1. recruitment process

1.1. identifying hiring needs: identify the skills, knowledge and experience needed for the roles

1.2. Preparing job description: tell about the company background and have a check list for candidates to compare themselves to

2.2. Taloy's theory: employees are motivated by monetary values

2.3. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs: people are motivated by different factors and values ranging from basic survival needs such as foods and shelter to spiritual needs as self actualization

3. Good leadership styles

3.1. telling style: be specific about details of the tasks

3.2. selling style: similar to "telling" but giving more autonomy and more friendly

5. course review

5.1. self reflection: I have learned a lot through this course. The knowledge are concrete, specific and applicable in real life. For examples, knowing leadership styles and recruitment process can come in handy in the future. I also had a chance to understand better the Maslow's hierarchy of needs. It is also a good bonus in the end getting into employment laws. I think the course is well organized.
