May 3rd -  Pre-conference PhD Incubator

The Exeter PhD/ECR Incubator at IPLS 2023

This incubator is a hands-on workshop that will help PhD students and early career researchers gain tools and ideas for personal development in the leadership scholarship field, as well as develop papers that are in progress and new ideas for future research, drawing on the expertise of leadership scholars. In this workshop we will also 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?”, “Is endogeneity the end all and be all for making causal inference?”, “Transformational theory is dead vs. long live transformational theory!”. Join us for a creative, interactive workshop which will provide an excellent opportunity to network with other PhD students 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.
