The environmental, social, political, and economic conditions we face at the beginning of the 21st Century have forever changed the roles and responsibilities of today’s leaders. The world is changing, and we must learn and change with it.
A critical step in becoming an effective leader is to assess honestly one’s own understanding of what it means to be a good leader, and to gain insight into one’s own personal leadership skills and style.
To survive and grow in this changing world, leaders are discovering that new, more sustainable and inclusive approaches to leading are essential. These requirements are redefining who leaders are, what they do, and where they reside within a group. They are even redefining the very nature of the relationship between the leaders and those who, historically, have been called followers.
Furthermore, evidence is mounting worldwide that leaders and organizations who ignore these changing requirements and continue to adhere to traditional leadership identities and definitions put their entire enterprise in jeopardy.
The Callaway Leadership Institute offers one-on-one confidential executive consultations, as well as a variety of practical leadership development activities including topic-specific virtual workshops and courses. We also offer, in person or online, Effective 21st Century Leadership: The 7 Aspirations, a year-long comprehensive leadership development program to organizations seeking to strengthen the leadership capabilities of key employees.
The contexts we’ve been used to have shifted irrevocably and are calling for new ways of adapting to many conditions that have never existed before. Each of us must cultivate our leadership capacities and assume responsibility to manifest creative solutions.

Callaway’s leadership development style and approach is one best suited for the troubled world we are in that requires strong relational skills paired with deep content knowledge and capacity to use information technology as an enabler of both learning and execution of tasks, as well as monitoring and evaluation for further learning.

“I first met Marguerite in 2009 as one of her students, attending her Leadership Module in South Africa. The fact that we are now colleagues; as are many more of her former students throughout Southern Africa, is a testament to her commitment and passion for the continued development of people. Her worldwide experience enables her to deliver very relevant ‘leadership’; from corporate-level multinationals in the USA to Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in rural Africa, it works! Engaging with Marguerite secures an effective, collaborative, lasting partnership.”

“Marguerite became my mentor and coach in developing our NGO’s youth leadership programming. I was personally very fortunate to have Ms. Callaway as a lecturer, as she truly inspired her students to think outside the box and create new practical ways to navigate the world of international development. She had faith in our work and helped us grow our programming and leadership skills. Under her mentorship, our youth leadership program grew, becoming more professional, taking on an enhanced global platform in South Africa, Malaysia, and Canada; inspiring youth globally to start their own NGOs.”
