TG SHORT AND FULL BIO: WEBSITE

HI, I AM TRACIANA 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN MY WORK!

 I AM SO GLAD YOU’RE HERE!

About Me

 

You may know me …

A Mentor. 

A Mindful Media Entrepreneur. 

And The Creator of the Fearless Listening™  Methodology.

 

 

I have deeper roots as a native New Yorker who grew up between Harlem & Paris. I am a tea aficionado, an unsuccessfully recovering Virgo, and the mother of a tweenage son.

 

My Personal Core Manifesto

 

I believe that it is essential to cultivate Fearless Listening ™ daily to embody the most profound elements of what makes us remarkably designed to fulfill both our individual purpose and professional endeavors. This is my philosophy, mission, and purpose that is the cornerstone of every action I take. I developed The Fearless Listening ™ Methodology as a powerful process for unlocking the hidden human potential within — including my own. I believe that “we are all connected by breath. And through breath, music is our human ability to focus our intentions through sound vibration”. I developed the  One Sound On technique, which interweaves song, music, story share,  and vibration in order to create Fearless Listening Community and Embodiment. One Sound On transcends language and our own barriers thereby invoking our core connections. You can leverage this technique to transform the environment and cultures around you and yourself. 

 

For the last 20 years, I have dedicated myself to learning how to hone the skill and knowledge necessary for Fearless Listening ™to pursue self-actualization in the midst of fulfilling professional excellence. Now I am sharing how to unlock hidden personal and professional performance potential.

 

 

How I Have Fulfilled My Quest

 

Voted by the Huffington Post as one of “America’s Most Fearless Women” for the work I have done in leadership, workforce, and personal development, my insights are regularly featured on national media outlets. 

 

I believe that “Using the unique power of our voice, we have the power to change the world.” During the past two decades, I have been on a personal quest to do so by using my voice in a series of uncommon ways to facilitate the changes I believe are critical to embody.  This quest has led me to become an internationally acclaimed vocalist, a motivational speaker, an organizational development consultant,  a mindful media producer and a digital activist. 

 

 

 

Musical Artistry

 

“Traciana Graves has chosen to embrace a wide range of global musical influence focused through an extraordinarily powerful and sensual voice in imitation of no one.” 

                                                

Vernon Reid, Grammy Award Winning Producer and Founder of Living Colour

 

 

 

Throughout the multifaceted areas of my career, I  have spent the past two decades performing and telling stories typically untold around the world through producing music and mindful media.  As an internationally acclaimed vocalist, I sing and compose songs in French, Sanskrit, Spanish, Portuguese, Swahili, and English.  Also, I have tenure as a background vocalist for various artists, including Celine Dion and six-time Grammy award-winners Steel Pulse.   Whether headlining performances at stadiums, festivals, or cathedrals throughout multiple continents, I have held fast to my mission to leverage the unique power of music to build cultural bridges between global audiences.

Keynote Speaker

Traciana’s presentation is a Barn Burner. It affected everyone in attendance with a really, really life-altering message.”

 

 -Gina Clinton, professor of Humanities and Communications at Clinton College

 

 

As a keynote speaker, I have had the privilege of sharing my ability to foster powerful shifts throughout the country at conferences and in arenas like Madison SquareGarden, prisons, higher educational institutions and corporate retreats.

 

 

Consulting and Coaching

 

“I would like to thank Traciana and her team for providing insights and best practices that help companies’ workforces to flourish.” 

-Adrienne Trimble, General Manager, Diversity & Inclusion Toyota

 

Throughout the course of my career as a consultant, I developed various, customized curriculum and training programs for executives, entrepreneurs, and educators. While working throughout the country to share this work with fortune 500 companies, the WNBA, and hundreds of higher education institutions, I have had the opportunity to share my expertise as a leadership strategist, workforce development consultant, and potent coach.

 

 In addition, I have leveraged my Fearless Listening ™ Methodology to develop the Say Something Beautiful ™ Campaign. Say Something Beautiful is a multimedia storytelling project that evolved from my customizing my Fearless Listening ™ Methodology to create a scaffolded anti-bullying initiative, Project Bully Free Zone, that I created for the workplace and  educational institutions throughout the country. I developed Say Something Beautiful ™ as an extension of  the civility training and events I developed  for tens of thousands of participants.  Upon  recognizing the need to leverage the Fearless Listening Methodology further to foster greater empathy, vulnerability, and positive psychology that were necessary to create greater safety and inclusion, I developed this campaign. To date, Say Something Beautiful has been featured on live televised events and shared partnerships nationwide with leading organizations including the WNBA, One Billion Rising, the Knicks, and has been shared throughout the country with leading universities, organizations, companies, homeless shelters, underserved schools, and prisons.

 

My Bonafides

Along the way, I discovered how to best leverage my practical experiences with the research I accomplished during my academic tenure at the Sorbonne, Georgetown University, and New York University. This discovery has been the foundation for my development of The Fearless Listening™ Leadership Methodology. The Fearless Listening TM Methodology is enhanced as it branches into two primary focus areas, business and creativity.  Fearless Listening TM Creativity unlocks hidden personal and professional performance potential by helping individuals to realize self-actualization in the midst of fulfilling professional excellence.  I believe that “we are all connected by breath. And through breath, music is our human ability to focus our intentions through sound vibration”. I  developed the One Sound On technique, which interweaves song, music, story share,  and vibration in order to create Fearless Listening Community and Embodiment. One Sound On transcends language and our own barriers thereby invoking our core connections. You can leverage this technique to transform the environment and cultures around you and yourself. 

 

My Journey

Cornerstone moments in my journey have been composed of my doing deep inner work while serving at ashrams throughout the world as well as a two-year silent meditation retreat, during which I first discovered how to fearlessly listen within to make peace with all of the events that were a part of my life.

 

The Two Key Insights By Which I live

While fulfilling my quest to cultivate Fearless Listening ™ (to embody the most profound elements of what makes us remarkably designed to fulfill both our individual purpose and professional endeavors), I developed two key insights by which I live:

 

  • First, it is essential to achieve self-actualization in the midst of realizing professional excellence.
  • Second, to develop and sustain a cult following, it is critical to developing Listening Leadership™ Cultures, as we cannot ignore the humanness that is at play in every move and decision each of makes. 

My Boldest Venture To Date

 

In 2019, I founded my most recent and boldest venture – The Visionary Leader Network™ (The VLNetwork™). VLN is a one-of-a-kind global media and training platform dedicated to supporting visionaries in the entrepreneurial and corporate spheres to achieve greater profit, faster progress, and deeper personal connection

 

As an extension of the deep work I have accomplished with leaders in the private and corporate sectors, I am now pleased to make The Visionary Leader Network™ available to the public. The VLNetwork is unlike other business platforms that niche down their content to business strategies as they cut out the human 

 

In Appreciation of Your Fearlessness and Vision,
Traciana Graves
