Theano Coaching LLC
After 30 years as a software engineer, I earned a Master of Applied Positive Psychology degree in 2006. My approach to coaching has been shaped both by my long experience as a mentor and team leader in industry and by my solid grounding in the scientific study of human well-being.
I belong to the Silicon Valley Change executive coaching network. We work primarily with mid-level managers and executives to help them take action to benefit the business and move their careers forward.
I also serve as a writing coach. I've facilitated workshop reviews of more than 800 pieces of writing. I work individually and in workshops to help people build writing skill and confidence.
Education - Higher
Kathryn Britton, Master of Applied Positive Psychology, former software engineer, is a member of the Silicon Valley Change executive coaching network (
) delivering short-term high-impact coaching to middle management in high tech firms. She is also a writing coach and facilitator of writers' workshops.
Coaching can help people take a new look at what is going on around them. By talking things through with a trusted and interested coach in a safe and confidential setting, people hear their own best ideas emerge.
