Much respect for Richard Shell, he talks and captivates you, he's really charismatic. Despite that if you're looking for methods, tips or tricks about achieving success or even a new helpful advice that will "say" something new in your mind and unlock an undiscovered area, you won't find it here.

There are many too obvious things. Especially after a second week. This is not the worst course, but not the best one

Ok course.

When I am taking a course from Wharton school, and from adult learning perspective, more is expected than simply small lectures and few activities. Some areas that I see this may be improved...

1) Latest evidence based support (few articles/papers) on achievement and satisfaction (Success both parameters). This is widely discussed field as subjective and objective career success.

2) In addition to SAME - better instruments/scale those are easily available online.

3) Some better links to career related articles from Harvard/California management review or organization dynamics on the topics covered.
