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.
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.
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.
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.
J’ai eu le privilège de transiger avec Madame De Civita sur différents types de mandats et chaque occasion m’a permis d’apprécier ses compétences professionnelles et personnelles. Mirella possède un réel talent à intéragir avec les gens, ce qui rend les échanges à la fois faciles et productifs. Sa capacité à cerner les besoins de ses clients, sa profondeur d’analyse, ses aptitudes à synthétiser l’information et son habileté à communiquer tous les types de messages font de Mirella, à mon avis, un partenaire d’affaires précieux.
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.
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
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.
Working with Mirella was a life changing experience. I would recommend her to any executive who feel stuck and not afraid to challenge some of his/her deeply rooted beliefs.
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.
I was very fortunate to meet Mirella through an interview process almost 10 years ago and was immediately taken by her sense of goodness, her impeccable professionalism, and her amazing insight. What sets her apart from the pack is her continued interest in your wellbeing and her genuine concern for your ongoing success. She has ended up playing an integral role in my professional career and has become an important guiding force for me. She is truly someone that makes a positive impact on everything that she does.
