How to desensitize a bird to new places

Hello, I was wondering how you desensitize a parrot to new places. I've gotten my african grey to wear a harness, however when I try and go out the door to the room he freaks out. I really want to be able to take him on walks and go places, but I cant even get out of the house. I read somewhere saying to just hold his feet down and make him face his fears, to show him that there is nothing to be worried about. But then I read somewhere else saying that by forcing them to overcome their fears it can make them lose trust in you. Does anyone have any advice on how to get him past his fears?
