THE LEADERSHIP STUDIO- FALL 2011
In the spring of 2010, Muskoka Woods opened the doors to the Leadership Studio. To say the space is beautiful would be a gross understatement. I could try and describe the tall and open reclaimed barn wood ceilings or the sweeping views of Lake Rosseau from wall panel sized glass sliding doors, but I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.
Over a year from its grand opening, the Leadership Studio has not lost any of its charm. Created as a space to develop leadership in youth and adults, the studio developed its curriculum by engaging the senses along with the intellect.
This Fall, the Leadership Studio piloted several new programs. Favorites include: Bridging Cultures with the Pauline Johnson: A Poetry and Paddle Making Experience, Coffee Shops and the Spread of Ideas, Stargazing and the Power of Seeing and Sherlock Holmes Non-linear thinking.
In addition to the beauty of the setting and the high quality of the programming, there is the FOOD! Made fresh and in studio daily, you would be hard pressed to find a more delectable meal offering in Muskoka. In short, it’s incredible!
However, the best part of the Leadership Studio is the opportunity for Muskoka Woods to host groups of people with extremely important mandates. Included in our visitors this season are Streetlevel (working to eradicate poverty), Urban Promise (empowering young street leaders), the International Justice Mission (building a national justice movement), Centennial High School ( building community for marginalized youth), and Trillium League ( bringing together young leaders).
"The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already."
