Senior VP Customer Service – technology firm

I have had the great pleasure of working with Mirella who has been my coach for the last 2 years. In my long career, I was exposed to various firms/coaches; none of them of the caliber of Mirella and her team. The approach is professional, direct, with a clear framework. Mirella really coaches… not just principles: she provides direction, she doesn’t sugar coat … I have grown as a leader and as an individual. Best experience of my


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.

Sa grande écoute, son approche et son expertise ont fait toute la différence dans l’atteinte de ce nouveau sommet pour

Debbie Magwood, M.Ed., OPQ Founder, Executive Director, West Island Cancer Wellness Centre

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.

The program is excellent. It reoriented my approach for interactions, especially with team members. I have been utilizing the ‘navigational’ approach for several months now and it has been an exhilarating journey. It is such a great approach because both participants benefit in the long run.

Senior Leader

The Alignment Project Program was very helpful in identifying key issues and constructive solutions. Particularly effective in creating a shift in communication styles and understanding. Mirella did a superb job herding the cats and adding insights. Wonderful facilitation and having all engaged. The wordsmithing of the leadership team charter was very well done.

Donne de bons outils avec des exemples concrets et pertinents. Mirella est une excellente formatrice. Elle donne des enseignements très claires, avec une bonne fluidité et une bonne interaction avec les participants.

Excellent programme! J’ai beaucoup apprécié les simulations et les exercices. Mirella nous a présenté plusieurs mises en situation. Un bon outil de travail, réaliste à appliquer dans un milieu de travail. Permet de réfléchir au type de gestionnaire que tu es. J’ai beaucoup aimé ma formation.

Excellent programme. Méthode favorisant l’ouverture et la responsabilisation des employés. Mirella est une excellente formatrice. Elle est très connaissante du sujet.

J’ai bien apprécié le programme. Il est agréable de comprendre les fondements et fonctionnements du cerveau. Mirella connaît très bien sa matière. Très bon rythme, la théorie et la pratique sont bien équilibrées. Excellent connaissance, très bien verbalisée!

Excellent plongeon dans l’univers du coaching. Approche simple, facile à retenir et à utiliser. Bravo! Enfin des fondements établis avant de livrer la technique. J’en aurais pris davantage. Mirella est très accueillante et une excellente formatrice!

Excellent programme! Beaucoup d’interactions. Mirella est dynamique et expressive. Ce programme permet de changer la manière de voir les choses et te sort de ta zone de confiance de façon positive.

The Alignment Project is an excellent program. It is good to understand other peoples’ communication styles. The approach is informative and good to get an unbiaised point of view with a process for moving forward. I appreciated the step-by-step process of understanding the executive role and how my style plays into either progressing or hindering goals.

Excellent program! Great interactions, and guided learnings by Mirella.

The course is really practical, and I feel we can apply it immediately.

The program made me realize that I can control the volume of conversations. I will certainly use the E-A-S-T model in both my personal and professional life. This training should be mandatory for all managers!

The content is rich, backed up by scientific research. The flow is great and the opportunity to practice is where it sticks. Mirella is a true expert and a consummate professional. She makes everyone very comfortable to learn and make mistakes and is quick on her feet when people have challenging situations or examples to share.

I liked the balance between theory and workshop. Some courses put too much emphasis on workshops and case studies and forget the theory associated with the topic we are studying. This course had the right balance.

Very good program – theory is balanced with practice. Very good facilitator. Practical part is very helpful.

Excellent material with great participation and an exceptional facilitator! Mirella is thoughtful and caring and provides insightful feedback that facilitates learning. Navigational Conversations is an outstanding course as it focuses on having a coaching conversation – something I have never heard until now (after 20 years).

This course provides a management toolbox that everyone should have at their disposal. Mirella was an absolute please to have as a facilitator; her depth of knowledge and positive outlook resulted in an engaging experience. Great balance of theory and practice. Role playing was impactful and well executed.

Great program! Every manager or manager to be should attend this training! Mirella is an amazing person, great facilitator; engaging and encouraging all participation. There is a great balance between theory and practice. Great handouts; great link with real life situations.

Program was very well delivered with a dynamic approach. Very inspiring!

I truly enjoyed the specific examples for this program! It is obvious that Mirella has massive experience! Excellent program. The length of the course and pace was perfect. Much appreciated role playing.
