Driving Results, a consulting group for the industry recently held an owners group meeting in San Diego. Fourteen members of the Wheels in Motion group fanned out across downtown San Diego to perform random acts of kindness upon the citizens of San
The group randomly showed up at a soup house, washed dishes and worked the food line. They came upon a lady who had locked herself out of her car and they helped her unlock it. They paid for a young woman’s groceries when her debit card declined as she and her young son purchased groceries. The group handed out flowers to people they passed as well as Oreo cookies, bottles of water and fresh fruit from the hotel lobby where the group stayed.
The random acts of kindness were part of a team building exercise intended to measure leadership, use of resources, creative thinking and cash management as each team was given cash and expected to achieve maximum value with cash provided. Each interaction was documented in a video and presented later in a class setting. The real winners were the people of San Diego who received a kind gesture from total strangers from the limousine industry.
