The Leadership Quarterly winner of the 2019 best paper award is…

Thank you to all those who voted for the best paper award. A subcommittee of editors used various metrics and expert judgment to select a short list of five papers for the board to rank. We are proud of all five papers; and all five papers are worthy finalists. However, we have to identify an overall winner who will receive a prize from the Center of Creative Leadership.

Based on the votes of the entire editorial board and editorial team, I am pleased to announce that the winner for the 2019 Best Paper Award is
