Why Sugar Lake Leadership Cohorts?

Get Out of Your Element. Step into Ours.

People ask why a Northern Minnesota resort like ours runs leadership development cohorts when we could be a 24/7/365 leisure and vacation destination. It’s true, our lakefront resort is an ideal spot for leisure, even during the winter months, but it’s this secluded environment that provides the ideal backdrop for focused, results-oriented retreats.

Many business leaders can save themselves the drive and take a seminar somewhere in the Twin Cities area, but those cramped, crowded, and loud venues are surrounded by distractions that are not conducive to the type of mindset and activities that really change you as a person. Get out of your element, take a journey to a quiet, beautiful place, and work with real leaders who will help you change the trajectory of your career and life.
