about us

A small team with impressive cred.

Greenhouse is a committed group of leaders, coaches and entrepreneurs who are devoted to using the Greenhouse Method to help you unlock the potential in your life, your career, or your company by clarifying your purpose and creating the conditions for growth.

Why the name Greenhouse?

I often get the question, “What’s the meaning of the name ‘Greenhouse’?” It’s one of my favorite questions to answer, because the meaning is very rich to me. 

As a company, we’re on a mission to help people grow. To clarify who they are, what they want, and to take steps toward a life of greater fulfillment and impact in the everyday. 

And at its core, the name ‘Greenhouse’ speaks to our process for doing that. You see, greenhouses--the regular kind--they don’t grow plants. The plants flourish all on their own simply because the greenhouse has provided the right environment for the plant to thrive. The seeds already possess all the knowledge and potential they need to grow up into what they are supposed to be. It’s the right conditions that draw the seeds up and out of the ground and into a thriving plant.

You see, many people feel stuck in their life and career, not sure what’s next. They know there’s more they’re capable of, and a greater contribution to make. But it’s unclear what they’re good at, what they enjoy, or what they should do. And they don’t know where to turn or what they might need to ultimately draw it out of them and find their way forward. 

I’ve been there as well, and I couldn’t find a place to go for help. So I created GREENHOUSE to be the go-to place for helping people and organizations clarify their purpose and live into their potential.

Everyone has unique gifts and abilities hardwired into who they are. But for various reasons, they’re living life at a fraction of who they could be. Our method helps you unlock the potential in your life, your career, or your company by clarifying your purpose and creating the right conditions in your life to allow for unlimited growth.
