Workplace leaders are required to balance the often conflicting demands of different facets of social identity including gender identity, professional identity and ethnic identity. Adopting a social constructionist framework, and drawing on the extensive research of the Wellington Language in the Workplace Project, this paper examines how leaders in a range of professional organisations manage the conflicts and complexities of reconciling different aspects of their leadership role. The analysis identifies a range of different discourse strategies used to accomplish this balancing act, encompassing both formal and formulaic routines in some contexts, alongside informal pragmatic particles and colloquialisms in others. The analysis is contextualised within a theoretical framework developed by the Language in the Workplace project team.
