Peter Drucker, a pioneer in the field of management, once said that people have a perverse tendency to behave like human beings. Of course, we are not machines, and certainly not programmable.

I believe this course is going a long way to helping me become my best professional self.
Enjoyed this course, I had taken an OB course before. It was a great way to recap some of the theories that may have traveled to the back of my mind.
Great refresher, thanks.
Great facilitator. Content is clear and effective. Very useful guide focused on key areas in management that can be quite complex but the course makes it easier to understand, analyze and apply.
I like how the professor explains things. Also, she's not boring to look at and listen to. Her voice is alive that makes me more attentive whil
