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.
Programs I'm passionate & proud to be involved in
