Overview

In the tradition of the bestselling book The One Minute Manager, authors Ken Blanchard and S. Truett Cathy, entrepreneur and founder of Chic-fil-A restaurants, present The Generosity Factor™---a parable that demonstrates the virtues of generosity.
It’s the story of a meeting between the Broker---a young man on his way up the corporate ladder who has the illusion of success, yet deep inside feels insignificant---and the Executive---the CEO of a very large and successful company who claims the greatest joy in his life is his ability to give to others.
Thinking he might get a competitive edge by meeting with the Executive, the Broker’s worldview is turned upside down as he talks to the Executive and hears the principles that form his life. He calls it The Generosity Factor™---a way to give time, talent, treasure, and touch to those in need.
Providing a unique twist on what it means to thrive in business, at home, and in life, this story will forever change your definition of success.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
If greed is good, generosity is ten times better. That's the heartening message of this book, a modern parable by Ken Blanchard, the author of The One-Minute Manager, and Eat More Chikin, Inspire More People author S. Truett Cathy.
Publishers Weekly
Motivational writer Ken Blanchard teams up with Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy for The Generosity Factor: The Power in Holding Things with Open Hands, a contemporary allegory about the importance of giving. While the characters in this little parable (the selfish broker, his contented but poor chauffeur and the generous CEO who teaches the broker to help others) are more stereotypical than archetypal, the values presented are first-rate. Through the story, the broker comes to learn about the generosity factor, which includes a consecration of money but also more significantly in our affluent but over-busy culture the gift of one' s time. (Aug.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
