IT ALL STARTS WITH EMPATHY

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

Our process has been recognized as a progressive approach that brings rich understanding together with detailed planning and execution – providing our partners with the clarity to act with confidence.

In addition to our work with our clients, Applied Empathy has been recognized by the media, the academic community, the public sector, and the publishing industry as a revolutionary platform for gaining understanding and bringing new thinking to life.

BRINGING EMPATHY TO EVERYONE

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