The authors

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 builds 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 Conversion Copywriter and a Software Engineering Leadership Coach.

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

In organizations from medical devices and mobile media to wide area networking and enterprise open source, I’ve experienced how developing yourself as a next generation leader in software engineering can be filled with ambiguity. You’re not sure which actions are the right actions, and you don’t want to fail.

My solution is simple, Fear + Action = Courage.

As a leadership coach, I ask questions that draw out your vision and strengths. From your new vantage point you will see the actions you need to take, giving you courage to propel yourself to the next level of your career.

As a recent client put it, “Working with Michael was like being hit by a tsunami of insight.”

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

I am a Software Engineer and I am in Charge is a practical approach to increasing your impact and satisfaction at work.
