I enjoyed this course. The topics covered are relevant to a wide audience. Each module focuses on a different aspect of friendship - from developing friendships through growing and ending friendships. The course had a great balance of breadth and depth, offering participants additional exercises and readings to supplement the topic area. I highly recommend this course to anyone curious about the nature of friendship.

Have You Forgotten How to Make Friends?

As little kids, making friends is easy and you are very motivated to interact and play with your friends. But as adulthood piles on responsibilities, family, and demanding careers, your motivation and energy to make new friends and engage with old ones seem to wane. 

However, friendships are an integral part of your success and happiness. Having friends is important for your psychological health which can directly impact your work performance and earning potential. That means friends are both good for your health and wallet.
