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.

The HEART acronym toward the end is pretty cool

I recommend this book to anyone searching for ways to understand how faith and finances can coexist. It is not an either/or proposition. A successful business person can be God fearing and focused on serving others with a generous heart without sacrificing company results including top line (revenue) and bottom line (profits) if their motivations are pure. The storyteller did an outstanding job narrating this audiobook. I was thoroughly engaged and finished it in two days.

Fantastic! A must listen!

Truly an inspiring fable highlighting two perspectives on generosity. The Executive's teaching really embodied what true mentoring is all about. Enjoy it.

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.

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.
