I audited this course and read the books. I can truly say that it has not only changed my professional interactions and management style, but I use the techniques and ideas in much of my daily life.

Leigh Thompson effectively communicates this thoughtful course, full of relevant content and examples that keep the momentum. I loved this course so much, I finished the whole thing in a week!

Prof. Thompson is a great lecturer! The course material is very well taught, I even shared some of the videos with my colleagues because I found them extremely useful even outside of this course.

Sad I couldn't get my certificate.

This is the first course I ever took at Coursera and honestly the time and money I invested on this was
so valuable!! This course is "not to be missed" for sure whether you're finance or sales oriented person.

I gained insights to many things that we face in daily life, but are unaware to handle them correctly. Kudos the content creators. Will definitely enroll for more courses. Era of coursera is great.

Content is good but does not go into the depth of any specific topic. There are lots of details so if it would have been in-depth then it would really help. Also it looked like more advertisement of the books written by the professor. For everything it needed to refer the book which we have to buy.

Professor L. Thompson kept me engaged by delivering premier content in her learning videos. In addition, she made it very easy for me to take notes, refer back to them in my everyday life be it at work or personal interactions, and kept me wanting to learn more. This course is valuable to professionals like me who are already degreed but need a refresher outside of the normal company training platforms. I look forward to completing other courses under Professor Thompson's catalogue. Thank you!

High Performance Collaboration program has given me the view , how a leader should act upon. Why is it important that a team leader is also team player, rather than a individual seating over a hierarchy. He has to collabrate with team and bring best out of them and manage a team towards common goal. Negotiation is another skill which helps a individual to bring best negotiations for the organisaton and it addes up to individuals personality traits.

This is an excellent course! It was a breath of fresh air. Both stimulating and challenging. Very well presented, did not insult my intelligence by being too simplistic or lacking in critical thinking. I also appreciate the amount of time and effort that went into ensuring the sound and visual quality and aesthetics are excellent. It inspired me to consider furthering my education with Northwestern university.

Top Notch! It may be stating the obvious, but Northwestern truly is a fine institution of higher learning. The course videos absolutely prove it. The instructor is amazing. I highly recommend it.

The Course Video Material, Quiz, Assignment is excellent , user friendly and helps us to identify our Strong and weak Areas and to improve upon.
By Nathan F•
I would give 4.5 stars if that were possible. The material was relevant and enjoyable, and presented in a logical and often entertaining way. Dr. Thompson made the material "come alive" and I found myself riveted to her every word. (This is very unusual for a video-based course, in my experience). Though not related to this course specifically, I have to doc one point for technology and the peer review process. The tech is occasionally buggy, and lacks continuity across platforms. The peer review process is non-empirical and plagued by some kind of bias characterized by not-particularly-intelligent people taking advantage of the process as a means of wielding their very limited power.
By Carlo M•
Good course. Good content. A bit of a repetition if you have an MBA. Overall good content.

Having a course on Leadership, Teamwork and negotiation strategies with getting things to learn from professionals like Leigh Thompson from Northwestern University is of great value to me and my skills.
The contents of this course made me go through some of the key factors and stepping stones of leadership, also dealing with decision making and organizational intelligence.
I also got to learn about team-building with better management and optimization of conflicts to work collectively for creativity and innovation.
The importance of having a Win-Win strategy of negotiation and working ethically has also been beautifully covered in this course.
One of the best well-crafted quotes which I liked the most while listening to words of Leigh Thompson-
"We should always be 'work in progress' believing in the fact that the invested time and effort for learnings and improvements, never expire."
By GANESH S•
"Learning process gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge, knowledge makes you great”.
I gained knowledge on the principle on Leadership development, team work & Negotiation. My Most interesting part is Leadership development. We learned about," Leadership is not about a tittle or a designation, Its about impact, influence and inspiration”. Leadership is the art of giving people a platform for spreading ideas that work.
The content provided for practice are very comprehensive and very good quality. Major highlight of coursera is the facility to access the course anywhere & anytime. This course helped me to understand, leadership development, team work & negotiation skill which will help us to create positive work environment.
Thanks to our management & coursera team to giving us opportunity to learn this.

The course has the essence of team leading essentials. Prof. Leigh introduces concepts/theories, explains with vivid examples, and gives key points/advice for audiences to take away. To me personally and professionally, this course opens my mind to management methods, gives me professional languages/tools to use, and inspires me to think deeper about what my team is and how I want my team to be.
Besides team-related knowledge, the negotiation strategies are also very practical to my personal life. I will try to apply it in everyday negotiations. Also, I cannot wait to teach my 7-year-old boy the art of negotiation and I believe this could benefit him for the rest of his life.
Thank you, Prof. Leigh Thompson.
I would recommend this course to anyone.
This course was extremely valuable. I purchased Making the Team as well, as the course motivated me to read further about team assembly, dynamics, and management. Leigh's lecture style was easy to follow, and the graphics during the videos were simple, clear, and helped to augment the lecture. I thought the peer assignments were great as well, and it was very informative to read the work of my peers'. I would absolutely recommend this course to others. I have 10 years of experience in my industry and have started to transition from being a doer to leading and managing teams. I don't have an MBA, and I felt this course gave me some good tools and strategies to address some of the tougher aspects of being a manager / leader.

The course is amazing and enables you to recap what you probably have seen or known and creates a foundation for your shortcomings going forward. Professor Leigh Thompson is highly effective and retains your attention at all times with valuable lessons and themes. She does have a vast material available online which will foster your learning process in addition to the platform. It is a unique opportunity to be connected to the Kellogg School of Business which is top rated in the US. Coursera platform is pretty neat. Absolutely recommended and planning to continue the following ones.
By PRAKASAM M•
Enjoyed the learning through Coursera and this is one of the wonderful learning experience. Changed my belief of online courses will not meet the standards of Class room training. New skills and techniques learned and easy to understand and apply in our day today routine and can show case the uniqueness among others. Learning after immediate assignment with action plan improved the further understanding. Further motivated to do more Online courses after this. Thanks for my Enterprise to given the opportunity to learn and apply through Coursera.

Excellent course going to give insight of High Performance Coloration through leadership, Teamwork and Negotiation skills. Course is very precise and cover every aspect related to subject. Professor Leigh Thompson explained in very effective manner and the way she started every lecture with storytelling is fantastic and explain every topic with realistic examples. This course is very useful for everyone who wants to perform high and give significant contribution to team or wants to lead the team in effective manner.

The information and materials are SPECTACULAR; ELITE. And the quizzes were great and on point. But the Coursera component of peer review is a massive pain in the ass. I feel like I am working FOR Coursera in my grading. I like the rubrics, but I'm quite sure this problem has not in any way been solved. This is my third Coursera class. Almost always the same experience. It is so close to transformationally amazing. Yet falls flat with the peer review process. You MUST figure out how to weed out the game players.

I learned many useful ideas during this course, and was able to use some of them with my team right away. I also picked up much future reading material, including research papers cited during the course. It's definitely a science based and effective approach to management. It would be nice if all the additional suggested material was included, but regardless, the content in the core of the modules is great. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to improve their team performance.
