"The Ignite Your Passion Guide"
 How To Get Unstuck & Live Your Dreams



Tonya Telesco is a dynamic speaker and author dedicated to helping individuals AWAKEN to their extraordinary value and make an IMPACT on the world they are called to influence.

As a leadership, communication and human behavior expert and on Teaching Faculty for the Global John Maxwell Team, she is passionate about breaking the chains of mediocrity to harness limitless potential. 

She believes a meaningful life springs forth when there is an alignment between who you are and the work you do. When you know your strengths, what brings you alive and package it with serving others, a transformational shift takes place that can change any person or culture. This convergence leads to internal motivation and world class results. That’s true leadership; it’s action that must be lived out authentically through every person.

Each presentation is a powerful learning experience with compelling research, engaging stories, and actionable strategies resulting in short term wins and long term impact. 


Hi there!

It’s an honor to have you visit.

Let’s make your next event unforgettable by empowering your audience to lead their lives and relationships, not accept them. Life is too short to play small!


I believe EVERY person has that superpower that can't be taught but it must first be found. But once we identify it, understand how we're wired and take strategic action, we become unstoppable agents of change. We are more fulfilled, more productive and build deeper connections. Let’s chat!
