Traciana’s Superpower features her passion and unparalleled ability to  unlock hidden potential in the places we live, learn and work through her tenure as:

  • an academic

  • a master facilitator designer & speaker

  • an internationally acclaimed vocal artist


Traciana Graves is a native New Yorker who grew up between Harlem and Paris. She is the mother of a teenage son and a tea aficionado.

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

Traciana believes that “Using the unique power of our voice, we have the power to change the world.” Her belief has garnered her status as an internationally acclaimed vocalist (former background vocalist Celine Dion and six-time Grammy award-winners Steel Pulse), a motivational speaker, and an organizational development consultant. As an extension of the deep work she has accomplished with leaders in the private and corporate sectors, she founded The Visionary Leader Network ™ (The VL Network ™)– a global media and training platform that facilitates Fearless Listening Leadership, Cultures, and Visionary Ventures to mindfully cultivate our best self, connect to our boldest possibilities, and manifest professional and personal actualization.

More profoundly, Traciana discovered how to leverage her practical experiences with the research she achieved during her academic tenure at the SorbonneGeorgetown University, and New York University. This discovery is the foundation for her development of Happiness 360 and The Fearless Listening™ Methodology, a powerful process for unlocking the hidden human potential.

In addition, Traciana developed the One Sound On technique to create vocal connections through song, guided meditation, and story share. During One Sound On keynotes, town halls, and workshops, Traciana helps participants create powerful shifts in their personal narrative and interpersonal collaboration. Whether for work performance or personal living, these powerful townhalls facilitate a stronger, more inclusive workplace and personal culture.



Each Keynote features Traciana’s One Sound On Format to include

  • Guided Sound and Story Share that meets the specific goals of your company, institution, association, conferences, and group gathering
  • An opportunity for attendees to cultivate greater cultural competency and respect is essential for highly engaged teams.
  • Experiential activities help the audience to develop a community for deeper connection, collaboration, and networking.

“[Traciana’ workshop] was really beautiful, I didn’t think that there would be so much open sharing in the room. I wish I could bring moments like this into the bigger company. It was great to see people asking questions, being vulnerable, and sharing insights, as well as providing guidance to each other without fear. Making moments like this of welcoming communities at a larger scale is exactly what I want to do.” Jennifer McKaig, Social Impact Lead,  Etsy “

“Traciana Graves’ Fearless Listening ™ Methodologies and Say Something Beautiful initiative are incredible and doing powerful work [because] I can’t say enough about how important it is to end the muting of people and shutting down people’s vitality, confidence and dreams. We so deeply need to live in a different type of world where people live in vulnerability, openness, and kindness. I am just so proud that One Billion Rising joined with Traciana’s  Fearless Listening ™ and Say Something Beautiful to create initiatives that do this work.” – V (formerly Eve Ensler), Author of The Vagina Monologues and Creator of One Billion Rising, and Founder of The City of Joy
