Christine's life turned upside down in 2009 after she gave birth to her first child. She found it difficult to juggle her new life as a mother and continue to excel in her career. Things didn't get any easier as her family grew. Christine decided the only way to find answers was to conduct research on how mothers balance their life at home with their careers. The results were shocking - the truth was, most mothers struggled and Christine wasn't alone. The Mother of All Jobs was published in 2018 and it brings together the wisdom of the women who opened up about everything into a manifesto for happy professional families. Her book shines a light on the damage social media can have on new mothers and brings them hope that having children and a successful career is possible. Follow Christine on Instagram and Twitter.

#110: LIES: The Impossible Dream Of Having It All – Christine Armstrong
School For Fathers Podcast
Do you feel like you’ve been hearing the same conversations about working parents for years, yet not enough has changed? This week my guest, Christine Armstrong, shares how she’s on a mission to blow apart the LIES about working parents and instead dig into the truths of what actually works. There’s a false narrative that if you just work harder everything will be fine, regardless of the struggles of balancing motherhood with a career. While you may feel you’re alone in these struggles, this is not the case. Yet having this conversation with other women can only take us so far. For real progress to be made we need to engage men and leadership as well. Christine discusses how we can achieve this, while also providing tips & strategies that will help you stay sane(ish) as a working parent.

SE2 Ep 6: Christine Armstrong: The Mother of All Jobs
Before we begin - Click the following link to subscribe to the New Leaf Nutshell, breaking down the most controversial of motherhood topics and doing all the Googling, so you don't have to. This month, I'm debunking Sleep Training and exploring its murky waters, as we discover the secret (or lack thereof)... of getting your tiny terror to sleep --> https://newleafpodcast.substack.com/p/the-new-leaf-nutshell-should-i-sleep?r=aze8z&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&utm_source=copy I am over the moon to have the amazing writer, vlogger, speaker and consultant Christine Armstrong joining New Leaf. Christine is a mother of three, and author of the incredibly successful book, Mother of All Jobs, which explores the battle to make modern parenting actually work - from fertility all the way up to having school age kids and balancing lengthy school holidays with working hours, our relationships, our careers and our own sanity whilst also trying to be there for our kids . Not a particularly easy subject - and one she battles through whilst also managing to make you laugh and want to be her friend, of course. What Christine also talked about at length, is the absolutely essential role our partners play in navigating this minefield. In New Leaf, I’ve so far rather neglected talking about our other halves, which I know seems a bit mad as obviously it takes two to tango, and is so essential to modern feminism, in terms of making parenting more equal. Christine really, really made me think hard about this afterwards. In the episode, she talks a lot about her mum, a 1970s feminist who had strong ideals about her daughters not ever ending up being dependent on a partner, and there is a moment where she talks about her mum’s desire that she ‘married well' - something I misunderstood initially, as I thought she was basically saying marry rich - but instead she talks about basically marrying a decent human being, who actively wants to be involved in the parenting and wants to be actively supportive of whatever your choices are following a baby. And if they aren’t your partner any more, someone who still parents equally can make all the difference to your professional and personal life. We discuss where life, relationships, babies, jobs and society all crash into each other - and everything in between. Introducing, Christine.
In this episode, I talk to Christine Armstrong, the founder of Armstrong & Partners and a researcher, consultant and writer, about the future of work.I became aware of Christine's work through her fantastic vlogs, which she publishes every week on LinkedIn. They cover all matter subjects related to work and life, including the perils of Zoom, the pain of homeschooling, and the problem of assuming that flexible work is the answer to all our work/life challenges.She also offers a refreshing take on some of the steps organisations need to take to make work better, and I enjoy not just her videos but her writing on the subject. As well as her book, Mother of All Jobs, released in 2018, Christine also writes for the Telegraph, Grazia, and Management Today, amongst others.There are plenty of folks throwing around platitudes and empty opinions at the moment related to work and how that intersects with our personal lives. I think you'll discover in this podcast that Christine is not one of those people. We chatted about the difference between flexible and remote work, burnout, and how businesses need to think about redesigning work at an organisational, team and individual level. Plus, how business models affect our understanding of the way we expect people to work - specifically, the problems with using TIME as the primary output.LINKS:Christine's LinkedIn profileArmstrong & PartnersFuture Work/Life newsletter Hosted on Acast.
