Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because Professor Johnston is a professor who wants to know all her students on a personal level. She learns your interests, dislikes, and what makes you stand out. Her class is a clan-type atmosphere which means that my colleagues felt like family, and we were all friendly towards each other and helped one another. She is funny, and extremely animated, but still stern on her class rules without being mean. I learned so much from her classroom, and how to be a good leader. She is my favorite Professor at Loyola University, and I would recommend ALL business majors to take her class.
What I gained from this course was, how to be a leader. I learned the ways to be successful in a corporate setting, and eventually how to lead my own business. I learned the importance of being yourself, and how first impressions are everything. I learned that people in the workplace do not respond well to someone who is very demeaning, diplomatic, and shows no personality. Also, I learned the importance of communication and to not only stress my needs, but to listen to others needs and how to help others and not just for your own personal gain. I also learned how to do public speeches, and to "never let them see you sweat :)."

Advice for students:
This class is mainly small group assignments, and only one big test on Chapters 1-5 in the beginning of the semester. Towards the end of the semester you have a big project that is worth a lot of points, so do not wait until the last minute to start on it. The advice I would give is, to not be scared of her bubbly type A personality, and to enter the class telling yourself to be yourself, and know your life story to share to the class. From everyone knowing where you come from and how you learn, can help you excel in the classroom. This class will raise your confidence, and make you feel like you can take on anything communication wise.
