Denver — Industry consultants Driving Results recently held a meeting for their Wheels in Motion owners group in Denver. Fourteen members group fanned out across downtown Denver to perform random acts of kindness upon the citizens of the city.

The group randomly showed up at a soup house, washed dishes, and worked the food line. Later, they came upon a lady who had locked herself out of her car and they helped her unlock it, and then paid for a young woman’s groceries when her debit card was declined while 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 the money. Each interaction was documented in a video and presented later in a class setting. The real winners were the people of Denver who received a kind gesture from total strangers in the limousine industry.

Wheels in Motion meets four times a year in different cities for the purpose of learning, round table discussions, goal setting for the next quarter, and sharing creative ideas about problems, trends, and situations in the industry. The group also entered into a weight loss challenge and each member bet $100 they could lose the most weight by November. Members of the group did a weigh in during a site visit at Towne & Country Limousine of Denver and will be weighed in Orlando when the group meets again. The weight loss winner will get $1000 for their effort.
