Mirella is able to sift through a rich amount of psychometric data and interview material to quickly provide insights that allow new employees become effective (and happy) in their new work environments. She performs this feat with a light touch and in a caring way. A rare gem of a person. Thank you Mirella.
Dr. Mirella De Civita’s deep knowledge of knowledge translation and qualitative research methods were critical in the publication of our work: The first was an application of diffusion of innovations theory to diabetes translation research, highlighting the key elements to achieve sustainable implementation of evidence- based diabetes management programs (DeCivita and Dasgupta, Journal of Public Health). The second was a qualitative examination of physical activity- related barriers and facilitators experienced by adults with type 2 diabetes who had participated in a supervised exercise program (Casey, DeCivita, and Dasgupta, Diabetic Medicine). Her collaborative spirit and astute knowledge were critical to our research.
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.
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.
I have worked with Mirella directly as well as having her support members of my team. I always found her input to be insightful, engaging and action oriented.
Through Mirella’s guidance, I was able to step back from the everyday fast pace schedule and reflect on my decisions, my way to deal with people and grow to be a more effective communicator and leader. I always look forward to our sessions (which I have missed since the ending of my coaching with her). Thank you !!!
I retained Mirella on a number of mandates and I offer an unconditional positive testimony. Mirella has the usual essential prerequisites of a professional expert at her level: impeccable education, schooling and a capacity to work in English and French. Time and time again, Mirella demonstrated deep humanity and profound values of which integrity and trust were the ones I appreciated the most. Further, she is always there for her client and literally only a phone call away. Mirella possesses amazing knowledge, has an extraordinary gift for listening to what is said and to silence; compounded by a keen eye for body language. Mirella acted as an effective and patient catalyst in helping me move on an exponential development curve: she was not only instrumental in me improving my executive results but also in me blossoming into a better human being. I recommend Mirella to executives who are committed to their personal developments and who are willing to engage on a journey of self development.
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!
Mirella is truly outstanding at what she does, she has a way of instilling confidence while providing an honest and professional guidance at a time when it is needed most !!
J’avais le choix dans le cadre de ma transition de carrière de travailler avec qui je voulais. Je connaissais Mirella puisque j’étais déjà une cliente corporative. L’approche unique de Mirella en matière de transition de carrière, sa profondeur comme coach et la qualité de ses interventions m’ont permis d’abord de faire le tri de mes acquis et ce sur quoi j’avais le goût de canaliser mes énergies, de travailler sur le caractère unique de mon offre et de redéfinir mon branding. Papillon MDC Inc. est réellement un moteur de réflexion et de transformation personnelle.
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!
