Kadi Cole

Kadi has always had a love for learning and serving those in need. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Pacific Lutheran University (Tacoma, WA) and served as a registered nurse for several years in the Veteran’s Medical Center in-patient Mental Health Unit. She earned a Master's Degree In Human Resource Development at Palm Beach Atlantic College (West Palm Beach, FL) where she also served as Dean of Student Development.
In 2001, Kadi was recruited by her local church to help scale a fast-growing faith community. She served 16 years at Christ Fellowship Church (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) leading in a variety of critical leadership roles as the church grew from 3,500 to 23,000, launched eight campuses, and exceeded $50m budget. Her final role was as the first Executive Director of Multisite in which she oversaw all campuses, built a campus launch strategy, and created the Kaléo School of Leadership. In 2016, Kadi transitioned from full-time church leadership to working directly with leaders in business and ministry through Kadi Cole & Company. Kadi works extensively with multi-site churches, technology businesses, and individual leaders from a variety of professional settings. In 2019, she published the best selling book, Developing Female Leaders, out of her desire to see the organizations she consults utilize all the leadership capacity within their teams.
Kadi lives in sunny South Florida with her husband and their teenage son. She loves visiting her roots in Montana, garage sales, intense Scrabble games, home DIY projects, and potluck dinners with friends. Plus, she’s always reading at least 4 books at a time.
