Lucie Bourgeois, President of Umalia (Former Group Director, Human Resources, IMS Health)

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

Dr. Patricia Dobkin, Associate Professor, Department of Medicine, McGill University, Montreal, Canada

I have known Dr. Mirella De Civita for over 15 years. She completed a 3 year post-doctoral fellowship at McGill University back in 2005 under my mentorship. She was awarded a CIHR fellowship to study children suffering from arthritis with a multidisciplinary team. Dr. De Civita was creative, diligent, and effective. We published many journal articles together in the area of pediatric medicine, quality of life in chronic disease populations, and health outcomes in adults living with a chronic health condition. 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. She is a joy to work with and will remain my colleague and friend for many years to

Dès ma première rencontre avec Mirella, j’ai su qu’elle pourrait m’aider dans ma démarche de coaching. Elle a le don de rendre les gens à l’aise et parvient de façon subtile à déceler leurs lacunes et les aider à les corriger. Son expérience et sa grande connaissance du marché du travail lui permettent de s’adapter à toutes situations et de se mettre dans la peau des gens afin de les aider à trouver leurs propres solutions. Merci Mirella, tu m’as beaucoup aidé à devenir un meilleur

Sasha Bernatsky, MD PhD Associate Professor, Division of Clinical Epidemiology

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

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 a travaillé avec nous pour l’élaboration et l’implantation stratégique d’un module de préparation et d’orientation de carrières pour notre population étudiante au MBA. Comprendre nos besoins spécifiques, saisir les enjeux, élaborer un module innovateur, présenter étaient des défis de taille que Mirella a su composer avec succès. Une approche très professionnelle et humaine, une excellente capacité d’écoute tout en étant d’une grande adaptabilité sont des attributs qui caractérisent Mirella. Je vous la réfère sans

The Adecco Group

“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!”

Head of People and Culture, Retail Industry

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!

Human Resources Manager, Finance & Tech

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.

Première directrice, Développement organisationnel mondial, Finance

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.

Engineering Executive, Aerospace

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.

Executive Director, Talent Management, People & Culture

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.

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.

PB, VP Canada – Transervice

Live Learning mini-courses with Stefano Di Lollo & the Papillon MDC Team are one of the best formats we have found. Great content, well-packaged, and professionally presented. Pandemic challenges limiting in-person learning and busy agendas make Papillon MDC’s videoconferencing formula a true winner. Important topics broken down into small sessions over different days keep you focused and enables you to accomplish other duties on the same day.

The Alignment Project is a wonderful process and facilitation. Really assisted in setting the course with responsibilities and roles

The program (The Alignment Prpoject) was well organized and focused on ensuring that the team collaboration and understanding of each other was paramount. Our facilitator was extremely good at challenging our assumptions and holding up a mirror, when necessary.

Excellent course! Should be suggested as part of the welcoming package for new leaders. Mirella is so good on transferring the knowledge that she has, and at answering the questions. Flow of the program was summarized perfectly in 2 days.

One of the best soft skills course I had. Mirella has much knowledge of the subject and is a perfect teacher. She showed enough experience to answer the questions. I enjoyed to 2 day training and I will suggest others to take it. I will definitely use this course in life.

Really well-done course. Mirella was awesome; very soft-spoken and polity. It was a lot of fun to learn from her and shave my thoughts.

It was eye opening! Very engaging and impactful. I definitely recommend to all managers/leaders who are willing to invest on their talent development and employees for future leaders. The material was very well prepared, excellent flow which impact individuals to think and reflect on themselves.

I felt privileged to have had such a qualified and experienced facilitator. Mirella gave us a lot of insights into behavioral science as well as many practical examples. I will definitely take away a lot from this course! Thank you!

Excellent Program! Best one I took at my workplace. Mirella was so generous in sharing her expertise and experience and so knowledgeable. I liked the balance between theory, practice exercises, and explanations from the facilitator.

Great course! It helps develop my default mode network.

The process we learned about gave me a structured approach to the two, allowing me to be more confident and comfortable. It helped put into “real terms” a lot of feelings and ideas I had and make it more concrete for me. Mirella was a fantastic instructor and I would happily take another course in this area! She was extremely knowledgeable and obviously quite experienced! She created an open and friendly atmosphere and made the material interesting and encouraged constant discussion.

Very interesting program. Definitely opened my eyes on coaching mindset and realized I have been doing mentoring/teaching. Content is just right, not overwhelming. Mirella is very enthusiastic in her presentation of the course. Very insightful. Had an overall good experience working and practicing during the program. Very well paced. Will take time for me to get into practice the method, but I feel I have all the tools I need.
