Colorado Chapter member, Kae Rader, MPA, is celebrating the launch of her new book, Appreciate Leadership: Focus on
What Works to Drive Winning Performance and Build a
Thriving Organization (McGraw-Hill,
2010), which she co-authored with Diana Whitney, Ph.D. and Amanda
Many smart, well-intentioned leaders know that the "command
and control” leadership style they learned a generation ago no longer works.
