving end of the feedback perceives us.

I loved the course very much. Actually, I enjoyed the course very well and it is great that it was a free full course when Coursera turned 9 years. I congratulate Coursera on the successful nine years. The explanation was really great by our teacher Tracy Jennings. I learnt a lot from this course and I hope it will help me shortly.
Thank you once again for this beautiful course!

A well structured course, and if I may add, should be made mandatory for all the people managers. If employees are expected to deliver work which meets a certain standard then employee-managers should also be expected to be qualified enough to evaluate the employee and help nurture their career. Thank you Ms. Tracy Jennings and Coursera Team for putting this course together.

A major aspect of my job is giving feedback. This course gave me clear direction on giving meaningful feedback which I know will return in positive results. It was well worth the time and effort. I only wish that there was feedback to the correct answers on the few questions I missed on the quizzes, This class is well worth the time and effort.

By learning this course, I learned how to give feedback while I am a leader. I also learned the knowledge of positive feedback and negative feedback. Most importantly, I mastered how to give effective feedback and the skills make a lot of sense for me. Thank you. By the way, the professor's ppt is really clear and concise.

I am really excited with the course. I have added a very useful managerial skill. Performance evaluation was one of the difficult areas in my work. It was a necessary evil. Now I will do it with confidence and with a positive outlook. I thank you very much for offering me such a high standard training.

The course was indeed helpful and informative in learning a helpful feedback. A lot of key words that i learn so much from this course such as actor bias trait, Pareto effect and introduction seven feedback skills are useful in developing my personal development. Thank you Tracy Jenning for conducting this course.
By Alina M•
I have truly enjoyed the course, the way it has been delivered and divided into categories. I found the evaluation method of the NOT questions quite misleading and unnecessary. I am confident that with practice my skills of giving feedback will improve now that I have the tools and knowledge to do so. Thank you

An insightful course which is going to highly useful in several places and also helps in one's self development. The Instructor Tracy Jennings have presented multiple examples which will help in the practical application of what is learnt throughout this course.
Everyone, I mean everyone, should take this course. It is easy to follow while full of tools and understanding. It brings not only the recipes but also the background behind helpful feedback. It changes relationships altogether and for the better.

Great weekend course. I watched all the videos and did all the quizzes in two days. Lots of great material to chew on, and the course was very well laid out and visually interesting. Lots of examples and "stories" to help explain the concepts.
