The course delved deep into the concept of being a superboss and how it can transform the way we lead and develop talent within an organization. It provided a comprehensive understanding of the key principles and strategies that distinguish superbosses from traditional managers. The course emphasized the importance of nurturing and empowering individuals to reach their full potential, rather than simply managing their tasks.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone seeking to enhance their leadership skills and learn effective strategies for managing and supporting people in the workplace. It is a valuable resource for both new and experienced leaders looking to make a lasting impact on their teams and organizations.

Professor Finkelstein's expertise in the field of talent management and leadership shines through in every aspect of this course. His engaging teaching style, backed by years of research and practical experience, has made the learning experience truly exceptional. He shares compelling case studies of "Superbosses" from various industries, providing valuable insights into their strategies and practices. These examples have inspired me to think critically about my own approach to talent management and leadership and have given me a fresh perspective on how to develop and nurture talent within my organization.

The course provides a clear pathway to attracting talented and driven people, developing them unreservedly, giving them opportunities to thrive even when they are not sure of themselves, and ultimately having them turn into leaders who also develop others to soar.

I love that the course gives one the ropes to put what they have learned into practice.
