Prior experience on this subject: none:
As an engineering student, I've always enjoyed this kind of subject, so I decided to enroll on a MOOC about it, since there was no way I could get formal education at this point and felt that reading a random book on my own wouldn't be the best option.
After completing all the assignments I must say that the course title is misleading, what it is really about is how should you help yourself and others to find which future do you want to have (so to say) and why is that important in organizations (all backed up by studies, which I found to be very interesting).
If you engage in this course, be prepared to: read ~3 articles/week, engage in forums (which are part of the evaluation, because of lack of time I didn't do this and probably that damaged my learning) and reflect on yourself (which was also a bit hard to me, since it's hard to define a future path if you still hadn't touched all the subejcts of your area of study, I ended up not doing that particular assignment - but there are many others, around 10).
There's also optional learning assignments which suggest you to practice what you learn on real people and then evaluate the results, which was something I did not do (unfortunately, due to my social context it was hard to find people willing to participate) but found to be very interesting.
