What is The Leadership Center?

The Leadership Center at Sugar Lake Lodge is a new state-of-the-art leadership facility located three hours North of the Twin Cities. Our facility has invested in the latest meeting space, technology, and onsite training tools such as a high ropes course and experiential team building tools. It is set on 350 wooded acres with a beautiful lake and access to an airport. The Leadership Center can easily host training for five to 75 people with various overnight accommodations such as cabins, lake-front lodge rooms, and full-service meals. In addition, this leadership facility boasts a championship golf course, full marina, fitness center and winter activities such as snow shoeing and cross country skiing. 


We have been expanding Sugar Lake Lodge as a destination for organizations to get away to 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 combining place, space and pace that describes Sugar Lake Lodge with a unique Leadership Center; providing access to great leadership content and delivery if needed. Or, in some cases, delivering components that complement your agenda.

We have strategically partnered with our friends at The Prouty Project, ACTIV8 and The Blandin Foundation to bring your organization the best of the best in leadership development. Even our food philosophy, developed with the help of the Chef Marshall O’Brien Group, is geared toward improving your leadership style.
