Hi there, I’m Alexis.

Co-Founder of Pearlside, Chief of Staff, Start-up Advisor, Author, Keynote Speaker

Welcome! I’m Alexis Monville, Co-Founder of Pearlside, a firm dedicated to building sustainable and high-impact teams and organizations. At the heart of my work with Pearlside is a commitment to developing transformative leadership programs tailored for every stage of the journey—whether you’re part of a vibrant startup or an established enterprise.

As the former Chief of Staff to the CTO at Red Hat, I’ve honed the art of shaping organizations that thrive on open source and innovation. My passion for continuous improvement is also reflected in my books: “Changing Your Team From The Inside” (2018) and “I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge” (2020), which are full of insights for change agents in any field.

I’m also an avid speaker, sharing lessons on leadership, organization, and change, with a particular fondness for the world of software development. Discover more about my speaking engagements, or dive into a wealth of resources through my blog posts, episodes of Le Podcast on Emerging Leadership, and my newsletter, where I unpack the complexities of driving impact and nurturing satisfaction in professional teams.

01. Check out my books!

I am passionate about books. I am passionate about reading. I am passionate about learning. And in addition to all that, I love sharing what I learned. One of the ways to share the learnings is to write books. One book, Changing Your Team From The Inside, was published in 2018. The second one, I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge, was published in 2020.
