Are we the right fit for you and your organisation

Our Story

Quite simply, we exist to:

‘Grow your team to be the best it can possibly be’

To do this, we are on a Mission to:

‘Deliver world class team development and growth programs
that build authentic, healthy and awesome teams’

A bit of background about us so you know who you are dealing with

We are one of Australia’s market leading organisations and experts in the development of High Performance teams. We are at the forefront of…. STOP!
Blah, blah, blah…that just isn’t us.

We really don’t like big words, jargon and buzz words that are confusing and Corporate. To be honest (and we are VERY honest), we are frustrated by ‘Corporate’, non human organisations that kill innovation and creativity.

We’re not in to saying how great we are, we let our work (and our clients) with you do the talking for us.

Here is what they say

Who we really are

We are a Values driven organisation.

We Value…..


And want to work with teams in organisations who align with our Values

The Traction Team

Tom Trewartha (The boss!)

Building healthy team relationships is Tom’s passion.

After an adventurous start to post school life, he went to China to teach English in a Military University (and yes, they wore Military uniforms and marched in the Square!). This is where his love of teaching and developing others started.

It was then years of working as a manager, managing teams in the hospitality and retail industries. Both very fast paced industries, he required his teams to perform under pressure and he learnt a lot about the importance of building and maintaining healthy team relationships to run a successful outfit.

Then the travel bug took hold again and Tom lived and worked in the UK and then took time to explore Europe.
Feeling the need to formalise his skills, he returned to Uni and studied a double degree, including a Bachelor of Human Resource Management as well as a Bachelor of Hospitality and Tourism Management.

From here, Traction Teambuilding was born. Through his Tourism degree, he uncovered the power of experiential learning (the use of activity based learning to draw out behaviour) and thought, ‘This is the most powerful and effective way to draw out behavioural awareness in individuals and teams’.. and 4 years later here we are.

Having now worked with some of Australia’s largest organisations, including Red Bull, Origin Energy, AMP, KFC and more…he says he must be doing something right and having some impact because these clients keep coming back!
