About Lorraine

My name is Lorraine Bossė-Smith, Founder of the FIT Leader Formula, and I have been in the talent management and leadership development business for over 20 years. I transform lives through consulting and coaching, speaking and training, and writing. Back in my corporate America days, I broke records for reaching the management level in a male-dominated industry, but I paid the price. Working 80 hours a week and an abusive relationship brought me to my knees, and my mother’s death was the straw that broke the camel’s back. In 1996 I lost just about everything and almost didn’t live to tell about it. My life was completely out of control, and I knew I had to find a better way.


My journey of learning and discovering ways to lessen stress and create a healthier life became my business and is still my passion today: to improve the quality of your life.

Helping people improve their lives

Whether I am speaking, training, coaching, consulting, or authoring books, I help people succeed both professionally and personally. We can no longer separate them. I believe what happens at work comes home, and our personal stress impacts our ability to perform at our best. The notion of work/life balance seems impossible to some, but it IS possible when we clearly define what matters most to us and how we want OUR life to look like.

Founder of the FIT Leader Formula transforming lives

That’s where I come in. My principles of FIT Leadership not only help you lead and succeed professionally, but they also encourage and motivate you toward a healthier, more balanced life personally. If we are truly going to achieve great things, we must be mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually healthy.

These aren’t just pie in the sky concepts for me. I have lived them out, beating two incurable diseases. Work with me, and you will quickly discover that I genuinely care about you. Your entire life matters, and I will help you be FIT to lead and succeed!

Burnout not only costs you, but it will inevitably hurt your company’s bottom line. We cannot serve and give our customers our best when we have nothing to give. Work/Life balance isn’t just a nice notion; it is paramount to a healthy bottom line.

Whether you require a PIP or leadership development or are interested in a departmental training or company-wide workshop, I will partner with you to achieve success.
