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 an unabridged audio download of 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. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy Spencer | 8/24/2012

    " Fave quote: The Executive: "Some people think of generosity as an event. They get behind some cause and participate in an annual fund drive. When their big splash is over, it's back to business as usual. But generosity is an attitude. It has to be cultivated daily." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Cato | 8/13/2012

    " It's a "fiction" book that's very much describing Truett Cathey's (founder of Chick-fil-A) giving philosophy, which is Biblically rooted in what Jesus calls us to do...help the poor and the needy. Reminded me a lot of "The Ultimate Gift" by Jim Stovall, but better. "
