Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of the best-selling 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.

Como complacer a Dios

Me sorprendio cuando empece a entender la historia basada en principios de Dios. Como el mismo narrador lo menciona, es complicado creer que existen personas que en realidad lo aplican en su vida. Hay mucho que reflexionar.

Great book

Gets you thinking about what's after success. I've been living with my head down for a while, trying to improve and succeed and this book got me thinking about what's really important in life. Religious or not, i think this book will be refreshing to anyone that loses sight of the goalposts once in a while.

A must read!

Just as Jesus taught us that it is more bless to give than to receive, this book is certainly a timely reminder of the words of Jesus and self reflection for me. I must use the gifts God has blessed me with to positively impact the life of others. The narrator drew me in.
