I do not understand why, I have to admit, since she was doing better with Rand (and other things) before she became subservient to Cadsuane. And with Cadsuane's track record of failure in handling Rand, there wouldn't seem all that much reason to hold her in awe.

Perhaps Cadsuane used Compulsion on Nynaeve?
Cadsuane cannot use the OP on Nynaeve because of one of her ter'angreals

True, but then, what other reason could Nynaeve have for giving up a successful approach in favor of a severely flawed one?

Although she won't admit it, Nynaeve admires Cadsuane.

Be advised that Gonzo is almost never being serious.

I do know that Nynaeve admires Cadsuane, but I wonder what for. In her interactions with Rand, Cadsuane hasn't shown any skill that I'm aware of. There were only two things that saved her from being booted out forcefully. First, the fact that Min said she had to teach something, and Rand assumed that he had to be somewhat nice to her so as not to scare her away. Second, that the Aiel assumed that Cadsuane had been responsible for saving Rand from Fain's magic man-eathing mist.

An added advantage which Cadsuane abused was the fact that Rand had better (or more constricting, at least) manners than she has. If it had been me she had slapped, I would have struck back.
Come to think of it: it is going to be interesting to see how Rand deals with her now that's at least somewhat come to his senses.

Nynaeve admires Cadsuane because she wants to be a respected old lady. In her present role as a beautiful young woman society makes it difficult for her to solve all her problems by yelling at people and hitting them with sticks. She does it anyway, but it's not easy for her. As a cranky old woman she would be allowed to yell and hit to her heart's content. She sees in Cadsuane the culmination of all her life's ambitions.
