Faculty Spotlight: Rick Wolff on Real Time with Bill Maher

The New School is proud to announce Assistant Professor Rick Wolff will be appearing on this Friday’s edition of Real TiRichardWolff(c)DonUsnerme with Bill Maher on HBO. Those with access to HBO can tune in live this Friday, July 25 at 10pm.
With or without a subscription, you can tune in for the live “Overtime” segment that airs on the web at 11pm.
Other guests on the show will include Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! and noted defender of reason Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Faculty Spotlight: Nina L. Khrushcheva

ninaNina L. Khrushcheva is an Associate Professor in the Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs, and a senior fellow at the World Policy Institute, where she directs The Russian Project. She previously taught at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, and is the author of Imagining Nabokov: Russia Between Art and Politics and The Lost Khrushchev: A Journey into the Gulag of the Russian Mind.

Khrushcheva is also  the great-granddaughter of Nikita Khrushchev; her mother was his granddaughter. Yet Nina grew up calling the one-time Soviet leader “Grandfather” because her real grandfather, Leonid, had been written out of the family history. Her book, “The Lost Khrushchev” explains what happened, and rebuts a smear which arose after the Soviet Union’s collapse: that Leonid, in truth a brave wartime pilot, had been a traitor. Khrushcheva has been in the media spotlight recently for her commentary on issues and conflicts in Russia.

In an interview on Ronan Farrow Daily on MSNBC, Nina answers the question, “How much longer can a power that hands out the hardware to shoot down commercial airliners, murdering hundreds of innocent people play the role of legitimate world power?” 

Her book, “The Lost Khrushchev,” is reviewed in an article in The Economist: Lost in Translation.

In “The Silver Fox of Dictatorship and Democracy” in Project Syndicate, Khrushcheva offers commentary on Eduard Shevardnadze as “one of the most corrupt politicians his country ever saw.”

In her article, “Inside Vladimir Putin’s Mind: Looking Back in Anger” Nina argues, “at the risk of sounding simplistic, one comparison still cannot be overlooked in addressing Putin’s vindictiveness, and that is to Joseph Stalin.”

In a video on Bloomberg Business Week, “Putin Will Blame Ukraine for Conflict: Khrushcheva,” Professor Khrushcheva discusses the mixed signals coming from Vladimir Putin who is seeking a cease-fire with Kiev, yet amassing troops along the border.

Organization Development Network of New York hosts CoachingOurselves Event

COFSAll Milano students are welcome to register and attend. Organizational Change Management Students may be particularly interested.

It’s well understood in the field of learning and development that 70% of learning is informal, on the job, and experience based, 20% is coaching and mentoring, and 10% is comprised of formal learning interventions and structured courses. But what does this mean in practice?

Co-founded by Phil LeNir and Henry Mintzberg in 2007, CoachingOurselves is a methodology for managers that builds community, stimulates exchange of perspectives, and encourages team cohesion. CoachingOurselves offers a novel approach to developing leaders and transforming organizations based on the 70/20/10 framework; it uses tools to explore a wide range of topics created by more than forty leading management thinkers including Henry Mintzberg, Marshall Goldsmith, David Cooperrider, and Michael Beers.

Join Phil and ODNNY to learn more about this methodology and gain insight into how you can leverage the 70/20/10 framework in your own practice.
