What we're about

Some think communication is broken. We think it needs a reinvention.

In our changing landscape of job automation, political polarization, and digital addiction, effective communication is more important than ever.

Enter human skills. Coined by social psychologist Robert Katz, human skills is the ability to connect with whats deeply human in another person. It is the skill-set that allows for an authentic relationship to flourish.

Here at the Human Skills Lab we prototype and teach the skills needed to be fully human in our complex and often chaotic age.

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures bristling with prejudice and motivated by pride and vanity.” – Dale Carnegie, our spirit animal
