Join us for an overview of Harwood’s work on November 5th

HarwoodLogoIt was clear during our August confab call with Rich Harwood that NCDD members are interested in learning more about the Harwood Institute’s approach to change.  I recently attended a Harwood retreat in Park City, Utah with a number of leaders in our field, and it occurred to me there that the Harwood Institute’s concepts provide a nice framework for all of us to think about our work and how we might present it to others in meaningful ways.

We’ve arranged for Harwood to run a one-hour webinar for NCDD members on Tuesday, November 5 at 2pm Eastern (11am Pacific).

Turning Outward: An Overview of The Harwood Institute’s Approach to Change

The Harwood Institute helps people and organizations address community challenges, improve their own effectiveness, and do their work in a way that makes communities stronger. They teach and coach people how to develop a deep understanding of their communities and then use that knowledge to fundamentally change the way they approach their work. They call this “turning outward” – using the community as the main reference point for both day-to-day and strategic decisions.

During this webinar, we will explore what it means to turn outward and Harwood staff will provide an overview of the Institute’s key frameworks that can help you accelerate your efforts to engage your community. Presenters will also talk about the upcoming Harwood Public Innovators Lab – a 3-day immersion into the Institute’s core concepts. The Lab will take place Dec. 10-12 in Alexandria, VA, and we’ve arranged a discounted rate for NCDD members.
