Hi there, I’m Alexis.

Co-Founder of Pearlside, Executive and Leadership Coach, ex-Chief of Staff to Executives, Start-up Advisor, Author, Keynote Speaker

Welcome! I’m Alexis Monville, Co-Founder of Pearlside, a consultancy at the forefront of fostering sustainable and high-impact teams and organizations. My mission at Pearlside is deeply rooted in the philosophy of Emerging Leadership—a dynamic approach designed to cultivate leadership qualities naturally within every level of an organization. This approach is tailored for individuals and teams at any stage of their growth journey, from energetic startups to well-established enterprises.

With a rich background as the former Chief of Staff to the CTO at Red Hat, I’ve mastered the intricacies of nurturing environments that excel in open-source innovation and collaborative success. My dedication to continuous improvement and organizational transformation is captured in my publications: “Changing Your Team From The Inside” (2018) and “I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge” (2020). These books are crafted to empower change agents across all disciplines with actionable insights and strategies.

Beyond writing, I’m an enthusiastic speaker, engaging audiences on topics of leadership, organizational culture, and the transformative power of embracing change, particularly within the realm of software development. I invite you to explore my journey through speaking engagements, delve into thought-provoking insights on my blog, listen to enlightening discussions on Le Podcast on Emerging Leadership, and subscribe to my newsletter for a deeper dive into the nuances of fostering impactful leadership and achieving team satisfaction.

Join me in this exploration of leadership and organizational excellence, where we challenge the status quo, embrace innovation, and build the foundations for enduring success.

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.
