what we do

Support the modern pro

& modern org

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

1:1 Coaching for Senior Leaders

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 are really all about and help you navigate improved communication and more effective partnerships.

1:1 Coaching for Rising Leaders

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.

Facilitation & Workshops

We offer short and long-term programming to fit needs of large and small orgs. Our approach is grounded in social science research, positive psychology, and taps breakthrough neuroscience. 

Our trainings are dynamic and relevant with over 95% of attending reporting *actually* using the material after.

“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!”

My company has worked with Jane on multiple occasions from Negotiation Strategies workshops to Personal Narrative writing. Jane has an extremely approachable yet sophisticated form of communicating. She is patient and ensures that all attendees are getting the most of the course while moving along for those that want more.

Jane comes highly recommend for any and all business workshops!
