Better Team Building, Communication, Negotiation, and More
This course features highly informative and beautifully designed lectures, little-known secrets from superstars of leadership and management, and interactive exercises to make these career-changing concepts come to life. The course itself is divided into three sections:
In the early sections of the course, you’ll discover how to handle the most common management challenges, how to lead high-performing teams across different situations, and how to communicate effectively in the current era. Today’s business leaders must communicate in person and through digital mediums. You’ll learn about delivering effective messages through multiple channels using communication models like the ELM, Minto Pyramid, and more.

With negotiation, you’re likely to face complex scenarios during your career. You’ll develop go-to strategies for thinking “win-win” and claiming value from every high-stake negotiation.

From a productivity standpoint, you’ll learn to be dramatically more efficient and to work successfully with the many claims on your time and energy.
In the final sections of the course, you’ll develop the ability to look at key management issues from a macroeconomic perspective. This will allow you to anticipate macroeconomic events and important changes in government policies. Last but not least, you’ll develop your own leadership style by creating leadership guideposts and then building your own tools – ones that you can use to understand your own people and work better with your own teams.

You asked and we delivered! We've now optimized this learning experience for you to receive your advanced management certificate when you complete 100% of the course. This feature has been popular with members of Eazl's growth marketing community because it enables you to use your time and energy taking this course to earn a verifiable certificate created, hosted, and issued by Eazl.
The course now includes brand new footage at the beginning of each section that deliver the key concepts that you'll build in the section. Overall in the 5.0 upgrade, we have embraced the sophisticated management science research that drives this learning experience. In order to make that research meaningful, you need to be comfortable with relatively advanced concepts relating to negotiation, communication, etc. so we've made that a bigger part of the new lectures.
A cloud-based study guide now accompanies version 5 of the course. This should make your learning experience more interactive and seamless if you're using a mobile device.
What's new in version 6? (Published November 3, 2018)
Our students asked for more opportunities to apply their learning, so we have used Udemy's new Assignments feature to build case-study exercises for each topic area of the course. For example, in the practical management topic area, you'll have a chance to manage the expectations of one of the high-performing members of your team. In the negotiation section, you'll read the case of the botched Time-Warner / CBS negotiations and have a chance to apply your learnings to what went wrong with this failed round of negotiations. Each assignment includes readings from world-class business journals and/or peer-reviewed management science-related academic journals, an animated case study, and possible solutions to the questions you're invited to answer. We hope you enjoy the big update!
What's new in version 7? (Published November 1, 2019)
You asked and we delivered! This year, we've added full, professionally-developed captions to the course. These captions should help you better-retain the management science concepts you're learning in the course, and, if you speak English as a second language, improve your English language skills and build your vocabulary. We hope you enjoy version 7!
What's new in version 7.1? (Published April 13, 2020)
We've updated links to many of the external resources associated with your learning experience. If you find any dead links, send us a message!
What's new in version 7.2? (Published November 1, 2020)
You spoke and we listened! Your expert interviews in this course have been completely re-made and re-imagined. Many of you suggested that more concise, takeaway-driven interview editing would keep your learning experience more engaging. So, all of the expert interviews you'll find in the course are now presented in the "Fantastic Four Takeaways" approach; four of the biggest takeaways from the interview. This should keep your learning experience exciting. You can also now dive into any of these expert interviews deeper, if you like. The full version of all of your expert interviews are now available on the Eazl YouTube channel.
Your course experience will now be much more streamlined. As a part of re-imagining how you experience interviews, the overall length of your learning experience (in terms of minutes / hours watched) will now decrease substantially. Whereas the course was ~8 hours in previous incarnations, now the course is ~4.5 hours long.
The section introductions have been re-created so that now, when you learn a new concept (like "Integrative Bargaining"), a complementary animation or piece of footage exists alongside the delivery of that concept. This should enable you to learn more quickly, and retain more of what you learn.
What's new in version 7.3 (Published November 1, 2021)
In this update, we've added a suite of "Voices from the Field" videos, which is a lecture format that presents answers to management-related questions from a variety of people who work in management back-to-back to one another. For example, we've used this new lecture format to help new managers with common challenges like building trust, giving employees feedback, and coaching a struggling employee. We've also used this lecture format to add more content to the negotiation section of your course. Specifically, we've tried to enable you to gain skills in gaining leverage in negotiations and in communicating when you're negotiating.
What's new in version 7.4 (Published January 1, 2022)
In this update, we've added professionally-developed English-language subtitles to accompany all lectures and interviews that were published in the most recent update. This will be helpful for our community of ESL learners!
