Angela Ahrendts: Let Peace Begin With Me

As highlighted by 9to5Mac – Senior Vice President of Apple Retail (and former Burberry CEO), Angela Ahrendts, has penned a rather thought-provoking new blog post over on business network LinkedIn, this morning, in which the newly-appointed SVP outlines her approach to the subject of leadership.

“I’ve always tried to focus my comments on simple leadership lessons I’ve learned that might somehow, somewhere, someday help others. I’ll admit, I’ve been struggling recently to find one that’s relevant around the holidays,” the note read.

Ahrendts points to the lyrics of Let There Be Peace On Earth by B.J. Thomas as the inspiration behind her approach to leadership at Apple, as she recalls mentally recounting the phrase: “Let peace begin with me, Let this be the moment now,” over and over again to herself.

“Then it hit me,” the Apple executive wrote. “What better universal leadership lesson to share and reflect on at this time of year?”

Ahrendts was appointed head of Apple’s retail division back in June, and appears to have adapted well to the Apple culture as a whole. The holiday-themed message from the Apple SVP can be read in full over at LinkedIn.
