This course was so-so. As with many self-help books or courses, you may learn a few things and you may end up with several tools for improvement. But you may also leave this course with a feeling that you've just watched a fancier version of a Tony Robbins video. The instructor likes to give silly names (e.g., Intentional Change Theory) to simple things that are either common wisdom or ideas that you've seen before. The idea that you'd have to take an in-person "graduate-level course" in order to advance beyond this course is just silly (need a Bachelor's Degree to do self-help?) and makes me think that Case Western Reserve University doesn't belong on Coursera alongside serious institutions. It's interesting to see the parallels between this course and another Coursera course, "Better Leader, Richer Life"; both courses have engaging lecturers who are deeply convinced that they have a unique system for self-improvement.

The course content was somewhat interesting but very broad and general in it's scope, that is if it had any scope at all. Not very useful. If I had a chance I would probably not take it again.

A decent interesting course, but - on my discretion - a little bit messy and not always useful. The most interesting and exciting part was the introduction of the chronic stress recovery, but in the same time - I'm not sure, that it has direct relation to Inspiring Leadership. May be reading Stress Resilience course would be better?

Outstanding course on all levels. I learnt so much. Richard Boyatzis was personable, engaging and inspiring. He has an easy manner and explains clearly. I will more than likely be using Coaching with Compassion towards PHD studies. I am looking at ways to incorporate it. Highly recommended. I obtained a verified certificate.

Disengaged faculty, trivial content, poorly organized "2-track" syllabus. Deadlines on holidays, intrusive projects that in my opinion don't disclose how data will be used in research. Discussion forum dominated by inexperienced people and little to no TA moderation

NOTE: I watched the lectures, nothing else. I didn't have any hopes with this course, I just enrolled to grab some videos and maybe watch one or two of them. What a surprise! The lectures are given in beautiful English, they are full of examples, and they are related not only to companies, but family, and personal life as well. So in a way, this course might help you become a better leader, but a better (more aware) person as well. It help you understand your inner "you" and how to interact with other people. The video material is top- notch when it comes to technical issues, clarify of the image, crystal clear audio. I wish there are more courses prepared so professionally as this one.

I had some experience leading teams of sellers as department manager, and I took this course because I wanted to deepen my understanding on leadership. I had only took some courses within my former company, so I can hardly do any comparison. But I can say that it was an outstanding MOOC. One of the best I undertook. A mix between practice and theory. I really enjoy reading about the relationship about chaos and complexity theory and behavioural changes. In addition, some of the exercises were very inspiring. To summarize, great course full of interesting papers, video lectures and practice, but more crucial, a new way to think about human relations.

This is a great course, but confusing sometimes. Video lectures are super interesting and engaging. But than reading materials are usually pretty boring and almost all by the same author. Grading system is a bit confusing so during the course people had tons of question about it.

The professor's videos are engaging. This was an excellent class though to really get the most out of it requires you to do some serious thinking about yourself and your life and do things outside of class that may take you out of your comfort/passive zone. And who knows... that may just change your life!

The video lectures are excellent but some of the PLA's are really not easy to understand. I would have like some more quizzes. In a way, I find the graduating policy way too subjective.

An excellent leadership course that provides a framework and not just self- motivation or cheer-leading. Major takeaway is that the examples and exercises are immediately and directly applicable to work and other social situations.

Prior experience on this subject: none: As an engineering student, I've always enjoyed this kind of subject, so I decided to enroll on a MOOC about it, since there was no way I could get formal education at this point and felt that reading a random book on my own wouldn't be the best option. After completing all the assignments I must say that the course title is misleading, what it is really about is how should you help yourself and others to find which future do you want to have (so to say) and why is that important in organizations (all backed up by studies, which I found to be very interesting). If you engage in this course, be prepared to: read ~3 articles/week, engage in forums (which are part of the evaluation, because of lack of time I didn't do this and probably that damaged my learning) and reflect on yourself (which was also a bit hard to me, since it's hard to define a future path if you still hadn't touched all the subej...

There's also optional learning assignments which suggest you to practice what you learn on real people and then evaluate the results, which was something I did not do (unfortunately, due to my social context it was hard to find people willing to participate) but found to be very interesting.
