Episode 2—Building a Flux Mindset: Author April Rinne on Thriving in a World of Change
Adaptable. Resilient. Futurist. Change agent. These are all ways of describing a person and most of us aspire to have just one of these qualities. April Rinne has all of them. She is a fearless advocate, author, and speaker, whose life has been committed to improving the quality of life around her, for both people and the planet.
In her new book, FLUX: 8 Superpowers for Thriving in Constant Change, April brings a global perspective and cross-cultural understanding to how we see, think about, struggle with and ultimately forge relationships with change.
About April Rinne
As a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, one of the 50 Leading Female Futurists in the world, and one of the earliest Estonian e-Residents. Her mission is to connect people, ideas and resources in ways that say, “wow, that’s what the world needs” and “wow, we’d never seen it that way” — and then to see differently and make it happen. Author-consultant-futurist April Rinne helps individuals and organizations rethink and reshape their relationship with change and uncertainty in a world in flux. She is an advisor to startups, corporations, financial institutions, nonprofits, and think tanks worldwide, including Airbnb, Nike, Intuit and the World Bank, as well as governments on five continents. Her latest book, Flux: 8 Superpowers for Thriving in Constant Change, was published this year by Berrett-Koehler.
