Probably the best course videos Ive come across. Professor George I believe is an amazing teacher...the way he gets the concept across to students by simple and constant examples is worth mentioning..

Really enjoyed this class. It was a good refresher and gave me good ideas how to tweak my negotiations skills after beeing more than 20 years in business. The class and M. Siedel were a breath of fresh air and made me understood how I approach certain topics in negotiations and be able to be even more effective in them. One of the most important element is that it showed me how much more I need to LISTEN instead of always have something to say. My wife will certainly agree to this !

I absolutely LOVED this course. I have been in the negotiation business for many years and feel that I learned so much from this course and cannot wait to apply my new found knowledge. It was not easy by any means and did leave me flustered at times but only because it took me away from my comfort zones from time to time. This course is a MUST for anybody that thinks they know it all about negotiating! I know I thought I did before I took it! Thank you so much Professor Siedel!

One of the best real life course, that has a lot of practical and technical knowledge which most negotiators think they have but really do not know or understand it. It puts our thought process in a scientific way to negotiate with people and to understand how the other person will think and try to trap you. There is a lot of practical examples which helps you to change your way of negotiation. I am glad I took this course and will implement these techniques, in my daily life.

Successful Negotiation: Essential Strategies and Skills is a very useful program for all person and not just for corporates. its design in a very simple but meaningful manner. Its more apt for legal professionals / sales person who are required to negotiate on different aspect on regular basis. I feel it would have been more useful, I one could attend the face to face class for better experience in the role play, but this was as good as it gets in the virtual world of today.

I had a great time studying Negotiation through the lessons made by Professor George Siedel and made available by Coursera. Honestly, the classes overcame my expectations since Week 1, and I'm grateful for all the learning they provided me. I strongly recommend this course to everyone who wants to learn about all kinds of negotiations and its strategies and legal approach, I'm sure you will find excellent theory complemented by study cases ministrated by Professor Siedel.

This course was wonderful, it was easy to follow and gives a systematic run-down of how to start prepping for a negotiation, This course is already helping me in my personal life - For example-I managed to reduce my gym membership fees by negotiating with the sports club. Thank you for that ! Professionally this has helped me impress my boss and peers by coming up with novel solutions by simply thinking using logic of BATNA and ZOPA to my advantage. Cant thank you enough.

Excellent course! I recommend this course for everyone interested in negotiation whether you're an amateur (just like me) or a professional. The course content is clear and the lectures are easy to follow. Professor, you explained everything very neatly and clearly. It was a very valuable experience to me, and I found myself learning more than I thought I would. It's definitely worth trying!
Thank you professor Siedel for your wonderful work.

Phenomenal insight into many aspects of basic business negotiations and overall contract crafting. As a small business owner I have frequently found contracts with our business being negotiated using some of the very techniques covered in this course. It was refreshing to see them from a well versed perspective and better understand how I might prepare counter negotiations to ensure our companies interests are fairly represented in future contracts and negotiations.

It was a very comprehensive course on negotiation covering key strategies and skills essential for success. There were many case studies and exercises throughout the course to illustrate and deepen understanding of concepts. George shared many personal examples and experiences he came across in his working careers and as a teaching professor. I strongly recommend this course to all those who are int interested to learn more on achieving success in negotiation.

Because of this course, I am more aware of opportunities to negotiate in my every day interactions with others. I enjoyed Professor Siedel's teaching style. He gets you to think on a deeper level, especially when he poses questions and presents scenarios. The course material is framed in a comprehensive manner. In hindsight, this course on negotiation has shown me how much of a poor negotiator I was. However, I now feel more empowered by what I've learned.

I am absolutely love this course! Despite frequent use of negotiating in my job, I was always dislike to negotiate until I sit for the course and learn the theory. The course also designed so well for a busy professional like me, with less gruesome schedules and deadlines. I totally recommend this course for those who never really completed any course in Coursera successfully, and of course, to those who wants to learn more about the theory of negotiati

Dr. Siedel is a true Master! I enrolled in the course because I am in Sales and I engage in negotiations on a daily basis. the course was so engaging that my wife(nurse by occupation) ended up listening almost to the whole course with me! The course addressed a lot of questions that I run into on a daily basis such as how do I enlarge the pie? what is the other side interest? etc' and elucidated techniques that I am using. Thank you Dr. Siedel!!!

Mr. Siedel is a great instructor and with all the real-life experiences and examples, it has been an excellent course to participate in. Even for those who are not from the relative technical background, it definitely will be an enjoyable journey.
I had so much fun and learned a great deal from him. Also, I must mention that the stories used in his lectures were cherries on top of the cake!
I wish to meet you some day and thank you in person!

This course is totally amazing. I would have never guessed that I knew so very little about negotiations even though my first degree was Procurement and Supply Chain Management which treats negotiations as a major subject. I believe the approaches used by Prof. Siedel is one of a kind. I felt very involved in the whole process and at the end it really didn't feel like there was any pressure at all while learning because it was also very fun.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this online course and have been able to broaden my skill set and understanding accordingly. This course has given me the tools and knowledge to plan out future negotiations and dispute management which is crucial in the field I work in.
Thank you for taking the time to create such a vast and detailed course.
As an international student, I also enjoyed learning more about Michigan and the core focus of the University.

This Course was an interesting introduction to negotiation techniques. Especially the psychological traps and the various practical examples were remarkable. The course also gave an introduction to important laws, concerning contracts and negotiation, which was interesting from an non US/common law standpoint.
The professor could explain the material really well and the lectures were enjoyable and easy to follow. Thanks for this course!

A very good course, held by a very clear and understandable professor with a really good way of teaching and explaining such a complex argument. This is really helpful not only applied to business but also in everyday life.
After this course i'm able to look at negotiations with a different perspective by understanding the scenario in which i'm involved.
I suggest this course to all the people, it gives you a boost in your life

Great course, covering a lot of theory that is also applicable in real life. Have enjoyed the teaching style of Prof. Siedel very much. Friendly, clear, complete, to the point. The practice exercise of week 6 is a great addition that makes it clear how you can use what you've learned. The only (minor) remark is that the course has obviously some principles funded on American law, which aren't perse applicable in Europe.

I really can recommend this course to everyone who wants to structure his negotiations.
I would describe myself as an experienced business negotiator, but the scientific approach to issues you encounter before, in and after a negotiation really helped me to improve my personal results.
Mr Siedel is a very good speaker, who gives very realisitc and sometimes fun examples.
I am really glad that I have found this course!

I am so glad I signed up for this course. I love the topic and has made some other courses around the World, but this one has been exceptional. Highly recommend it, I like the interactive way in what Professor Siedel has deliver every topic, he did cover all the subjects that matter not just for citizens in the US but around the Globe, and listening and watching him felt like if I was in class listening to him.

Really good introductory course to negotiation, clearly defines the underlying principles of negotiation and links it to basic human psychology and then gives a practical interpretation with good examples of how these two areas can be leveraged to make you a better negotiator. It kept me engaged and interested throughout and I have emerged with an additional set of skills to help me throughout my future career.

This course has greatly enhanced my ability to see, not only business deals but, everyday life deals (decisions) from the perspective of the other person; looking beyond obvious details to seeing the big picture. Life is not always a struggle, depending on perspective and with the power of negotiation.
I love the lessons from House on the Elm street.
I believe i can negotiate better now. Thanks to Prof. Siedel.

I was never a fan of online course but this is course is on another level. Every video was a pack of complete new surprises and skills. I never spend more than 1 hour in continous study but guess what i complete this course of 7 weeks in 14 days. This course really showed me that getting an A in business in alevels isn't everthing.
And so in end all to thanks to Sir George for making such a wonderful course.
