    Join us for our June Membership Meeting - Crafting Meaningful Professional Development Plans with Jennifer Bouman-Steagall

    Culture change and culture alignment are common themes found in organizational strategic planning initiatives. Effective culture change can’t happen until individuals take ownership and responsibility for the role they each play in moving the organization forward and achieving the organization’s strategic goals.

    Professional development plans create important opportunities for this type of alignment between individual and organizational interests, as well for motivating employees to engage at a higher level. Outside of work, personal growth and development serves an equally important purpose of helping each of us find and pursue our best selves. What does your personal and professional development plan look like? Join us for this informative and engaging program as we explore using a SWOOP analysis (a superhero version of SWOT), SMART goals, and other helpful acronyms, tips, and strategies for crafting effective professional development plans.


    About Jennifer

    Red Kite founder Jennifer Bouman-Steagall is engaging, dynamic, compelling, entertaining, and genuinely passionate about her work. She also happens to be a highly skilled management-side employment litigation attorney with over 19 years of experience representing Oregon and Washington employers.

    In 2010 Jennifer left law firm life to open a solo private practice called Employment Law Outsourcing (ELO). ELO is the formal legal defense side of Jennifer’s practice and continues to be the name under which Jennifer represents clients in legal matters filed at the agency level and in state and federal court.

    Over the next 3 years ELO grew into more than an employment law practice; it became a better business practice. To give the prevention-focused, organizational development side of her practice its own voice, Jennifer launched Red Kite as a d.b.a. of ELO in 2013. It doesn’t take long to see Jennifer’s passion for training and her commitment to helping businesses grow and succeed. Jennifer’s clients consider her to be a trusted business partner and effective on-site trainer with a reputation for professionalism, integrity, enthusiasm and creativity. She is proud to be a favorite speaker for human resource organizations, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, the Oregon Employer’s Council, and the Portland State University HR Certificate Professional Development Program.
