R.D., PPCC Program, Concordia University

A compassionate approach, a genuine interest in her mentees and an expert in her field are the first words that come to mind in describing Mirella. Choosing Mirella as a mentor made all the difference for me. I first began my search for a mentor by looking for specific credentials, all of which Mirella possesses. Then, as time progressed, Mirella offered much more than I had anticipated. In the many months we worked together, not only did I rely on her extensive knowledge to learn new theory, practices and skills, but she went above and beyond in the way she provided mentorship; she encouraged me to explore, try out new ways, and to marry learning to my individual style.  Her approach increased confidence in my ability especially when the topics were more challenging because she helped me get past doubt and work through solutions instead. This all made the learning experience more pleasurable and successful in the end. In summary, not only did I accomplish my academic goals but I grew as well, and this learning will stay with me forever. Thank you Mirella, your mentorship was very

A.M.A., Business Development Manager, Pratt & Whitney Canada

In two words: My inspiration! I had the privilege to work with Mirella De Civita as my mentor for my Coaching degree at Concordia University. My mentoring experience with Mirella was extremely useful during my coaching practice. She was my guide during all this process and she always provided great insights that pushed me to the next level. She has a very unique way of providing feedback and creating an atmosphere of trust and connection. I greatly benefited from her examples and observations that helped me with my coaching practice. Looking forward to working with her again.  “Always surround yourself with people who challenge you and push you to be your best self”

A.S., PPCC Coach, Concordia University

Working with Mirella has been a rewarding experience.  Her professionalism, dedication, patience and inspiration have transformed my coaching skills. As a mentee I learned a lot from Mirella, and I highly recommend her mentorship

V.C., PPCC & ICF Certified Life Coach & Yoga Mentor

Mirella is an amazing human being and I could not have dreamt of a better mentor coach. While mentoring me as an aspiring coach, she took into account that I was also going through a transition period in my life and that there were sometimes other things coming in between the coaching. Bringing me back to the essence of what it is to be a coach, trusting me and establishing a strong relationship are all elements that allowed me to grow as a coach but also as a person. I would not have been where I am now, would it not have been for her constant constructive feedback, her encouragements and powerful questions at the right times. Thank

G.N., ICF Certified Coach

I met Mirella when coaching was just an abstract concept for me and she is the one that awoke the coaching passion in me. She has been a constant presence in my coaching journey that started almost 5 years ago, so when the time came, there was nobody else I would chose as a mentor. Her professionalism, her business insight, her easiness to connect with people is what makes dealing with her such a success. As a mentor, she has always been there for me when I was doubting myself as a coach as well as when I was celebrating my successes. She is a great observer, an amazing listener, she asks powerful thought-provoking questions and helps her mentees grow tremendously and find their own style all in accordance with the ICF competencies requirements. I highly recommend Mirella and her mentoring

E.B., Aerospace, PPCC & ICF Certified Coach

I worked with Mirella as my mentor coach and she provided me with a structured coaching program. Her feedback was always very detailed and specific, well balanced between the positive and competencies that required more work. She worked through the 11 competencies ensuring I was mastering each one and practicing until they were well integrated. Mirella is very inspirational, she took my success to heart and I felt I deserved her letter of recommendation at the end of the Program, I felt ready. I would strongly recommend Mirella as a mentor coach to anyone who is working towards the journey of professional coaching. She made all the difference in my journey to

L.B., Management Practice, ICF Certified Coach

I have had the pleasure of working with Mirella for a number of years, so when an opportunity arose for me to select a mentor for my ICF ACC credentialing renewal, my first choice was Mirella. Her approach to coaching is both focused and intuitive, listening beyond the words and asking thought provoking questions. Her mentoring style is in the same vane: deep listening, an emphasis on the ICF Core Competencies and how they relate to various coaching scenarios, and above all, a dedication to letting the mentee find his/her coaching voice within these competencies. The mentee is encouraged to experiment with and trust, his/her coaching instincts. I highly recommend Mirella both as a coach and as a coaching

K.M., Consulting, ICF Certified Coach

Mirella provided an exceptional mentor coaching experience. With her support and guidance I was able to see the specific areas where I could develop as a coach but also see what initiated the challenges I was experiencing in those areas. Mirella applied the 11 competencies within our coaching sessions, which allowed me to experience the flow from the receiving end and also be an observer to the process as well. I highly recommend Papillon MDC Inc’s mentoring program if you are interested in improving your coaching

J.B., Personal Life Coach, PPCC – Concordia University

I had the great pleasure of working with Dr. De Civita as my mentor coach while I was completing the Professional and Personal Coach Certification program at Concordia University. The ICF’s 11 core competencies were at the heart of our many discussions, which in turn allowed me to not only better understand these competencies but to integrate them in my coaching with clients and in my everyday life. I greatly appreciated Dr. De Civita’s support during and in-between our mentoring sessions as well as her expert knowledge of all things coaching, her genuine kindness, her constructive feedback and her unconditional positive presence. All my expectations were met and exceeded by the quality of this mentoring

DR, Director of IT

The coaching with Valerie Legge was an enlightening experience. I quickly started looking forward to our scheduled meetings and the value they would bring. Valerie is a wonderful coach and I especially liked that everything she speaks about is presented in a way that related to me personally. Valerie gave me the tools to look at and approach situations in different ways and choose the option best suited it. Valerie builds on existing strengths resulting in positive and enjoyable coaching sessions that I always left encouraged to implement what I had learned. Valery has initiated a personal growth from which I personally, my company and my team have benefited greatly.

N.F., Executive Leader

Mirella has perfected the art of executive coaching by combining her deep knowledge of mental schema, her understanding of business operations and structures, and her ability to quickly grasp her coachees’ abilities, capabilities and environment.

Throughout my coaching journey with her, she challenged me tremendously and encouraged me to experiment new ways in showing up and in deploying my leadership fully and authentically. This was always done with respect, kindness, and support.

T.S., VP, Customer Programs, Aerospace

My team engaged Mirella through Zoom Webinar during lockdown. Mirella’s engagement with the team was critical to the success of our overall event and in this challenging context. She engaged us with insights, spurring both introspection and conversation amongst my leaders. In our case the theme which ran across was an installing growth mindset within ourselves, our peers, and teams. It was exactly the time of “nutrients” we needed in the moment and driving our path forward. Top scores from my team and lives on!

Michel Labbé | Transmission Design | Pratt & Whitney Canada

“C’était un plaisir d’assister et de participer à ton cours, Navigational Conversations.  Stefano, j’’aurais bien aimé te voir gesticuler d’un peu plus près en personne par exemple 😊.  La communication, les échanges et les interactions étaient excellents dans le groupe (pendant la version en ligne de ce programme).  Stefano, j’ai bien aimé ton authenticité et ta spontanéité.  Les techniques apprises (le coaching de conversations, l’art de poser des questions ouvertes et les techniques de rétroaction) étaient exposées de façon simple et facile à mettre en pratique.  Ces techniques peuvent être utiles à tous autant dans notre vie personnelle, familiale et au travail (avec des coéquipier ou des employés sous notre direction).  De la rétroaction donnée de la bonne façon peut faire toute la différence entre aider une personne à prendre conscience de son potentiel d’amélioration et l’inciter à progresser vs créer une grande frustration, des pensées négatives, des nuits de sommeil perdues et une certaine colère qui pourrait perdurer. Merci encore Stefano, et à une prochaine fois!”   

The Adecco Group

“The interactive webinar was great and the entire team loved the thought-provoking content. Stefano presents complex information with crystal clarity in such a unique way!”

Head of People and Culture, Retail Industry

We have had the absolute pleasure of having Mirella De Civita as a Keynote Speaker at our Leadership Forum in December 2020. Mirella is very engaging in her approach and truly inspiring with her words. Her passion for her work and her compassion for people is evidenced in all that she does. She is an “out of the box thinker” and encourages everyone to follow her along her journey and to step out of their comfort zone and gain a different perspective. All who participated in the Leadership Forum were truly impressed by Mirella and all that she had to share with us… it is always so amazing to learn and grow with Mirella!

Human Resources Manager, Finance & Tech

Dr. Mirella was professional and a true expert in the field. In this new virtual environment, we wanted to provide a space to support our employees and the wellness webinars did just that. The team was easy to work with and adapted to all our needs.

Première directrice, Développement organisationnel mondial, Finance

Dans le contexte de la pandémie où l’incertitude et l’ambiguïté ont été exacerbés, nous souhaitions offrir à nos gestionnaires des outils pour reconnaître et gérer les signes de stress, ainsi qu’à nos employés des moyens pour développer leur résilience. Dr. Mirella De Civita nous a guidés dans l’élaboration et la diffusion d’ateliers qui ont reçu un bel accueil et démontré que l’organisation se souciait du bien-être de son actif le plus précieux.

Engineering Executive, Aerospace

I was overwhelmed, year-end rush, yes 2020 THE year, and then was asked to add another item to the list… to lead a discussion panel on Leadership during the pandemic with the executive team… I said yes. I said yes because I was doing this with someone who knew what she was talking about, someone who had wisdom, profound knowledge and broad data to talk about this intelligently in an inspiring way. I knew that with her we would deliver something that could make a difference to someone. Through her feedback, supportive effort and effective brainstorming we had a game plan and we delivered! Could not have asked for a better partner on this! Mirella, thank you for being there. You made a difference.

Executive Director, Talent Management, People & Culture

We have been working with Papillon MDC for many years on a number of different initiatives. Dr. Mirella Di Civita is an exceptional psychologist, and executive coach who works with C-suite and other senior executive teams transform and work at an optimal level. One of our recent projects was at the onset of the pandemic, as everyone felt the constraints of suddenly being thrust into a remote work context. During a period when many felt destabilized and perhaps discouraged, leaders had a double-duty of managing and motivating teams. We asked Dr. Di Civita for help and she quickly developed a customized webinar series, in both French and English, to help managers lead effectively from a distance. Each session addressed a specific topic followed by a group discussion. Word spread quickly and participation grew as the series evolved. We are very grateful for the opportunity to work with Dr. Di Civita and for her professionalism, pragmatism and tremendous business acumen.

Maria Valerio, Former Vice President Quality and EH&S (retired) – Pratt & Whitney Canada

Mirella is a source of strength and knowledge for personal and career transformational changes. Over the years, she has partnered with me and my team for leadership development, which allowed us to build a high performing culture that has powered business optimization and growth.

She is an amazing business partner! She is surrounded by an amazing team of professionals that provide executive coaching and master a complete suite of development tools to address any business/ personal challenge.

PB, VP Canada – Transervice

Live Learning mini-courses with the Papillon MDC Team is one of the best formats we have found. Great content, well packaged and professionally presented. Pandemic challenges limiting in person learning and busy agendas, makes Papillon MDC’s videoconferencing formula a true winner. Important topics broken down in small sessions over different days keep you focused and enables you to accomplish other duties in the same day.

The Alignment Project is a wonderful process and facilitation. Really assisted in setting the course with responsibilities and roles

The program (The Alignment Prpoject) was well organized and focused on ensuring that the team collaboration and understanding of each other was paramount. Our facilitator was extremely good at challenging our assumptions and holding up a mirror, when necessary.

Excellent course! Should be suggested as part of the welcoming package for new leaders. Mirella is so good on transferring the knowledge that she has, and at answering the questions. Flow of the program was summarized perfectly in 2 days.

One of the best soft skills course I had. Mirella has much knowledge of the subject and is a perfect teacher. She showed enough experience to answer the questions. I enjoyed to 2 day training and I will suggest others to take it. I will definitely use this course in life.

Really well-done course. Mirella was awesome; very soft-spoken and polity. It was a lot of fun to learn from her and shave my thoughts.

It was eye opening! Very engaging and impactful. I definitely recommend to all managers/leaders who are willing to invest on their talent development and employees for future leaders. The material was very well prepared, excellent flow which impact individuals to think and reflect on themselves.

I felt privileged to have had such a qualified and experienced facilitator. Mirella gave us a lot of insights into behavioral science as well as many practical examples. I will definitely take away a lot from this course! Thank you!
