Aspiring Managers Group

Build the confidence, visibility, and skills you need to be a people manager through two "Management Material" classes and two discussion sessions (pick your time) every month.

If you feel stuck in your role, you're not alone.

Most people look back at their careers and wish they became a manager sooner. Others get to management, even though they don't want the position.

You could putz around in your current job for years, making less than enough to live a comfortable life.


Or you could get the help you need to be the next manager in your department.

You're so much more motivated when you're surrounded by people who all want to do the same thing. 

Our structure and personalized guidance will help you reach your management role.

In Aspiring Manager's Group Coaching, you'll:

Gain the confidence to network and interview with ease

Get the recognition and visibility you deserve

Expertly negotiate your way to a salary that meets your financial goals

Find out what you're missing and fix your blind spots

What are you waiting for? Join us today!

We only accept applicants who want to be people managers, have the time to dedicate to group coaching, and will apply what they learn in real time.

Aspiring Managers Group Coaching is a group of like-minded professionals who are working on their career goals together, facilitated by a career coach, Catherine Van Der Laan, who has a degree in neuropsychology and 8+ years of experience in career coaching. 

“There weren’t barriers to being honest. I felt like I could express how I really felt about the job and where I wanted to go. That was really helpful.”

- Amanda Rose

Aspiring Managers Group Coaching includes:


  • Two Management Material Master Series Classes every month

  • Two 1-hour live, interactive Zoom discussion sessions

Currently, our discussion sessions are held on Tuesdays.

  • 12:00-1:00 PM Eastern

  • Additional times will be added as needed (ask me).

The Management Material Master Series Classes are recorded ahead of time and released on Mondays, twice a month. We're going through a revolving 12-month, 24-class vetted series to build you into the "obvious" choice for the next open manager position in your department. Each month's curriculum is self-contained, meaning that you can start NOW.

When you sign up, a confirmation email will be sent to you with a link to the discussion session scheduling page.
