Great Traits with Mark Tewksbury and Debbie Muir
Great Traits, founded by Olympic insiders Mark Tewksbury and Debbie Muir, delivers engaging, unique, impactful programs that show people how to perform at their best, and influence the environment around them in a positive and meaningful way.
It is often said that sport and business are much alike – both take place in a competitive landscape, both are performance driven and, hopefully, both are values based. Great Traits’ mission is to provide the foundation and inspiration for people to succeed in competitive, performance-driven environments. Mark and Debbie created the Great Traits High Performance System by distilling their Olympic success into fundamental principles applicable to all organizations.
The magic of the Great Traits High Performance System is that 24 simple, fundamental “traits of champions” work together in a plug-and-play way to create a sophisticated, inspired approach to a variety of challenges organizations often face. Over the past seven years, hundreds of top-tier clients have received customized programs to solve their wide-ranging challenges based on the Great Traits High Performance System.
The Great Traits high performance secrets and insights were born from real-life experience.
