Last month, I began a series where I divulge the change lessons I’ve experienced in the back seat of a taxicab through my travels as a consultant.
A cabbie told me this story: Late on a busy Saturday, a general dispatch call came over the radio, asking anyone in a certain area of town to please pick up a pregnant woman and get her to the nearest hospital. The cabbie was on the other side of town. Picking up and dropping of a passenger, they neared the location. The dispatcher was still pleading for someone to pick up the woman.
Naïve me, of course I ask, “Why wouldn’t anyone go pick her up?”
