This thesis presents a critical exploration of the reported lives and experiences of managers charged with responsibilities as leaders in a UK local government organization. It seeks to propose new ways of theorising leadership by drawing on discursive and psychoanalytic perspectives that develop a more critical, inter-related psychosocial analysis of managers' biographical narratives,in particular, it examines the importance of exploring leadership dynamics through a poststructuralist feminist analysis of discourse(s), identity/ies and gender.
