These are my notes and take aways from John Maxwell’s interview of Angela Ahrendts, the CEO of Burberry.

  • Culture trumps vision
  • Trust is needed to make change
  • The task of leadership is to create culture
  • Building a culture of mission focus keeps ego at bay
  • Intuition is the greatest output of trust and strong culture
  • Burberry values feeling over knowing
  • “I grew up in a physical world speaking English, but my kids are growing up in a digital world speaking social”
  • Building a culture of trust frees people to act on their leadership intuition which results in innovation and the ability to move at a fast pace
