The ability to negotiate one's multiple social identities has become an important issue for many people. This thesis seeks to understand how multiple identities affect interpersonal relations and communication patterns by using a mixed method research design. I assess the impact of intrapersonal and interpersonal interactions on relational coordination within teams, which propose in turn affects the performance, job satisfaction and emergence of group affect. This research also considers I important potential moderators of the relationship between identity patterns and relational coordination which may serve as important points of leverage for organisations. This study contributes to both the identity and team literature.
