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 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. Tewksbury and Muir 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.
Great Traits was born from real-life experience. Muir has coached numerous athletes to Olympic gold medals, mentored many of Canada’s national team coaches, and now serves as a high-performance advisor within the Canadian sport world. Integrating her high-performance, educational, and curriculum design experience, she is currently focusing on the development and delivery of Great Traits’ signature product, the Corporate Champions Program. Tewksbury is an Olympic gold medalist who has inspired every Canadian Olympic team since 2004 and was Canada’s Chef de mission at the 2012 London Olympic Games. He is currently a director of the Canadian Olympic Committee and Chair of Special Olympics Canada.
