I've been a coach for 20 years and I have had thousands of conversations with leaders just like you. You may have been promoted after being a top performer or you may have been leading for some time. You probably feel like you aren't confident in your leadership path and hope people don't know you don't know what you are doing as a leader.
I have helped many clients . I have created this book to help you step by step solve the loneliness and to help you create your own path to confident and fulfilling leadership. I want you to have the tools and the path to improve the way you feel about yourself and the way you lead.

”The Experimental Leader provides an entirely new way of approaching leadership—one that offers a methodical and measurable way to achieve real progress in creating a culture of innovation. By applying a scientific, experimental, and modern mindset to leadership, Melanie Parish not only shows leaders how to shed old, unhelpful habits, but also gives them the tools to strive for–and achieve—better outcomes."


Senior Applied Resilience Engineer, Netflix

”For technology companies, building tools to pilot product features and optimize customer experience with A/B testing and measurement of real-world interactions is not new. And yet, applying these same techniques to improving how our organizations perform their work is surprisingly nascent.
Parish delves deeply to illustrate what it looks like when leaders, at all levels, apply the time-tested techniques of inquiry, evaluation, and constant refinement, to a new frame: the daily practice of our work, how groups engage with each other, and ultimately how value is delivered. It works for apps beloved by billions, and it can work just as effectively for your teams and your business... and the Experimental Leader shows you how."

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.”
