In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Jenaye White are joined by Kadi Cole, founder of MinistryChick.com and author of Developing Female Leaders. During their conversation, they discuss leaning into a place of learning and how constructive feedback and supportive leadership are vital for women.
“The book is me researching how to help leaders do better at creating cultures, environments, and conversations that help support and develop female leaders in their churches.”
“The point of being a learner is that you don’t know what you are doing yet.”
“It’s easy to fall into the trap that we want to stay in the spaces that we feel confident and competent, but there is so much more to learn.”
“I want to have integrity that what I say is fully what I believe.”
“Many times the church is silent on these issues and it ends up being a real disconnect for people in the things they are struggling in implementing in their worklife.”
“As a personal leader and a team leader, I am always asking the Lord: I had good intentions when I started am I still working by means of the Spirit or have I moved into that area of the flesh?”
“When we fall victim to the pressures of other people it can cause us to violate what’s really most important to us.”
“As a teenager, my job is to teach him to think rather than modify his behavior.”
“As believers we are all called to ministry and to make an impact.”
“Women very rarely get someone who takes the time to sit down and analyze what they just did and help them see what is good that they should keep doing and what could be better and then do it in a way that believes they will have another opportunity and do better the next time.”
