I met Mirella during an assessment process. She is clearly an expert. Beyond her obvious technical capabilities, she is a pleasure to work with and is skilled in providing feedback and guidance that balances the theory with the practical – all wrapped up in a style that makes it a pleasure to receive.
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.
Our organization has come to depend heavily on the Papillon MDC team for executive selection, leadership coaching and team development. The high integrity of services, the humane and professional approach to support, and the keen understanding of our business challenges have delivered significant results as we invest in our people to lead and manage through ambitious growth of our company.
I met Mirella De Civita as part of an interview process with an international loyalty company. From the moment I received her introductory email outlining the prework that would fuel her assessment, I knew that I was working with a true expert. I was immediately energized to work with her.
Her process is unequalled in its thoroughness, combining an array of testing techniques with a thought-provoking Skype interview. Mirella’s tenacity to understand my rational and intuitive leadership skill sets was masterful. By the end of the interview process, I felt completely heard. But more importantly, I felt completely understood. I was confident that Mirella had the clarity she needed to determine if I was the fit for the job.
But what really surprised me was that I also felt that she was making sure that this company was the right fit for me as well. Ultimately, I did not get the job but I felt that this was the right decision for everyone involved. Mirella has continued to work with me to help me better understand what makes me tick and how to best market my personal brand.
Mirella is a shining example of a professional that has found her calling. Her passion to find the right person, for the right job, in the right company is #1 in her field. On a personal level, she has helped me to grow as a leader. I would highly recommend her unique expertise
It was my honor to meet Mirella when I underwent an individual psychometric assessment followed by a debrief with our CEO as a part of a standard induction process for incoming senior executives. The process was illuminating and highly productive in improving me as a leader and in fine tuning our executive team’s interaction. For our global company I found the virtual approach leveraging online testing and video teleconferencing to be an ideal answer to scheduling and time zone complexities while maintaining high quality interactions.
It should be noted that Mirella has an uncanny capacity to understand us and dissect from our essence what is and what is not working. Likewise, she is highly skillful and creative in suggesting approaches for improvement. I found it a truly unique approach vs the typical, popular teaming and coaching methods I’ve experience in past positions. It is always a pleasure to meet and work with someone like Mirella who is truly exceptional at what they do. For me it was has been a memorable experience which continues to yield benefits.
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.
Mirella is a rare talent. She combines business insight and corporate experience with a deep understanding of what it takes for leaders and teams to be successful, and then relentlessly supports them in the journey to get there.
Team development is as important as personal development in the success of a business. Mirella was instrumental in helping me and members of my team learn about ourselves and how best to work with different styles of leadership. She is insightful and deeply cares about human beings.
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!
Papillon MDC is unmatched when it comes to developing best-in-class programs. Mirella and her team’s professionalism, combined with their wealth of experience, knowledge, insight and attention to detail have led to the development of a high quality mentoring program in our organization. In addition to developing programs that fit our culture, the professional coaching services are clearly making a difference and helping us develop our team and improve our bench strength. If you’re looking for results and want to improve the development journey for your team, I would highly recommend Papillon MDC.
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.
