"When growing leaders, one of the most difficult challenges is the ability to shift with the changing demands in leadership. Dr. Christine McPhail brings a level of wisdom, currency, and discernment that elevates the 'traditional' leader into the transactional leader needed to move organizations forward. I have used the McPhail Group to support leadership development work at two organizations. I can personally say that the McPhail Group will provide a return on investment that cannot be realized through other traditional approaches."
—Dr. Kimberly Beatty, Chancellor, Metropolitan Community College
"The knowledge and perspective that a legendary higher education CEO was able to provide to me, a current higher education CEO, and my team was invaluable. She helped all of us understand and focus on the need to look at the organization through a broad-based lens—something that often gets overshadowed as we concentrate on specific areas we are charged to lead."
—Dr. Rodney A. Ellis, Chancellor, Southern University Shreveport Louisiana
"Christine is the consummate professional. I have worked with her on several complex and time-sensitive projects. She is organized, timely, and responsive. Moreover, she delivers a quality product and she does so on time! Quite simply, a decision not to work with her is a decision not to succeed."
—Dr. Lorenzo L. Esters, founder and President, Esters Consulting, LLC

—Dr. Jim Murdaugh, President, Tallahassee Community College
