Alexis Monville

Hi, I’m Alexis, a member of the Engineering Leadership Team at Enterprise Open Source Software company Red Hat.

For more than 20 years, I have used and built software in diverse sectors such as the automotive industry, a dot-com startup, IT consulting, public sector, software development, and my management and organization consulting and coaching firm.

From 2011 until Red Hat acquired eNovance in 2014, I nurtured and grew the eNovance agile organization from a few individuals to more than a hundred people. During this time, I maintained the team’s focus on delivering private cloud services with OpenStack while building an open and people-centric culture.

I regularly speak about management and agile transformation and participate in industry events such as the Open Infrastructure Summit, Open World Forum, and Agile Lean Europe.

I love coaching and mentoring software engineers. It is the foundation to build high impact sustainable organizations.

I am the author of Changing Your Team From The Inside, a book published in 2018. With the second book, I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge, Michael and I want to help increase your impact and satisfaction at work.

Hi, I’m Michael, a Leadership Coach and Digital Marketer.

For more than 15 years I’ve worked shoulder-to-shoulder with software engineers from around the globe.

I’ve seen first hand how developing your professional leadership in software engineering is definitely not the same thing as developing your technical leadership.

Technical leadership requires you to continuously “sharpen the saw” but professional leadership requires you to put down your saw and help other people in the toolshed.

It’s a mindset shift.

Moving from being the expert in a situation to using your expertise to inspire, engage, and grow the people around you.

Working with Alexis, and combining my coaching and digital marketing skills, I’ve now been able to package this professional development experience into a book.

I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge is one way you can start to shift your mindset and increase your impact and satisfaction at work.
