Full Description

How can we unleash the innate potential of people, institutions and groups in communities to address our common challenges? And how can we do this by creating a civic culture in which people come together to shape their own lives and gain real hope?

In Unleashed, Richard C. Harwood draws on his 30 years of experience working with communities to answer these two critical questions. Harwood shows us that:

  • Change ripples out in communities through an interaction of highly intentional actions and serendipity.
  • The change then cascades and spreads through a chain of events over time.
  • These interactions often occur in unexpected ways, in unimaginable combinations of people and partners, and with unforeseen results. This chain reaction can be proactively catalyzed and nurtured.
  • Through these interactions, people can restore a belief that we can get things done together.

Americans yearn to create a society that reflects the best of us, the best in us. In Unleashed, Harwood helps us see how we can create a more equitable, fair, inclusive and hopeful path forward.
