The West Island Cancer Wellness Centre was very fortunate to have won a contest for nonprofit organizations and was 'gifted' with Mirella De Civita's expertise. Our organization through 'The Alignment Project' not only gained a tremendous amount of knowledge, but her guidance and support has strengthened our charity. It is clear that PapillonMDC's expertise has helped to further solidify the team and strengthened our organizations goals and objectives. I would highly recommend Papillion MDC.
I had the pleasure to work with Mirella on a Leadership Initiative that our company launched over two years ago. It is rare to find an individual that can “deliver the goods” in precisely the way that she outlined from the very beginning of the process. She was able to keep our team focused on the big picture with a slow but steady approach. Most importantly, Mirella provided us with tools to continue building upon our initial success without her involvement.
I have met Mirella twice, both through Skype meeting, as part of an assessment process. While apprehensive at first, within minutes after our first meeting, Mirella immediately put me at ease, instilled trust and respect, and I found myself fully engaged throughout the interview process. I find Mirella very professional, and a true expert. Her delivery is always clear, flawless and impactful. I was particularly impressed with her coaching skills at the second session, where she did a full and accurate debrief of my strengths and weaknesses. Mirella offered great insights, learning and valuable practical advice, which I will always value as part of my continuous learning and development. Thank you, Mirella.
Mirella was a collaborator on several projects, including work funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Canadian Initiative for Improved Outcomes in Rheumatoid Arthritis. She helped formulate the methods for surveys and focus group discussions, as well as expertly moderating both focus groups and a very important Café Scientifique funded by the CIHR. In my grant applications, she has provided important input to ensure sound design in qualitative research methods, and creativity in knowledge transfer. Mirella was a critical player in the success of our implementation of some initiatives to improve service delivery in rheumatology at the McGill University Health Centre. Moreover, she is an excellent writer, both as primary author and co-author of scientific abstracts and publications.
Lorsque j’ai été nommé à un poste exécutif siégeant au comité de direction, j’ai eu la chance d’avoir Mirella pour aider à faire la transition vers ce poste. Son accompagnement m’a permis de faire cette transition avec un très grand succès. Sa grande écoute, son approche et son expertise ont fait toute la différence dans l’atteinte de ce nouveau sommet pour moi.
My professional experiences with Mirella De Civita have been nothing less than outstanding. She provides such valuable insights and places a strong emphasis on building partnerships that last a lifetime. Her extensive academic background, coupled with her strong professional experiences, have proven very valuable in my interventions with Mirella. She is such a pleasure to partner with!
Integrity could be Dr. De Civita’s middle name, while Creative and Productive could be her first and last names, respectively. You will get more than you expect from her...
Mirella and Papillon MDC Inc. were instrumental in helping my executive team to bring our strategy to life, by aligning us on a charter of behavior and better understanding and working across each other’s communications styles. Her in-depth analysis of each executive’s profile combined with a robust leadership development toolkit, and constructive facilitation, allowed us to reach our full potential. And we had fun doing it!
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Mirella for almost 10 years as both a personal executive coach and as a human resource, leadership and talent management consultant. Her professionalism, insight, and integrity is unmatched by anyone that I have come across in the almost four decades of my business career. She also has the strength of character to speak truth to power and to challenge strongly held or entrenched views. Mirella was instrumental in helping us identify the right executive talent during the hiring process and identify the opportunities for coaching and support that maximized the possibility of the successful integration of new management talent into our organization. She was an invaluable resource for me personally, helping to provide valuable insights into human behavior and organizational dynamics. I know that I would not have been as successful as I have been without her encouragement and advice. I would recommend Mirella and Papillon without reservation to anyone looking for someone to help them build a successful, thriving organization by developing their most important resource, their people.
5 minutes after our first meeting, I already knew that Mirella was the type that would make significant differences in people's life. My instant judgment has been proven quite accurate over the last several years. She is not only an outstanding coach with extensive knowledge and solid expertise, but also one of the most decent individuals who genuinely care for people in life. She holds the highest ethical and professional standards in the quality service she provides. Her drive to bring the best in people, her integrity and strong values and her charming personality makes her a real gem in the coaching world. I thoroughly enjoy my professional interaction with her and greatly appreciate the value she has brought to Pratt & Whitney Canada.
Having known Mirella for 6 years, having seen her coach Executives and having been coached professionally by her, I knew what to expect when I embarked on the “Purposeful Career Coaching” journey: an intuitive yet professionally trained coach with a Psychology background, able to understand people like no others, relentless in ensuring value and result with her coaching mandate, challenging clients to surpass themselves, not letting them ‘ride the wave’ … and doing all this while connecting at the core with the individuals.
I saw, once again, that Mirella stands on a league of her own – most professional, adaptable coach with powerful insights and ability to bring the client through a journey of her own to reach the desired destination (which will vary greatly from one person to the next). Her approach, her ability to listen to what is said – and what is left unsaid -, her amazing ability to ask just the right question at the right time so clients can draw their own conclusions, all make her an unmatched coach.
Mirella has been instrumental for me in my own personal journey leading to the foundation of my company. By her accurate insights and knowledge of people, she has helped provide greater clarity for myself and helped me move forward with my vision. Mirella has been a true partner and a side-by-side, unparalleled, invaluable coach.
Having been responsible in the past for coaching mandates worldwide, I can easily evaluate coaches; there’s no doubt in my mind that Mirella scores at the very top. I don’t hesitate for a second to recommend her for any of her services and am confident in her ability to make a true difference. Thank you Mirella!
A while ago, I worked with Mirella as part of a top-tier leadership development initiative. As the HR executive for the project internally, I found Mirella to be the consummate professional – client-focused, business oriented and quickly grasping and understanding the individuals in the executive team as well as the team dynamic. Feedback from the executive team was very positive and pointed to her ability to give them feedback while being able to challenge them and bring them out of their comfort zone for further potential development. Mirella was also recognized for her excellent ability to facilitate the executive team and provide insights directed at improving team effectiveness.
