I think this course has more potential but due to some repetitive thematics and superficial analysis, is not a nice course.

I am glad that I chose to undergo this course. The course enabled me to do a self-introspection. It let me realize that all peers around me are not similar. It helped me to identify the basic makeup of my bosses, peers and my subordinates. Armed with these ideas I can now form an effective team and have now educated myself to delegate tasks to my subordinates depending upon their strong and weak points.

I enjoyed the course and got quite a lot out of it in terms of how your personality relates to the type of role, size and architecture of organization you wish to pursue in. It goes step by step with some brief notes and challenge exercises to test your knowledge upon every section. The challenges are real-life work scenarios so that you put yourself in that specific position, that is what i liked most about it. I completed this course and will definitely continue to pursue another part of this Xseries program so as to develop a better and focused understanding of my career and choices.

I had very mixed feelings about this class. I felt like there was some potential but it didn't deliver in terms of quality. I was hoping this class would give me a few more ideas about what type of path I want to take in my professional career. The only thing I really managed to get out of this was what my personality type was. That is good but there wasn't enough to build on that. Maybe I have to take more than one program to get the full feel but this didn't make me want to jump in to the others. I think honestly using the peer review system would really help in this class. The passing grade of 85% is also rather high for this. Made me really nervous because the final exam didn't really make much sense to me.
