- Pre-conference PhD/ECR Incubator

The Exeter PhD/ECR Incubator at IPLS 2024

This incubator is a hands-on workshop for PhD students and early career researchers to gain tools and ideas for personal development in the field of leadership research. It will also help participants with developing papers that are in progress and new ideas for future research, drawing on the expertise of Leadership scholars. In this workshop we will discuss the current state of leadership research and explore where the field is moving and new avenues for research. Finally, we will have several “provocative debates” with experts debating hot topics such as “Publish or perish: the way to go or dated model?”, “Do we need further construct development or less in the field of leadership?”, “Transformational leadership theory is dead vs. long live transformational leadership!”, “Use multi methods studies or focus on one major method” and other topics. Join us for a creative, interactive workshop which will be an excellent opportunity to network with other PhD students/early career researchers and Leadership scholars in the field. 

The PhD/ECR leadership incubator is sponsored by the Exeter Centre of Leadership which will award a Rising Leaders Best Paper Award at the end of the event to one of the participants.
