what we do

Support the modern pro

& modern org

We're a boutique coaching, training, & consulting firm that supports new and rising leaders as well as the senior executives who work with them.

Senior Leader Coaching

We offer support for established leaders who want to better connect with their new employees, teams, and partners, while being set up for personal and professional success long-term.

We'll help you understand what any sticking points with your team are really all about and help you navigate improved communication and more effective partnerships.

Rising Leader Coaching

Stepping into a new leadership role is a big step and without the proper support it can be confusing, overwhelming, and difficult even for star employees.

We provide best-in-class, supportive, and measurable coaching for rising associates to ease transitions and optimize performance.

Training, Facilitation & Consulting

Our programs are grounded in social science research, positive psychology, and tap breakthrough neuroscience. 

Whether you're looking for a dynamic facilitator, engaging corporate training program, or consulting to help ensure you're building a business and team deliberately, we've got you covered.

our approach

Evidence based work 


We pull from a range of disciplines to help individuals and groups truly understand situations and blockers from a clear perspective, build new cognitive patterns, facilitate programs and deliver effective trainings.

We help clients shift mindsets, create compelling visions, fully experience successes and learn more effectively from mishaps.

Co-Active Coaching

Centered on the idea that people are creative, resourceful, and whole, we don't attempt to fix anyone or anything but rather support individuals and teams become the best, more effective, and fulfilled versions of themselves. 


Incorporating the latest in neuroscience and brain-based research we draw on proven models and methods to better understanding behavior, thinking patterns, and establishing new habits

Adult Learning Theory

Human potential cannot be maximized if approached wrong. We tap the leaps made in recent years on adult learning theory in our original workshops and trainings as well as culture work.

Social Sciences

From anthropology to positive psychology, social science concepts are part of our approach to understanding both individuals and organizations: What matters, how they tick, what norms exist, and what are the penalties for not adhering to norms.

From Our Founder

What makes you think new leaders need support?

I'm a certified coach & corporate trainer who's worked with hundreds of professionals from C-level executives to entry level professionals to entrepreneurs and politicians. While the backbone of great coaching is transferable across these groups there's something about the experience of being a young executive and new leader that's different. 

Jumping from managing 3 people to 15 is big. Overseeing a team across 3 time zones is much different from your direct reports working remotely on Fridays.

And let's not forget about the established leaders who can feel like their worlds are rocked when new talent joins their leadership team and something just feels different.

These groups require specific support.

That's what I do.

coaching client

“I’ve been working with Jane Scudder for six months now and have been really happy with the growth she’s helped me achieve.

Jane challenges me, in a highly supportive way, to see things from a new perspective. She helped me discover effective and creative ways to focus on what really mattered and recognize my accomplishments as I was juggling a long-distance move, a new profession, and moving away from my sons. In addition, knowing I have to report what I’ve accomplished between sessions helps me focus and turn good ideas into solid action.

I highly recommend Jane Scudder as a coach!”
