The TIPS Leadership Academy serves the public by providing participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop a vision to lead the legal profession and to improve leadership service in the community as a whole. The TIPS Leadership Academy meets during each Section Leadership Meeting, each Meeting focusing on specific program topics.
- To increase the diversity of leaders within our communities.
- To nurture effective leadership with respect to ethical, professional and community service values.
- To build relationships among leaders from across the country and from disciplines within the profession.
- To raise the level of awareness among lawyers regarding the broad range of issues facing the profession.
BENEFITS TO ACADEMY MEMBERS
In the TIPS Leadership Academy, the participants will be exposed to a wide-range of leaders in the law. These leaders will candidly share their successes and failures in their leadership roles and be available for open dialogue on all issues. Through this process, the Academy members will develop their own leadership style and learn how to put that style into action.
As an added benefit, Academy members will be provided with leadership roles in TIPS substantive committees during the year. This role, which is traditionally reserved for lawyers who have been involved in TIPS for years, will be made available to Academy members immediately. Also, this benefit will afford Academy members national networking opportunities within their chosen fields.
