Ep 36: Colleen Callander – Modern Leadership

by | 6 Dec 2021

What does it mean to lead by design? For many it’s about building culture, routine and structure to enable staff to shine and find success. For today’s guest, Colleen Callander, it’s also about being empowered to lead with confidence in business, and in life and that takes courage.

Colleen Callander, an award-winning CEO, has a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record in brand growth strategies.  The former CEO of SportsGirl, and founder of Mentor Me Women, Colleen is sharing her story, and her thoughts on leadership, brand development and the retail industry in her new book Leader By Design.

In this episode of the podcast we chat about:

  • Colleen’s remarkable career, starting as a retail assistant and working through the ranks to become CEO of SportsGirl;
  • How to overcome limiting beliefs;
  • What it means to be a ‘leader by design’; and
  • What ‘kindness as a new currency for leaders’ means.

Colleen also shares her advice for aspiring leaders and gives us the low-down on her new program ‘Mentor Me Women’.
