NYU Wagner's Paul Light Launches 'Light on Leadership' Blog In The Washington Post

Professor Paul Light has launched a new blog for the Washington Post entitled "Light on Leadership: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom with NYU Wagner's Paul Light." Light's online commentary on the national government will appear every Thursday on the newspaper's website. His debut column April 15, 2010, "Slimming the Federal Leadership" -- coauthored by Russ Feingold, U.S. Senator from Wisconsin and member of the Senate Budget Committee -- drew more than 300,000 hits.

His second column (Apr. 22, 2010) focuses on CEO compensation levels at nonprofit organizations. His latest (June 3, 2010), looks at what President Obama can learn from the oil spill debacle.

Professor Light is NYU Wagner's Paulette Goddard Professor of Public Service and founding principal investigator of the school's Organizational Performance Initiative.
