HEY, PROJECT MANAGER.

Imagine a work-life so aligned you confidently flow

through every part of your day.

Let's make that your reality.

 

Work-life balance?

 

What’s that lie and who has time for it, right?

 

Doesn’t it sound like an entirely made-up concept from some overly optimistic life coach? 

 

It’s hard to imagine achieving that balance when it feels like you have to put in 10x everyone else's effort to get the same results at work.

 

Not that it ever feels like enough, though.

 

You’re practically an authority on burnout and exhaustion from the constant grind. (How does it seem like everyone else is thriving while you’re just stuck?)

 

You’re tired of existing where you’re devalued and unrecognized by leadership, so done with trying to feel “qualified” enough while you spin your wheels with the same unproductive situations. 

 

You spend your days going from task to task and now you’ve lost sight of the big picture, too overwhelmed to make progress on your own ideas and opportunities. 

 

But you’ve got a job and a way to pay the bills. And maybe you’ve also got decades of internalized shame saying “you aren’t allowed to be uncomfortable and expect something better for yourself.”

So, you just keep hustlin’—unsure how to set and maintain boundaries, improve your skills, or gather up the confidence to take action on some much-needed changes. 

 

I see you.

If it’s been a long time since you prioritized yourself and balanced all that professional development with a little personal development, you need an approach to synchronize work and life.

 

To create career advancement that doesn’t jeopardize your personal life. To build authority, be a happier, healthier, more strategic leader, and craft a work-life you love.

I can relate.

I earned my stripes as a PM, spearheading projects in everything from AppDev to digital marketing and communications, mergers and acquisitions, and community advocacy and innovation. Eventually, I buckled under the pressure of conforming to the 'right way' of being a PM in Corporate America, struggling hard with the next best move. 

 

Chances are–what you’re feeling right now, I felt too. 

 

My life changed when I got honest about my goals and future and found the courage to go after what I wanted.

I’m Christina, the Strategic Alignment Coach for project professionals who want to create a day-to-day that flows and feels like their OWN and be in charge of their careers for a change. 

I’m a thinking introvert (with an intuition game so on-point it hurts) and your confidante and guide, armed with a sprinkle of comic relief.

My job is to help you move from a loop of resistance and frustration to an abundant career that aligns with the life you want to live and the impact you want to make in the world.

Christina is the real deal. She didn't read about this in a book, she experienced it in real life and now she has come out on the other side and is determined to help people see the light even if it seems dark.

 

If you are facing similar challenges that Christina did now is the time to reach out. Have a conversation with her. I did and it was extremely enlightening. You can thank me in the morning, but for now, make that connection. Take control of your life.

Top 5 reasons I work with PMs & other project pros

(you know we love a good list)

  1. We think differently. We strategize, problem solve, and approach the world in a unique way.
     

  2. We usually fall through the cracks. We look like we have it all together and people are used to us holding things down for everyone else.
     

  3. We encounter unique frustrations, questions, and challenges around influence, boundaries, efficiency, productivity, agency, and identity.
     

  4. We hold ourselves back from what's possible because of limiting and unproductive beliefs, thoughts, and habits.
     

  5. We deserve a life of purpose. With work that feels like flow, not force. Work that feels like ours, not someone else's. And a day-to-day we're super stoked about. ​

I already considered myself a well organized professional before working with Christina, but I needed help in demonstrating my process. She helped me refine the systems I used to keep track of projects, deadlines, and critical decisions made by project owners.

 

When I started leading project teams, I had a tough time asking superiors to complete tasks and she helped improve my assertiveness in doing just that. More importantly, she taught me strategies to build respect within the project team so that tasks were completed effectively, and on time.

 

With her help, I was better prepared to build necessary structure out of large, ambiguous projects, and within a few months, I had the confidence to move into a more demanding role as a Program Manager.

 

If you’re looking to enhance your skill set, find a new path, or a confidence you didn’t know you had, I would highly recommend working with Christina.

A work-life YOU love.

Your certifications and expert ability to maintain the status quo aren’t making you feel fulfilled because you can’t shake that nagging feeling you’re living up to someone else’s definition of success.

 

But knowing where to start and gathering up the courage to make BIG life changes on your own feels impossible.

 

It’s so tempting just to vent to your colleagues and feel better for a moment because they share your experiences and understand your frustrations. But, the thing is, your coworkers are actually your competition and don’t always have your best interests at heart. 

 

And life coaches—or even your well-meaning support system of friends and family—don’t understand the unique pressures we PMs face. 

 

That’s why I developed this program specifically to help overworked, under-challenged project professionals find their flow and craft a work-life they love. Within a matter of months. Not years. 

 

It's time to normalize self-expression, introspection, and compassionate, no-nonsense leadership in the project management space.

Light and Shadow

My career has been on a definite upward trend since working with Christina. When I first approached her, I was dealing with some negative feedback on my performance review. I knew I had to improve quickly in several areas to feel secure in my current job.

 

Now I've been getting more positive feedback, and seeing better results with my work. My program with Christina was a major factor in this turnaround!

 

I'm most proud of working with Christina to create my Action Plan. This is a single document that encompasses so much material, and it lays out in detail how I'll continue to get to where I want to be.

You're not alone.

Maybe you’re this close to becoming a PM dropout. 

 

Or you just want to learn how to work from flow and intuition, not force, insecurity, and frustration. 

 

Whichever stage you’re at, regardless of whether you choose to work with me, it’s important you know you aren’t the only PM who feels tired, burned out, or out of place. 

 

And you deserve total agency over your life and career and the ability to practice project management YOUR way.

 

I see that spark. 

 

Let’s figure out how to give it a little oxygen… then douse it in gasoline, shall we?

I hired Christina because she’s easy to talk to and understood what I was experiencing without me having to say much. She can articulate things when I can’t! She helped me take a step back, look clearly at what the real issues were, and make sense of how to control them.

 

My relationship with my work and myself has changed because now I know I don’t have to fix how everyone sees me or change myself. 

 

If you’re thinking of working with Christina, know that she can talk you through it, whatever it is you’re feeling, or just listen and then help you navigate your next steps! The insight I got from our discussions was helpful and I definitely got clarity about my next move.

FAQ

 

Is this program right for me?

The 90-Day PM Level-Up is right for you if you’re a project manager or professional with at least 1 year of project-based experience and you’re ready to take a more holistic approach to work and life. 

 

If you want to break unproductive patterns, improve your skills, create a day-to-day you love, and define success, happiness, and fulfillment on YOUR terms, then I want to work with you!

 

This isn’t for you if…

You only want resumes or HR-focused advice. I’m not HR-focused. I’m YOU-focused. 

 

While we definitely can adjust your LinkedIn profile and resume positioning, the work we do together balances your career with personal development to get you out of the hustle and grind. 

 

You just need to come prepared to look inward and put in the work that will help you change your life long-term. 

 

Will this be worth it?

As a fellow PM, I get it. Intangibles that aren’t tied to immediate returns can feel terrifying. And while I can’t answer this question with hard data (because success looks different for everyone), I can say it truly depends on your goals and what you want for yourself.

 

For example:

  • My clients looking to make more money or find a better work environment accomplish that and more (one PM who set out to find a better environment found that dream work environment PLUS a salary increase of $54k—without negotiating!).

  • My clients who want answers to questions like, "what comes after this in my career?" learn to create opportunities around their unique gifts and work styles, which means less force and more flow.

 

Bottom line:
You’re here because you want more for yourself and don’t know where to start. Start with an intro call. 

 

Isn’t 12 weeks a long time?

From a PM standpoint, 12 weeks is a whole quarter. Yikes, right? 

 

But it’s going to FLY by in a blink. You’ll get so much inner work done and create so much alignment in your work-life that you’ll wish you had longer to analyze it all with a support system and accountability partner. Trust me.

Is this a group/cohort or one-on-one?

I only offer 1:1 coaching services at this time because it’s the best way to customize your experience and ensure you maximize your success and gains out of our time together, which is ultimately the goal. 

 

What kind of access do I get to you?

We meet weekly via Zoom for 12 weeks and you get my ongoing support via email or Voxer for text/voice note communication during the program. Plus, you get bonus mini-trainings every few weeks!

 

I’ve got more questions…

I’ve got answers! Reach out to me at christina[at]mangoflowconsulting.com. 

 

If you feel ready and want to do a vibe check to make sure I’m the real deal, book a call now because I can’t wait to talk to you!
