That’s a great list, thanks for sharing!


I really enjoyed Leadership in 21st Century Organizations, I found it to be a really well taught, well rounded and thought provoking course. It takes you through the mythical (based in truth) story of a new CEO of an airline manufacturer and the challenges they faced. They also described Kotter’s 8 steps for applying innovation in the clearest way I’ve seen, essential for leadership in these rapidly changing times. 


I would also add Negotiation Fundamentals to your list. It’s a great course on learning the basics of negotiation including reviewing common approaches and their counter-argument.
