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 started this course after experiencing some very poor examples of emotional leadership in the workplace, and optimistic that the course might generate some ideas.

This class has been one of the best courses I have taken so far online and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has an interest in psychology, self-discovery, and theories of change.. While the title of the course may come off as a bunch of buzz word ideas, the content of the course is highly focused on developing an understanding of self in relation to a particular leadership theory. After developing a sense of self, the student is encouraged to explore where they want to be going, how they can achieve that, how it looks within organization, and how to make sustained change on that level. Dr. Boyatzis provides very clear and concise lectures during the course with assignments that are invaluable to the course as a whole.

This is one of the most fantastic course I have taken online (actually my first)

The course will guide you to understand what it takes to be an exceptional leader by applying certain techniques that, trough emotional intelligence, will help you be the leader that everybody will follow.

Great course! From start to end, it has been rewarding taking time to reflect on this subject...totally recomend it for those who like to reflect personally, or want to define themselves as a better person.
