Sue Hadfield

Early in my career as an English teacher I was asked by a group of sixth form girls if I could help them deal with their reluctance to speak up in class; their low self esteem; their inability to say no and a dread of criticism. The assertiveness classes that followed proved so popular I ended up teaching my methods to a group of teachers so that they could also teach assertiveness.

I have been teaching assertiveness ever since to groups of people including senior management, teachers, university students, parents and school support staff. After twenty years of school teaching I left to teach personal development courses to community groups and at Sussex University.

In the last few years I have written books based on my teaching and the inspirational people that I have met. 'How to be Assertive' was written with Gill Hasson and I have since written 'Brilliant Positive Thinking' and 'Change One Thing'. My work has been featured in several women's magazines and online magazines and newspapers ( including the Guardian).

Gill Hasson

I teach, train, coach and write. My key motivation is helping people realise their potential; to live their best life!

As a tutor, I work freelance for adult education organisations, training organisations and the University of Sussex. I teach a variety of personal development courses; confidence and self esteem, assertiveness, communication skills and resilience.

I also teach professional development courses: Counselling Skills, Mentoring and ‘PTTLS’ – a course for people training to teach in adult education.

My work as a Career Coach is a result of the years I worked for University of Sussex with mature students on a ‘Career Horizons’ course; giving them the guidance, support and confidence to achieve their potential; to find the work and a career that works for them.

The courses, workshops and the people that I work with inspire the books that I write. I have books on the subjects of Resilience, Communication Skills, Emotional Intelligence. Two of of my books - ‘How to be Assertive’ and ‘Mindfulness’ were WH Smith’s book of the month. (In 2010 and 2013)

As well as writing books, I write articles on personal development / self improvement for magazines such as Psychologies and Natural Health.
