Dear Colleagues and Friends,
This month marks the 1st anniversary of Whirling Chief! For a year now, we have been writing, posting, video-blogging, and opening the dialogue to a whole slew of topics related to work! 

In the last four months, we have attended and presented keynotes in such recognized conferences as ILO’s Future of Work, HR Tomorrow Conference, World Technology, Innovation, Entrepreneurship Conference and Work Human Conference.

What’s the Meaning of All This?
Everywhere we go, we have been asking some timely questions:
What does work mean to us? What will it mean tomorrow? How can our community help more people and organizations discover their WHY? How can we, as 21st century professionals, play a role in evolving the work experience for others? In what different ways could we collectively think about leadership? How about holding those in power more accountable? What’s the role of teams in creating the right culture? How can Whirling Chief support organizations to evolve their philosophies, people strategies, and work practices? 
These are the kind of topics that require years more discussion, collaboration, engagement, and reach. 

Our Numbers Continue to Grow
In a year, with only the single sponsorship of SESIL PIR Consulting, Whirling Chief has been able to consistently grow its community numbers. We’ve already topped 1000 subscribers on our site and 2000 followers on our Facebook page, and our user stats are very comparable with industry benchmarks.

Our Mission is Clear
We here at Whirling Chief are determined to help shift the context! To do so, we want to empower today’s working professionals to connect to forward-looking and aspirational models, methodologies, hypotheses, research findings, and data to evolve their thinking, as well as their business practices in a way that’s most suitable for human nature.

Powered by our WHY, we first started building a network of like-minded thinkers (About Us), and we are now developing an academic community to support our research activities. Some of the names with whom we have connected and are exploring opportunities include:

Adam Grant
Susan David
James Doty
Dan Ariely
Christine Porath
John Budd

We’re Happy to Put it in Writing
To complement our scientific work, we are very excited to announce we have committed to writing a book in collaboration with published author Fateme Banishoeib – to be published by the end of 2017! 

Time for a Summer Break
All these efforts require us to temporarily slow down our content development as we build up a sponsorship network to support the expansion of our reach and efforts. As a result, we will be taking a break in the months of July and August as Whirling Chief brings on new sponsors.

OK, Now it’s Your Turn…
If you are in a position of support, we kindly ask you to please consider one of our sponsorship options and/or connect us with potential donors. For newcomers and those who have yet to take action, we would appreciate you supporting us by subscribing to Whirling Chief and our YouTube Channel.

With expanded sponsorship, we plan to further evolve our site (target to audience) and curate new content (leading self > leading others > leading organizations > leading change) so anyone from any sector or profession willing to learn on leadership and people management topics can self-educate according to their specific needs.
