Summary or Abstract : This descriptive, interpretive study was conducted to learn about the relationship between personal identity and work among high-performance information technology (IT) managers. IT managers were chosen as a research group because they are in a unique position to shape business today through the use and development of technology and to influence society tomorrow through their grooming of the next generation of IT managers. The sample of 22 men and women between the ages of 22 and 65 were designated high performance because their employers singled them out for ongoing leadership development in recognition of their contributions. Data collection involved a personal interview and a personal questionnaire which captured biographical information. Qualitative data analysis revealed five predominant modes of engagement between work and identity among the IT managers: preoccupied, resonant, self-actualizing, self-projecting, and detached. The modes of engagement are mutable and reflect the systemic interaction between person and environment and thus the way people engage their identity with work at any one time. People who exhibit the preoccupied mode of engagement are experiencing angst or conflict about the actual nature of the work being done in relation to identity while placing a very high level of importance on work for identity. People who display the resonant mode of engagement are naturally drawn to the technical day-to-day work tasks they do, often have a professional identity indicative of their work title, and place a high level of importance on work for identity. Seeing work as a vehicle of self-actualization or realizing one's potential is the principle characteristic of people exhibiting the self-actualizing mode of engagement, along with a high importance on work for identity. People displaying the self-projecting mode of engagement very much impose their own uniqueness upon their work, expressing key values or philosophies upon whatever work they might do, whether it is in IT or an entirely different industry, and they assign a medium to medium-high importance on work for identity. People exhibiting the detached mode of engagement express key aspects of themselves upon the work and assign the work a low level of importance on work for identity..
