The Alignment Project Program was very helpful in identifying key issues and constructive solutions. Particularly effective in creating a shift in communication styles and understanding. Mirella did a superb job herding the cats and adding insights. Wonderful facilitation and having all engaged. Wordsmithing of leadership team charter very well
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.
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.
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!
“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!”
“Merci encore pour ton temps, Stefano! J’ai vraiment apprécié le cours Navigational Conversations ainsi que la façon qu’il est présenté. Cela permet de nous garder concentré, de faire parler le contenu et donc le matériel est assimilé beaucoup plus facilement. C’est définitivement un des meilleurs cours que j’ai suivi chez Pratt jusqu’à maintenant.”
“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!”
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. From a business perspective, her extensive knowledge, expertise and experience with executives and their teams led to changes in mindset, how people show up for conversations, and improved individual and team performances. 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.
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.
