Course Description

The Total Leadership approach will help you become a better leader by having a richer life and have a richer life by becoming a better leader. Learn a practical, proven method for how to articulate your core values and vision; build trust with your most important people; and achieve "four-way wins" -- improved performance at work or in school, at home with your family, in your community, and for your self (mind, body, spirit). It's not about "work/life balance"; it's about creating harmony among the different parts of your life as a leader in all of them.

I have mixed feelings about the course. On the one hand, it gave me a couple of insights and offered applicable techniques. On the other hand, for a fast pace person the course was tedious, often repetitive, and the structure designed for standard north american style of life, which may differ from other cultures. It, however, contributed in the quality of my life, helped organize my thoughts and provoke actions. I do not regret taking it.

I have tried to take this a couple times now and have always been too busy, but since I'm making a huge change in my life over the next couple months, I figure now I will really complete the course. The "community" track of this course relies on peer review, which often scares away students who've taken a MOOC with peer reviews. However, one thing that impresses me, from a teaching style, in this MOOC is that it gives examples of what a good essay is like (the only other MOOC I've taken that had this is "Learning How to Learn"). Besides teaching you something, the essay examples also greatly lessen the fear of students incorrectly giving you a poor peer review. The peer reviews also have a minimum word count requirement, so you also don't spend a huge time on an essay, only to get a peer review with numbers and no words or barely useful comments like "That was nice".
