Socio-Logic
Ideas connecting people.

These days, everything is social.

Everything is about the way we relate and interact with the people around us.

While some lament that we are more disconnected than ever, understanding and navigating our connections with people has never been more important. Whether at work, in our communities, or amongst family and friends, the way we relate and interact with the people around us affects not only our satisfaction with life, but also how well we succeed in those spheres.

Socio-Logic is a sociological consulting company, based out of Dallas, TX, and founded by H. Scott Clemente. Socio-Logic combines the social science knowledge of how people interact with each other in different settings, with practical change-oriented approaches, to creating positive change in situations.

Put simply, Socio-Logic focuses on ideas connecting people.

Organizations
  

The "Ideal" of Organizations

Ideally, organizations are places where people gather to collaborate on a mission to provide some good or service that contributes and enriches the lives of those they serve. From this perspective, organizations are to be a source of community, connection, and purpose for their members and their clients.

The Actuality of Organizations

Yet, the complexity of human relationships that exist in even the smallest of organizations can make experiencing the ideal of an organization challenging for all members and clients.

Founders and CEO’s.

While founders and CEO’s might have great vision about the purpose their organization is supposed to serve, they do not always experience ease in realizing that vision in cooperation with the other members of the organization.

Managers.

Through leadership, managers serve to create a spirit of cooperative purpose amongst teams and departments. At the same time, even the most experienced of managers can struggle to lead teams to collaborate in a way that is both productive and satisfying, not only for the managers, but for their teams or department.

Individual Members.

The heart and the power of organizations comes from individual members who work to realize the vision and mission of the organization. Yet, individual members often struggle with a sense of empowerment about their own work or creating change in organizations.

Clients and Customers.

The clients and customers are who organizations live to serve and who make the organization sustainable. Yet, it is easy to get disconnected from the true needs of the clients and customers. Such a disconnect can leave customers and clients with a sense of alienation, and looking for other places to get those needs met.

The actual conditions at organizations can leave members and clients, alike, with a sense of disconnection. When this happens there can be conflict, a sense of “disorder,” or malaise in parts of the organization or in the organization as a whole. Additionally, organizations can find it difficult to retain customers or members to serve them.

Communities
  

Connected Communities

Communities are sometimes hard to define, but at one point or another, most of us have a longing for a sense of community. We find different avenues to satisfy our sense of community. Sometimes it is in the neighborhoods in which we live. At other times, it is in spiritual/religious groups or other kinds of groups in which we participate. Sometimes communities are places to which we physically go and sometimes they stretch beyond the limits of geography.

Disconnection in Communities

While communities can provide an experience that is rich and rewarding, members of communities can also feel frustrated, disappointed, and disconnected. In neighborhoods and cities, people want to see change, but do not know how to go about it. In other situations, people are not satisfied with the quality and level of engagement they experience within the groups that are the most meaningful to them. In other circumstances, communities experience significant conflict and strife and struggle to find their way through it.

Counseling
  

Relationship Counseling

Our relationships are often one of the greatest sources of meaning and joy in our lives, providing mutual support, acceptance, and companionship. Yet, sometimes, a sense of disconnect can occur, leaving us feeling disappointed, frustrated, or distressed.

Understanding Relationship Conflict

Whether it is a marriage or some other romantic bond, a close friendship, or an adult parent-child relationship, arguments do occur. Although arguments are natural, they do not always feel good. Arguments can become intense or frequent. Sometimes they seem like they come out of nowhere—one minute, you are enjoying yourself, and the next locked into a heated argument. Some people find themselves in a conflict loop, where they have a recurring argument that never seems to go away. Arguments are not always what they seem either; what might seem like a minor dispute can be representative of a much deeper conflict. As a metaphor, arguments can sometimes be the “mushrooms” that seemingly “sprout up” on their own, but instead rise from a complex bed of entanglements just below the surface.

How We Work Together

Whether you’re a community, organization, or an individual seeking change in an interpersonal situation, Socio-Logic treats working together as a true partnership with you.

We seek to understand your unique situation first.

We do not believe there is a single answer that fits every situation, and so you will not find us selling any pre-packaged solutions. Before it can be understood how Socio-Logic might be able to help, we have to understand your unique situation first. We value listening and seek an in-depth understanding of the perspectives of those involved with the situation and use a variety of social science “research methods” to gain that insight from them.

We trust you to be the expert on your situation.

We take your knowledge and combine it with social science expertise.

While individuals are the experts regarding their experience in situations, individuals might struggle to organize their thinking or experience in such a way that it facilitates creating change. Therefore, Socio-Logic pairs individuals’ unique perspectives, with formal social science knowledge and practical approaches, to make change doable.

H. Scott Clemente

H. Scott Clemente is the founder of Socio-Logic. Scott first became fascinated with how people interact with each other and how situations affect interaction early in life. In elementary and junior high school, Scott began to observe how various social groups at school recognized members. These observations led him to deliberately experiment to determine what outward symbols (clothing, hair, etc.) were fundamental to the perception of membership in particular groups. Scott also experimented with whether status and likability, could lead members of a group to accept a person as a member, even though some of the outward symbols used by the person would contradict membership.

Scott continued his interest in the social sciences, though eventually settled into a technical career in early adulthood, during the first days of the .COM era. While demonstrating technical proficiency, Scott also demonstrated an ability to work with people, and served as a technical team lead managing teams for over 10 years, on large-scale projects in business and technology. Eventually, Scott realized they enjoyed working with people and the social science behind working with people, more than the technology. Scott went back to school and early on began sociological consulting. Scott has both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in sociology, and is a sociology PhD Candidate. Whereas psychology can be described as the study of individuals and their traits/behavior, sociology can be described as the study of groups and interaction.
