    What our learners thought about Leading Smarter:

    I attended the Going for Growth and Greater Growth courses at the beginning of 2020, and as a result I have grown my business over the last 12 months to the point where I have needed to employ my first member of staff. As I have never lead or managed people in this capacity before, I wanted to learn some skills and knowledge to give me the confidence to do this to the best of my ability and so I contacted EMS again for help. They explained that the Leadership and Management course could help me fill in the gaps in my knowledge that I felt I was missing. The course delivered on this and then some! There is much more to leading and managing than giving people tasks to complete and I now understand more about my own management style and have tools to be able to give feedback and recognition to staff. I no longer feel like an imposter in my own business and feel confident that I can help grow my team through good leadership and encourage them to achieve their own goals. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is currently in a management position, or has plans to step into such a role in the future.
