This long Diploma course is serious and workbooks and assignments are set. Leadership is not about watching videos alone but discussing, considering, suggesting and then making decisions. The Educational Announcements and the Q/A ensure that this course is always up to date.

This course is split into three sections:
Generations in workplace
8 things to know Millennials
The Skeldon approach
Dressing Gown theory
Managing Baby Boomers
Managing a multi-generational workplace
The emphasis throughout in giving practical examples and the setting of research topics. You - the students from 166 countries - know far more than I do about your own culture, your own skills and your own workplace environments. I bring to the course my academic and work-based background, (too many) years of experience and a willingness to listen.
Many many lectures about the generations - interspersed with clips from films which I had the privilege of acting in - and some exercises/questions for you to answer.
Dressing gown theory
So, some new(ish) and some old.
But all relevant.

love detailed oriented people, and this instructor not only has a vision, he takes the best time to explain himself and his method
So far i am finding the course interesting, relatable and insightful. My primary interest is understanding human behaviour and helping others be better versions of themselves...grow, develop, be more! I am hoping that this course helps me in some way, no matter how small, to be a better leader.
I have been a Leadership Researcher & Coach/Facilitator, having served as a Counselor and Deputy Director in the Confederation of Indian Industry's Suresh Neotia Centre of Excellence for Leadership. I signed up for this course because of the Instructor's depth - in instructional approach, honesty, and subject matter expertise - not to mention that the Diploma comes at a genuine extra cost - of no extra monies payable but sincere, back-breaking work. I have just started studying, and finding the content, design and challenges built into the course extremely inviting, an would recommend anyone serious to learn these subjects as well as wishing to acquire a legitimate qualification to dump all courses and take this one. Of course, there I opine apropos my personal background and interests. On a more general note - very pleased. A very, very cogent approach to acquisition of skills and transfer of learning. Great work.
This is my first course with Udemy and tutor Chris. I must say I have become a fan of his work. I am a teacher myself and I know the difference between a good content and a great content. This course has great content. It shows the efforts the tutor has put into to make it more holistic than specific. The course content emphasis on research. There are workbooks, articles and videos along with tasks and homework with it. Everything goes with the flow. The course starts on an easy tone but becomes tougher towards the end. You will come to realise that this course is tough thats why meaningful. Take up this course only if you are serious about Diversity, inclusion and leadership. If you do take up be ready to see the changes in you and your mindset towards the end. I Thank Chris for taking time and creating such wonderful content for this course. I appreciate it and proud to have known him and his work through this course

Great speaker, Although it is a video, Chris tried to connect with the audience and he manage to capture all the attention. Great course. It would be nice to see more examples.
Happy to know that the speaker is a person with so many experience and skillful. Thanks Professor! I learn so much in every section on this course. This is very recommended to be take
To be fair, I have only just started the course (6%) so treat this review with care! The subject matter is clear and relevant. There are topics raised in the Q/A sections. The Captions are clear. Plenty of resources. A good start UPDATE Have now finished Generation X and Baby Boomers. A lot of this resonates. Very clear and very well structured. UPDATE Have now finished Millennials and only just noticed the questions in the Q/A section. I've answered BUT it doesn't seem like anyone else is joining in.
The Skeldon approach is a completely new thing for me and is something very interesting. Thank you for this insight!
