Kyla Cofer, CLC

Keynote Speaker, Leadership Coach, Podcast Host












Kyla is a thought leader - as a podcaster, leadership coach, keynote speaker and writer, she helps leaders excel. Her work focuses on burnout, embracing failure, and podcasting. She's the creator of the Leadership School Podcast, and Podcaster School. 

As a dynamic keynote speaker, story-teller and workshop presenter, Kyla will give you the tools you've been searching for to heal from burnout, embrace failure, and step into being the great leader you were born to be.


Kyla knows what it feels like. She has been through depression, low self-worth, and burnout, and seen the other side. She now embraces her leadership skills and change lives - without burning out. It's Kyla's life's dream that mental and emotional health become cultural standards in a way that encourages long-term commitments to the slow processes of political and social change.



Kyla has been on the starting end of multiple nonprofits and businesses, and has spent almost 20 years in the pursuit of justice through volunteering, donating, supporting, and being an advocate for numerous causes. She holds a B.S. in Family & Human Services from John Brown University, and is certified as a coach through the Life Purpose Institute.

As a small business consultant, Kyla offers leadership coaching, team training and advisory services, as well as bookkeeping and payroll services to small businesses. 

On a more personal note, I take notice of details, and sometimes notice things before they happen or before I'm supposed to know about them. I crave wholeness. And when I say wholeness, I mean I need to see things made whole - anything from kids toys with missing pieces to broken relationships or a perfectly decorated cake. I love traveling, carpentry, and breaking out in dance or a show tune. I have a loud laugh, but I refuse to laugh at those videos of people getting hurt while being stupid. I live in Nashville, TN with my Husband and two entertaining children and we are attempting to visit every playground in the city.
