#259 Christine Armstrong: The Truth About Work & Parenting

Christine Armstrong is an author, researcher and speaker on the future of work. She is a contributing editor of Management Today, She is known to 'blow up the bullshit about working parenting and dig into the truth about what works. And what really doesn’t.' You might have read her piece in the Times that went viral called 'why working mums are being sold an impossible dream about work/life balance — and how to set the record straight' a piece promoting the publication of her brilliant book The Mother of All Jobs: How to Have Children and a Career and Stay Sane(ish. We recorded this episode pre-lockdown, and Christine is now researching our response to working from home en masse and asking what people want to happen next. I really hope you enjoy this episode we got into the nitty gritty of parenting, work and why flexible working doesn't always work - and how we can try and get it right.
