Lime Thinks Different
You don't want a consultant to parrot back to you what you already know and believe. The magic is in divergent thinking and, sometimes, in constructive conflict. We believe we have an obligation to our clients to call it as we see it, no matter how tough the message. We are direct, honest, solutions-focused partners. You may not always agree with us, but you will always be armed with the full range of viewpoints to make decisions.
Culture is one of the most talked-about yet least understood aspects of organizational performance. Lime knows culture. We see the layers of your organization beneath the surface. The forces and dynamics that are driving (or blocking) performance that most leaders can't see. We describe it, identify key distinctions and power boundaries, and put leaders in the position to make informed choices.
Mindsets drive the decisions and actions that ultimately shape results. You can't get new and better results with the same old thinking. While changing boxes and lines and reinforcing performance structures, will have some effect, sustained improvement requires shifting how leaders think. We are experts at understanding and shifting mindsets - change from the inside out - to produce remarkable results.
We believe most leadership teams try to do too much. They allow their fear of saying "no", or of making bold decisions to corral them into spreading their attention thin. The result is - unremarkable results! Lime works just as hard at NOT doing the wrong things as we do at taking action on the right things. We say "No"... and help our leaders do the same in the right moments.
Organizations are living, interdependent systems. They evolve in ways that are not always expected, nor in line with management expectations. Lime architects and helps deliver large-scale change by leveraging our system expertise. We test, learn, iterate and monitor so that as the change progresses we can continue to adapt the approach as needed to meet the evolution of the organizational system.
Information overload depresses performance rather than enhancing it. Lime's approach to data is to get as much as we need, no more and no less, to start driving change in the right direction. We marry quantitative analytics with nuanced qualitative insights. We are impatient. We push leaders to move a little before they are ready, rather than a little after. We make some mistakes but they are less than the mistake of insufficient momentum.
