Clyde Tinnen selected as participant in the state bar of Wisconsin's G. Lane Ware Leadership Academy

Withers is proud to announce that Greenwich partner Clyde Tinnen has been honored as a chosen participant in in the inaugural class of the G. Lane Ware Leadership Academy, which has recently been developed by the State Bar of Wisconsin. Clyde was one of the twenty-three Wisconsin State Bar member attorneys chosen to be a part of this program.

The G. Lane Ware Leadership Academy is a multi-session training program designed to enhance the leadership skills, inspire leadership involvement, build professional networks and foster the professional development of a diverse group of lawyers.

State Bar President Ralph Cagle identified the need for a leadership development program, and wholeheartedly supports the Leadership Development Committee's work in developing the program. “Wisconsin lawyers have a strong history of leadership of our profession, our communities and our public life,” Cagle said. “This is a bold step to assure that we will identify, train, and embed a new generation of lawyer-leaders.”

The mission of the G. Lane Ware Leadership Academy is to provide a diverse and inclusive group of lawyers essential leadership skills, strategies, and resources to empower them to become effective leaders in their careers; their local and state bar associations; their local communities and organizations; and the legal profession.

In support of its mission, the Leadership Academy will strive to:
• Identify and train lawyers who can be called upon by the State Bar of Wisconsin, state and local government entities, local bar associations, and community organizations to serve in leadership and service.
• Nurture effective leadership with respect to ethics and professionalism, resulting in raised ethical professional standards and improved reputation of lawyers in the community.
• Create opportunities for lawyers to build mutually beneficial, meaningful relationships with other lawyer leaders, thereby improving their professional development, confidence, and satisfaction.

“The Academy will equip our lawyers with essential skills, tools, and resources to effectively lead and inspire others,” said Leadership Development Committee Chair Renee Nawrocki. “This program also creates a unique opportunity for lawyers to develop diverse, professional networks and personal relationships with colleagues and to improve their professional confidence and career satisfaction.”
