We help leadership teams better understand each other, develop shared goals, see different perspectives, and be united - not fractured - by differences.

“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!”

Lisa B., Chicago, IL


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!
