Hi, I'm Lonnie Mayne.

When I was just a kid, I remember hearing the cheers for my pro-wrestling dad rise from the stands. But every time he stepped out of the ring, he’d shake off his Moondog Mayne persona to connect with his fans on a human level. That has always stuck with me.

After he passed away, I spent my summers traveling with my uncle who was a CEO “turnaround guy” and my personal business mentor. I sat in meetings with him and watched him get the best out of others by treating them like people first and employees or customers second.

Over the last few decades, I’ve been a technology executive and before that an executive navigating mergers and acquisitions. During the most challenging times, I have often asked myself: “How can I turn this noise down and develop the full potential of our people and our organization?”

I knew there had to be a more respectful way to have tough conversations, handle company changes, and build team trust and resilience. A more inspired way to get others showing up every day, feeling excited to get to work. A more personalized way to serve our customers and stand out from our competitors...

And I also knew where these changes would have to start: Not with the company, but with the leaders building and inspiring our company culture.

To answer all these tough questions, I created a simple, life-changing, and value-driven performance model. It’s called Red Shoes Living.

To answer all these tough questions, I created a simple, life-changing, and value-driven performance model. It’s called Red Shoes Living.

One of the benefits of Red Shoes Living is how it becomes for everyone who lives it.

Here’s how it shows up for me:
Empowers me to live a more positive and adventurous life, from competing in spartan events in Iceland, to backcountry skiing in the Wasatch mountains. To put myself out there and to go for the things that matter most to me. To live, dream and do!
Reminds me to treat everyone with respect and kindness. To listen to them, to be aware of them, and to genuinely show interest in their story. To demonstrate that they matter, that I see them.
Helps me to give the best version of myself, so I get the best version out of others.
Humbles me so I can admit when I am wrong. I am human, and sometimes I don’t show up as the best version of myself. Red Shoes Living brings me back in an instant.
Inspires me to spread the message that people matter by delivering anti-bullying and suicide awareness talks to youth.
Shapes how I see the world and its beauty, and serves as a reminder to pause and look up and to look out at life.
It quiets the negative noise of the world today and allows me to see the good.
Holds me accountable to a higher standard in the work I do and how I live.
Helps me create Red Shoes experiences for everyone I come in contact with, from the waiter to the senior executive.
Makes me a better Dad and a better human being. Period.

Programs I'm passionate & proud to be involved in

Delivering anti-bullying and suicide awareness talks to youth.

I am passionate about the sharing the Red Shoes Living message to our youth: that all people matter. All of us have a story and when we seek to understand each other's stories we can connect in meaningful and respectful ways. This message has become powerful to our youth and adults alike.

“The British Citizen Awards recognise individuals for their selflessness and positive impact on society: the very people that personify the Red Shoes Living philosophy.

When Lonnie presents his passionate delivery of what Red Shoes Living means, he deftly aligns it with our medallists’ own Blue Ribbon on their medal, verbalising eloquently what their achievement means in the wider world. Lonnie’s message is one that we never tire of hearing.”
