Angela AhrendtsApple’s announcement this week that Angela Ahrendts will join their senior management team really caught our attention. With her picture joining the Apple Leadership page on the company’s website, she will become one of the leading women in tech. Her new job will be to take her retail fashion know-how and bring it to the tech world.

How did this Midwest America-born-and-raised woman rise to the top of a global fashion company only to join Apple, the technology darling of Wall Street? Her deep curiosity and an adaptive mindset. On her watch as CEO at Burberry, during the global recession, she watched everything fall apart. But it was here where she earned her stripes as a grounded, healthy leader. Her ability to adapt to changing conditions, think critically, solve hard problems and recover from setbacks, makes her our Grounded Leader of the Week.
