IT ALL STARTS WITH EMPATHY

Applied Empathy is a design methodology, pioneered by Sub Rosa, that empowers leaders and their businesses to explore, learn, and grow through deeper understanding.

Our process has been recognized as a progressive approach that grounds detailed planning and execution in rich insights to provide our partners with clarity and confidence.

In addition to our client work, Applied Empathy has been recognized by the media, in academia, and across the public sector as a revolutionary platform for gaining understanding and bringing new thinking to life.

GETTING HANDS ON

To support our Applied Empathy platform, we’ve developed a powerful facilitation tool that helps individuals get closer to themselves, their friends, and their colleagues through thoughtful questions and inspired conversation.
