"Everyone has access to great content, so it really comes down to great delivery."

- Steve Cohen, Strategic Leadership Collaborative

Convene to Challenge to Change

Experience our all-in-one training facility and development center. The Leadership Center at Sugar Lake Lodge and its programs, meeting spaces, and expert facilitators strive to enhance your company meeting, corporate retreat, strategic planning or professional training session.

As many of you know, we have been expanding Sugar Lake Lodge as a destination for organizations to get away from the office and work on next year’s plan, develop leadership teams, or do what we’ve done – identify your next big idea or blue ocean strategy. Our blue ocean is becoming the place for organizational change and leadership development. We collaborate with industry-leading facilitators and their organizations to provide access to great leadership content and delivery. Or, in some cases, delivering components that complement your agenda.

It’s no secret that getting your leaders away from the office for a few days of strategizing, planning and bonding goes a long way toward making your business more productive. Now, Sugar Lake Lodge can help make that retreat more productive. We are proud to offer expert leadership facilitation through our partners like The Prouty Project, ACTIV8 and The Chef Marshall O’Brien Group. Yes even our food philosophy, developed with the help of The Chef Marshall O’Brien Group, is geared toward improving your leadership style.

We hope to see your team very soon at Sugar Lake Lodge.
