Interacting on a daily basis with colleagues and superiors in the workplace poses interesting and subtle discursive challenges for individuals, especially those in leadership positions. Through their talk, leaders need to simultaneously construct themselves as responsible professionals oriented to the transactional goals of the organisation, and as caring colleagues, concerned with developing and maintaining supportive and positive workplace relationships.
This talk illustrates how the Wellington Language in the Workplace (LWP) Project tracked such discursive accomplishments by female and male leaders in a range of different New Zealand organisations, including some with distinctive ethnic orientations. The distinctive and innovative approach of the LWP Project will be discussed and illustrated.
