MOOCs to Increase Your Personal Power: Negotiation Strategies and Persuasion

12

Not at all, Ali, the opposite is true: it was kind and considerate of you to say that.

On my end, it's just some work to prepare card, but that's all there is to it.
And yes, while in person I might not always tell people when they are being rude, I say it straight it here as that's part of learning as well.

I don't always reply as I get caught up sometimes, but you were nothing short of a class act there.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

Oh, P.S.: on directness as a learning tool, I recommend "Radical Candor" (but you will see a similar lesson in Social Power as you reach the workplace module).

Kim Scott in there says that people who don't give feedback to others are being selfish and too concerned about being liked, rather than being concerned to help others grow.

Of course, directness is not an excuse to be rude, and must still be delivered respectfully.

Thanks for the feedback!

Perhaps your latter note on giving feedback is also a sign of good self-esteem. It reminds me of your point on "trying hard to please" where people don't say what they think out of fear of offending someone. I like the idea that holding back that constructive feedback is also selfish :).

I'll be sure to keep an eye out for the article when it's up.

Congrats,

Ali

I wholeheartedly wanted to thank you Ali for the suggestion and the piece of gold you posted here in the Forum. I find this community simply astonishing and even though for now I am not actively participating a lot here, in the power university Lucio made sure that while having a lection we have access to posts and additional content that has been posted elsewhere, so I am literally reading everything.

I will be taking the course on Negotiation as well and, although I think you covered excellently the content, I hope I can come here and add a contribution too.

I try to like all the posts to show appreciation for the authors, but sometimes we have to go further. So hats off to you, guys!

I just wanted to make a quick language correction, since I wrongfully translated Lektion (German) as Lection, instead of lesson, or perhaps course module 🙂

Glad you enjoyed it, Serena! And, as far as the community being astonishing, I feel the exact same way :).

I write these reviews in the hopes that they will be helpful to the people reading. So, if you'd like to see a finished and updated version of that review, I recommend taking a look at this article—written by me and edited by Lucio.


BTW, if you're planning on signing up for this course, a quick heads up: you're required to record a real, live negotiation with a negotiation partner. And, in my experience, negotiation partners in this course—especially ones who also speak English—can be hard to find since you have to post a request for one in a sea of other requests from people all around the world.

So, if after doing everything you can you still can't find a negotiation partner, you can drop me a note and I'd be more than happy to team up with you.

Thank you so much Ali, sure I want and will take a look!

I confess that when you said that I was intimidated (negotiate with others, video record it, etc.). But then I thought, well that is why I am here, and getting all this support must not be for anything. So I started today and am glad I did. I will do as you said, look for somebody available and do my best to find it, but it means a lot knowing that, in case I do not find anybody, I still can practice with you. Much appreciated!

Hey Lucio,

Would it be OK with you to move the finished review review over to the AliScarlett account?

It's currently under the old 01ascarlett account (which I only use for forum posts now).

Is that OK?

For sure, done.
