We’ve made it possible for individual organizations to get the support they need

If you’re part of an individual organization – large or small – that wants to Turn Outward, we can support you in a number of important ways:

Getting Started

The Getting Started Package is a hands-on training by our Harwood Coaches available in 6- or 12-month packages. The experience is designed to help local organizations Turn Outward toward their community, develop and deepen their ability to lead Community Conversations, identify themes, and explore the implications for strategies, programs, and other efforts across the organization. Learn More…

Hire a Coach

Work with a certified Harwood Coach to effectively apply Harwood approaches and tools to your specific needs.  Coaches can support your entire organization, a particular team, or help develop an individual member of your staff. Gain confidence and clarity with “just-in-time support” and guidance on expanding your ability to Turn OutwardLearn More…

Send a Team to the Public Innovators Lab

Develop your team’s ability to Turn Outward and apply the key elements of the Harwood approach by sending them, together, to the Harwood Public Innovators Lab.  The Lab is a three–day immersion in the core elements of the Harwood practice and how to apply it in your daily work. The Lab helps people develop and deepen their existing work and uncover the best way to move your community and organization forward. Learn More…

Coming Soon:  Harwood in a ½ Hour

In early 2013, we will be releasing a suite of tools that anyone can use to begin applying elements of the Harwood approach.  These tools – which we call Harwood in a ½ hour – will be simple quizzes and questions that anyone can use to learn and apply key ideas in less than 30 minutes. No prior training or knowledge of Harwood will be necessary! Try the Turn Quiz to start.
