ABOUT THE PROGRAM
THE CEO LODGE
In 2018, we built a state-of-the-art accommodation, meeting room and facilitation space for YOU – our CEOs!
Each day, CEOs meet in the Leadership Studio, a building designed specifically to inspire and train young leaders. Part artist’s loft, part monastic retreat and part family cottage, this 4,000 square-foot, purpose-built space sits on the glistening shores of Lake Rosseau. Combining one-of-a-kind, hands-on learning with unparalleled outdoor amenities, the Leadership Studio offers a unique personal development experience for our CEOs.
WHAT TO EXPECT
KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
The CEO program is powered by Eagle’s Flight, an innovative leader in the development and delivery of practical training programs for the global business community. We have access to their top workshops and experiential programs designed to help the CEOs grow in their leadership development.
PERSONAL PROFILE SYSTEM®, DIMENSIONS OF BEHAVIOR (DISC)
Taught by John McAuley, the Personal Profile System® helps you better understand yourself and others. You will heighten your understanding of your behavioural profile and identify the environment most conducive to your success. At the same time, you will learn about the differences of others and the environment they need for productivity and teamwork.
*CEOs who do not attend school in the province of Ontario will not be able to receive the high school credit, however, they will receive all the same instruction and assessment. All CEOs will get an official diploma upon successful completion of the program and Muskoka Woods will approve 40 hours of community service for anyone who does not obtain the high school credit.

Over March Break, we take a team of CEOs to New Orleans. Last year, CEOs had the opportunity to run a daily program at a Kids Club, aid in yard clean up, build a ramp for a neighbour who could not enter her home, visit the elderly in a nursing home and serve the homeless. The CEOs were able to take on a new challenge, gain memorable experiences and seize an opportunity to help shape their world.
