Great question! The word „Leiter“ has different meanings depending on gender. Of course, that would not help in the plural (since the plural has no gender in German), but thankfully the two words DO have different plural forms:
- der Leiter → die Leiter (leader → leaders)
- die Leiter → die Leitern (ladder → ladders)
P.S. If you want the word for a female leader, the word would be „die Leiterin“ → „die Leiterinnen“
