The course has great leadership content and a wealth of experience is shared for the students. I also appreciated the case studies and analysis of real-life scenarios. This course is part of a subscription and I completed all of the work, but did not receive a certificate because too few students were enrolled. This flaw in the grading scheme drove the 2 star rating.

All topics have been elaborated and discussed perfectly. Initially I was scared that how I would be able to manage time but once I joined I never felt that way. A four week course with lots of personality enhancing ideas at workplace will make you feel like fun while studying. Dr.C. K. Gunsalus is one the best speaker In the world. And she has put her best in all lectures available. Whatever she has explained in this course about leadership, anyone can see and feel it into his/her day to day life.
