Why is Great Traits Academy different?

What courses do you offer?

We are very excited to be launching our first signature course, The Self-Starters Guide to Success and Happiness. This 8-part course will leave you with practical tools that will help you achieve success and happiness the rest of your life.

Who is this course for?

The course is for self-starters, life-long learners, and high achievers that want greater success and happiness.

The course is for anyone who feels like there is something more out there but aren’t sure how to reach it.  Stop holding yourself back. 

If you want super engaging, highly effective, fun course work; if you want to be coached by an Olympic legend and inspired by an Olympic icon, then WE WANT YOU.  But you do the work.  That is the self-starter part.

What will you learn?

  • Your life will be transformed. Guarantee it. When was the last time you were coached by two of the Olympics best?

  • You will see a massive increase in self-awareness; one of the most important elements to achieving success and happiness.

  • You will discover what actually makes you feel successful and happy; be able to clearly define that for yourself at this time in your life. (Hint: It changes over time just as we do!)

  • You will master the power of your thinking to get breakthrough results.

  • You will overcome procrastination and the fear of failure so that you stop holding yourself back from success and happiness.

  • You will become a master programmer that uses powerful questions to get the most out of your super-computer brain.

Things You Need to Know!

  • Who are the founders of Great Traits Academy?

    You will be led through the Academy by one of the Olympics most winning coaches, Debbie Muir, and one of the Olympics most inspiring athletes and humanitarian, Mark Tewksbury. Can you imagine having access to a multiple gold medal winning coach who will guide you each step of the way to be your best? Or being inspired by an Olympic Champion celebrated for his fight for human rights with a Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award (2019) and appointed a Companion of the Order of Canada (2020)? Between Debbie and Mark, success and happiness are covered from many different angles!

  • What do I get when I purchase the Self-Starter’s Guide to Success and Happiness program?

    The program consists of 8 fundamental traits, each its own micro-course outlining step-by-step the actions needed to succeed. Each trait begins with a Trait Talk, an exclusive talk show hosted by Steve Gatenby, where Mark and Debbie explore the ideas you will put into action. You will also receive an audio-visual lesson from Coach Debbie that teaches the trait and explains the exercises to be completed, which you will find in your own downloadable workbook. It’s like a training log where you can track your progress and watch as each trait builds on the last. In the end you will have mastered the 8 traits needed to find success and happiness for the rest of your life. And, as an added bonus, it’s fun and motivating to do.

  • Timewise, what can I expect?

    The Self-Starter’s Guide to Success and Happiness is a self-guided program designed to be done on your time, at your pace. After watching the Trait Talk video and the audio-visual lesson, you get to apply the ideas and skills you are learning in your life, in real time. How much time you spend on each trait is really up to you but, generally speaking, the more effort you put in, the better your results will be. You will see the interconnectedness of the traits as you progress through the program.

  • Our promise to you.

    We want you to build the skills needed to find success and happiness for the rest of your life. This takes time! But if you are willing to learn the traits and apply the exercises we give you, we guarantee that you will transform into a new and better you. This is our promise!
