We Actualize and Develop Potential

When you partner with us, you are making a commitment to develop and sustain your talent. We work mindfully with steady determination and commitment to best practices in promoting sustainable transformations. Our objectivity and insight form a base on which your leaders can own their potential and achieve success. We do this by upholding our purpose and what we believe:

True success is the realization of potential.

We define integrity by the following key values:

  • Insight: We take pride in our ability to develop for ourselves and for our clients a truthful understanding of where they are, where they want to be and how they’re going to get there.
  • Honesty: We practice and rely on trust, transparency and sincerity, in order to cultivate truly effective partnerships with our clients.
  • Solidarity: Alongside a leader, his or her manager, and the organization as a whole, we work as a team to nourish a harmony of perspectives and find strength in unity and common goals.
  • Creativity: We show courage in forming a relationship with the unknown by listening with fierce attention to what is not being said when developing fresh ideas and new ways of doing things to achieve successTM.
  • Courage: We are mindful of the choices we make in serving our clients. We will walk away from mandates that do not respond to what we do best. We will push for purposeful conversations on matters that are impeding optimal functioning for the individual leader, team, and organization as a whole. And, we will work ourselves out of a job, thereby empowering organizations.

To awaken the potential of leaders to be the best at what they do, resulting in substantial and sustainable changes in the leadership ethos for the organization.

We define our success by how well we help you grow and succeed today as well as tomorrow. We feel that being great coaches as well as insightful psychologists requires a coming together of mindfulness and effectiveness. When we are mindful of how we deliver our services, we are being effective. By being effective, we keep a fierce attention on what is occurring in the moment. We are therefore mindful of our effectiveness. Papillon MDC Inc. is based on this principle.

Our clients will reach out to us when they have a need to identify and understand the strengths of their leaders, develop and empower their talent, sustain ongoing development initiatives or even help their leaders through a transition. They count on us to be:

  • Objective while remaining sensitive to their issue
  • Resourceful while empowering them to find their own solutions
  • Thought-provoking while inspiring them to take action

Committed to tap into the full potential of collective leadership.

Papillon MDC Inc. believes in providing added value to our clients through the work of our partners.

When a client has an objective that is not being met, operational effectiveness is always attributed to either people or process…and most commonly, a combination of both. Addressing one without being mindful of the other is often disastrous…or, best case, a waste of time and money.

Our partnership is the ideal answer: Papillon MDC takes care of the “people” part of this complex equation by helping leaders transform how they see themselves in their roles for greater impact while JTX Inc. focuses on the “process” part to ensure effective changes in tools, strategies, and methods. The two companies therefore share a “passion” for YOU—The center of where change resides.

JTX Inc. is Papillon MDC Inc’s partner of choice as its senior business advisors bring a wealth of strategic and operational experience to optimize your business outcomes.
