Best Free MOOCs In Business For December

Inspiring Leadership Through Emotional Intelligence

 

School: Case Western Reserve University

Platform: Coursera

Registration Link: REGISTER HERE

Start Date: December 5, 2016 (8 Weeks)

Workload: 3-4 Hours Per Week

Instructor: Richard Boyatzis

Credentials: Boyatzis teaches leadership, change management, emotional and social intelligence, and coaching at Case Western Reserve University. A highly-regarded author, Boyatzis was ranked as the ninth-most influential thinker in a survey by HR Magazine. A pioneer in Intentional Change Theory (ICT), Boyatzis also co-authored the international best-seller Primal Leadership with Daniel Goleman and Annie McKee. He has taught at the university for 27 years and has earned the school’s Distinguished University Professor Award and the John Diekhoff Award for Graduate Student Teaching.

Graded: Students can choose to explore course videos, discussions, and ungraded assignments for free, but they won’t be able to submit graded assignments, earn a certificate, or complete a specialization without paying a $49 fee.

Description: Great leaders are attuned to their own emotions – and those of others. However, chronic stress can erode their emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and compassion. In this course, students will learn the characteristics of great leadership and the neuroscience behind it. They’ll understand how to reverse the effects of stress, build stronger and more “resonant” relationships, and craft a vision for themselves and their team.  Each class will contain two to four modules, which include videos, exercises and a homework assignment. Students will be evaluated on these take-home assignments, weekly quizzes, participating in discussion forums and a final exam.

Review: “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.” For additional reviews, click here.
