Misha Glouberman’s course on Negotiation and Communication provided a great balance of abstract concepts, games, simulations, personal reflection and real world case studies that was an accessible and logical entry into something we engage in everyday, often without much forethought, rigour or intention.

This course encourages us to see that negotiation is something that happens nearly any time human beings interact. The course furnishes us--often in a fun way!--with the vocabulary, tools, and techniques we need to better engage in communications and negotiations of all kinds, and we come to see our own personal situations in a new and illustrative light. I would recommend this course to anyone!   - Steve Sayer, Visual Effects Artist, Soho VFX
