Lessons on burnout and leadership – Colleen Callander


Hard work, passion and business nous were the qualities which had propelled Colleen Callander to the dizzying heights of CEO of two iconic Australian fashion brands, Sportsgirl and Sussan. But, she very nearly didn’t get there.

Colleen was saying yes to everyone and everything – trying to please everyone – and that resulted in her hitting the proverbial brick wall. Yep, she was completely exhausted! And needed time away to look after herself.

Colleen’s written a book about her experience. It’s called Leader by Design, with inspiring lessons from her 30 years in retail.
