Everyone is different, it makes no sense to answer with stereotypes. We also hate boring, so we explain things in fun, unexpected, and interesting ways. We do this combining Sociology and Semiotics (among other fields), and lots of images to translate complicated concepts in a way you can easily understand.

To inspire people to excel at being human.

Our Mission

To uncover and hone the human skills for the future, inspiring meaningful lives and creating positive and productive work cultures.

We do this through consulting and training that is interesting and engaging.

Clinical Sociology

Like the optometrist testing your eyes, Applied Sociology uses lenses to help you clearly see and understand the social. This helps make decisions, solve problems and manage workplace, family and friend's social expectations.

Semiotics

Semiotics is the science of meaning and interpretation (Watch video). We use it to come up with interesting ways to explain concepts and ideas.
