by Ravi partially completed this course, spending 34 hours a week on it.
This is a really good course from Northwestern and Prof. Leigh Thompson. The course covers the topics of Leadership, Teamwork and Negotiation. Each lecture is approximately 5-7 minutes in which Prof. Thompson explains the key concepts, the research or data behind the concepts and summarizes key points on how to apply them. She clearly has a lot of experience in both research as well as working with companies and management in implementing these concepts. As an example, one totally non intuitive concept I learnt was that individuals are more creative than teams. There is research to back this up. And Prof. Thompson explains strategies for making teams creative. Really worthwhile course as a very good introduction to these topics.
