R.D., PPCC Program, Concordia University

A compassionate approach, a genuine interest in her mentees and an expert in her field are the first words that come to mind in describing Mirella. Choosing Mirella as a mentor made all the difference for me. I first began my search for a mentor by looking for specific credentials, all of which Mirella possesses. Then, as time progressed, Mirella offered much more than I had anticipated. In the many months we worked together, not only did I rely on her extensive knowledge to learn new theory, practices and skills, but she went above and beyond in the way she provided mentorship; she encouraged me to explore, try out new ways, and to marry learning to my individual style.  Her approach increased confidence in my ability especially when the topics were more challenging because she helped me get past doubt and work through solutions instead. This all made the learning experience more pleasurable and successful in the end. In summary, not only did I accomplish my academic goals but I grew as well, and this learning will stay with me forever. Thank you Mirella, your mentorship was very

A.M.A., Business Development Manager, Pratt & Whitney Canada

In two words: My inspiration! I had the privilege to work with Mirella De Civita as my mentor for my Coaching degree at Concordia University. My mentoring experience with Mirella was extremely useful during my coaching practice. She was my guide during all this process and she always provided great insights that pushed me to the next level. She has a very unique way of providing feedback and creating an atmosphere of trust and connection. I greatly benefited from her examples and observations that helped me with my coaching practice. Looking forward to working with her again.  “Always surround yourself with people who challenge you and push you to be your best self”

A.S., PPCC Coach, Concordia University

Working with Mirella has been a rewarding experience.  Her professionalism, dedication, patience and inspiration have transformed my coaching skills. As a mentee I learned a lot from Mirella, and I highly recommend her mentorship

V.C., PPCC & ICF Certified Life Coach & Yoga Mentor

Mirella is an amazing human being and I could not have dreamt of a better mentor coach. While mentoring me as an aspiring coach, she took into account that I was also going through a transition period in my life and that there were sometimes other things coming in between the coaching. Bringing me back to the essence of what it is to be a coach, trusting me and establishing a strong relationship are all elements that allowed me to grow as a coach but also as a person. I would not have been where I am now, would it not have been for her constant constructive feedback, her encouragements and powerful questions at the right times. Thank

G.N., ICF Certified Coach

I met Mirella when coaching was just an abstract concept for me and she is the one that awoke the coaching passion in me. She has been a constant presence in my coaching journey that started almost 5 years ago, so when the time came, there was nobody else I would chose as a mentor. Her professionalism, her business insight, her easiness to connect with people is what makes dealing with her such a success. As a mentor, she has always been there for me when I was doubting myself as a coach as well as when I was celebrating my successes. She is a great observer, an amazing listener, she asks powerful thought-provoking questions and helps her mentees grow tremendously and find their own style all in accordance with the ICF competencies requirements. I highly recommend Mirella and her mentoring

E.B., Aerospace, PPCC & ICF Certified Coach

I worked with Mirella as my mentor coach and she provided me with a structured coaching program. Her feedback was always very detailed and specific, well balanced between the positive and competencies that required more work. She worked through the 11 competencies ensuring I was mastering each one and practicing until they were well integrated. Mirella is very inspirational, she took my success to heart and I felt I deserved her letter of recommendation at the end of the Program, I felt ready. I would strongly recommend Mirella as a mentor coach to anyone who is working towards the journey of professional coaching. She made all the difference in my journey to

L.B., Management Practice, ICF Certified Coach

I have had the pleasure of working with Mirella for a number of years, so when an opportunity arose for me to select a mentor for my ICF ACC credentialing renewal, my first choice was Mirella. Her approach to coaching is both focused and intuitive, listening beyond the words and asking thought provoking questions. Her mentoring style is in the same vane: deep listening, an emphasis on the ICF Core Competencies and how they relate to various coaching scenarios, and above all, a dedication to letting the mentee find his/her coaching voice within these competencies. The mentee is encouraged to experiment with and trust, his/her coaching instincts. I highly recommend Mirella both as a coach and as a coaching

K.M., Consulting, ICF Certified Coach

Mirella provided an exceptional mentor coaching experience. With her support and guidance I was able to see the specific areas where I could develop as a coach but also see what initiated the challenges I was experiencing in those areas. Mirella applied the 11 competencies within our coaching sessions, which allowed me to experience the flow from the receiving end and also be an observer to the process as well. I highly recommend Papillon MDC Inc’s mentoring program if you are interested in improving your coaching

J.B., Personal Life Coach, PPCC – Concordia University

I had the great pleasure of working with Dr. De Civita as my mentor coach while I was completing the Professional and Personal Coach Certification program at Concordia University. The ICF’s 11 core competencies were at the heart of our many discussions, which in turn allowed me to not only better understand these competencies but to integrate them in my coaching with clients and in my everyday life. I greatly appreciated Dr. De Civita’s support during and in-between our mentoring sessions as well as her expert knowledge of all things coaching, her genuine kindness, her constructive feedback and her unconditional positive presence. All my expectations were met and exceeded by the quality of this mentoring

Executive, Aerospace Sector

Thank you Stefano for all your guidance over the past several months, especially during those challenging moments. I remain grateful and truly appreciate how you allowed me to become more reflective and self-aware.  I credit our work together as the spark that I needed for my professional growth while simultaneously strengthening my relationships with colleagues, peers, and direct reports. I also appreciate your creative flair. I’ve recently been able to advance my career to a new level, and I truly believe our work together made this milestone become a reality. I continue to think back to our work to this day and it continues to help me move forward. 

Lina Borrelli

I had the pleasure of attending a virtual session on Asking Questions and Coaching hosted by Stefano Di Lollo. It was awesome. Enlightening and great tips and tools provided. Definitely something I can apply in my day-to-day! Stefano is a dynamic speaker and really kept our attention. Highly recommend: great topic, great speaker and affordable. [Google Maps Review]

Jennifer Neveu, Director of Marketing & Product Development, Masdel Inc.

I really love the Papillon MDC approach to leadership development. Their programs are well planned, easy to understand, unintimidating, and offer a wealth of knowledge to help sharpen and hone new skills. As a young leader, my goal is to continuously improve my leadership skills and notions to be the best I can be for both myself and my team.

I had the opportunity to take the ‘Leading Teams: QUESTIONING LIKE A COACH’​ live training webinar with Stefano Di Lollo. Aside from Stefano’s excellent presentation and pedagogy skills, he found a way of having us all participate and feel comfortable in doing so. Most importantly, I left that session feeling more empowered and ready to be a better leader with more tools in my toolbox.

I highly recommend these workshops. They can be easily booked into your busy calendar ahead of time and I guarantee you will walk away having learned a thing or two.

C.J., Director, H-Qc

Over the past two years, I have had the privilege of being coached by Stefano Di Lollo in my development as the leader of a large-scale technology project. Through our conversations, reflections, and discussions, I have learned to know myself better and to target actions that make a difference. Among other things, we particularly worked on collaboration in difficult situations while exploring ways to support other leaders within my organization to help them perform. Through his very human approach, his illustrations, and his experience, Stefano demonstrated his coaching knowledge with me and allowed me to see how to put the strategies I explored into practice. Thank you for this precious time spent together that made me grow as a leader!

Leader, Aerospace Industry

One of the BEST training programs I’ve experienced over the past 5 years. I wish I had this training in one of my MBA classes years ago or early in my career. Thank you, Stefano! 

Aerospace industry professional

Very brief but interactive sessions with many practical tips were quite useful and insightful. A sincere thank you to Coach Stefano for this learning experience! I’ll be practicing. 😉

Sophie Jacques, Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp.

Very interesting training! Thank you, Stefano! I will certainly use the different approaches I have learned in the last few days. The NavCon program’s structure divided into 8 virtual blocks of time was also convenient for me.

Senior Management, PWC

Fantastic course! Now I’m curious to see more from Papillon MDC. I’d now love to try advanced programs following this Nav-C one.

Evgenii / PWC Senior Manager

Stefano, this was a fantastic course, I enjoyed Navigational Conversations a lot! It opened my eyes to some aspects of better management practices, even if the course is not only about management.

S.H., Pratt & Whitney Canada

I’ve experienced numerous workshops in the last 15 years. Workshops led by Stefano are an entirely different animal than anything I’ve experienced. I truly enjoyed Impactful Conversations and next I’d like to take Navigational Conversations. I found the portion on blind spots and how the mind works quite interesting. Great learning.

Director, Transervice Integrated Solutions Canada Inc.

Stefano keeps everyone engaged & the training never felt dull. There are many parts of the training that will be extremely beneficial to me. Certain components can be used in any conversation right away while others will take a little more time to integrate. Great learning!

Aerospace Specialist, Pratt

Stefano’s artistic style is as present in his content presentation (his drawings wow) as it is in how he speaks during the workshop. His demonstration of giving feedback in the role-playing exercise was very impressive because he simply used the tools he showed us. This was very “impactful” for me and I’m glad I made time for learning because I’m usually too busy. This will be useful.

Manager, P&WC

Thanks, Stefano! I really like the way the Impactful Conversations training was built & presented. Having several sessions instead of 2 full-day sessions worked very well (I was able to be more concentrated, I had the opportunity to think about what we learned, & see where/how it can apply in our work environment, & then discuss REAL situations). Very satisfied with this course (both with the content & the presenter).

DR, Director of IT

The coaching with Valerie Legge was an enlightening experience. I quickly started looking forward to our scheduled meetings and the value they would bring. Valerie is a wonderful coach and I especially liked that everything she speaks about is presented in a way that related to me personally. Valerie gave me the tools to look at and approach situations in different ways and choose the option best suited it. Valerie builds on existing strengths resulting in positive and enjoyable coaching sessions that I always left encouraged to implement what I had learned. Valery has initiated a personal growth from which I personally, my company and my team have benefited greatly.

N.F., Executive Leader

Mirella has perfected the art of executive coaching by combining her deep knowledge of mental schema, her understanding of business operations and structures, and her ability to quickly grasp her coachees’ abilities, capabilities and environment.

Throughout my coaching journey with her, she challenged me tremendously and encouraged me to experiment new ways in showing up and in deploying my leadership fully and authentically. This was always done with respect, kindness, and support.

T.S., VP, Customer Programs, Aerospace

My team engaged Mirella through Zoom Webinar during lockdown. Mirella’s engagement with the team was critical to the success of our overall event and in this challenging context. She engaged us with insights, spurring both introspection and conversation amongst my leaders. In our case the theme which ran across was an installing growth mindset within ourselves, our peers, and teams. It was exactly the time of “nutrients” we needed in the moment and driving our path forward. Top scores from my team and lives on!

Michel Labbé | Transmission Design | Pratt & Whitney Canada

It was a pleasure to attend and participate in your class, Navigational Conversations.  Stefano, I would have liked to have seen you facilitate a little closer  (in-person for example).  The communication, exchanges, and interactions were excellent in the group (during the online version of this program).  Stefano, I liked your authenticity and spontaneity.  The techniques taught (conversational coaching, open-ended questioning, and feedback techniques) were presented in a simple and easy-to-apply way.  These techniques can be useful to all of us in our personal/family life and at work (with teammates or direct reports).  Feedback given in the right way can make all the difference between helping a person become aware of their potential for improvement and encouraging them to move forward vs. creating a lot of frustration, negative thoughts, lost sleep, and anger that may linger. Thanks again Stefano, and see you next time!
