Newly Released ‘BOLD Leadership’ Book Encourages Businesses to Identify Leaders to Drive Positive Change

Medecision executive, author, and leadership pro Chris LaVictoire Mahai uncovers the secrets of BOLD leaders and their importance for organizational success

DALLAS, TX – September 25, 2018 – Medecision, the leader in population health and care management solutions, announced today the launch of BOLD: Essential Leadership For Transformative Change, a new book by Chris LaVictoire Mahai, President of Aveus, a division of Medecision. The book offers guidance on the leadership characteristics and behaviors needed to drive bold, positive change and, in turn, organizational success, during times of dynamic change.

“BOLD reinforces that transformation succeeds when there is a BOLD leader at the helm. And when a transformation fails, that unique and rare leader is often missing,” said Mahai. “The goal of BOLD was not to be yet another book on leadership, but rather leverage the insights gathered from research and hundreds of conversations with BOLD leaders to help businesses identify extraordinary individuals at all levels within a company who embody a unique set of qualities. My hope is that this book serves as a guide for business leaders in this accelerating environment of change and innovation. By identifying and leveraging BOLD leaders in their unique capacity, executives can transform their organization into one that can pivot quickly and seize opportunities.”

BOLD: Essential Leadership For Transformative Change is Mahai’s third book. BOLD leverages her more than 25 years of experience in leading, developing and implementing business and marketplace strategies. Through her work with executive teams and bold leaders across industries, Chris brings a unique perspective to the challenges leaders face and understands the requirements to drive material and positive outcomes across local, national, and global markets.

Influential leaders have called the book insightful and invaluable. Dr. Reed K. Holden, Founder of Holden Advisors and Author, shared, “I have been in lots of leadership discussions lately. They tend to focus on people, not characteristics. You know the drill, this person is a great leader, and this one isn’t. Chris’ book, BOLD, is focused on the characteristics of leaders who can drive positive, dramatic and fast growth in organizations. Who doesn’t want that?!”

As president of Aveus, a global strategy consultancy and division of Medecision, Chris leads the consulting practice and plays a key role in driving business strategy and engagements, helping complex organizations address the changes needed to enable successful growth, customer experiences and innovation to ultimately transform their business.
