“I've had the benefit of working with Melanie for years now. And one of her qualities that has repeatedly struck me over that time is how versatile her partnership and advice are. We've tackled everything from marketing to business strategy to dealing with tactical operational issues to unpacking well the life that happens around all of that. She's always helpful and supportive and her counsel insightful.”

"I initially reached out to Melanie, as Vice President of Engineering . I had been struggling transitioning into a larger leadership role and a slightly larger organization. And really struggling to get out of my more individual contributor software engineer mindset into a role where I was thinking more structurally, strategically, organizationally. And really having a hard time finding that alignment across a large organization, and leading, what I saw as important strategic initiatives to completion or even just to make progress. And she really helped me learn how to think about thinking strategically."

“In her work, Parish brilliantly applies the principles of DevOps — culture, communication, autonomy, feedback, and experimentation — to leadership fundamentals. You will find the tactical steps you need to embrace a growth mindset in your daily work (and life) as a leader in tech. You’ll find yourself reflecting on your leadership style, reevaluating your team’s mission and vision, and enabling everyone in your organization to iteratively improve. Whether you currently manage a team or have your eye on the C-suite, this is the first step in actualizing your leadership potential.”
