In the tradition of the mega-bestseller, The One Minute Manager, author Ken Blanchard and fast-food entrepreneur S. Truett Cathy (Chic-Fil-A) create a parable that demonstrates the virtues of generosity. In this very readable and entertaining account, a young executive on his way up the corporate ladder seeks a competitive edge by getting an appointment with the CEO of a very large and successful company. The advice he gets and the relationship that develops provide a pleasant surprise and unique twist on what it means to truly succeed, be it in business, at home, or in life.

Motivational writer Ken Blanchard teams up with Chick-fil-Afounder S. Truett Cathy for The Generosity Factor: The Power inHolding Things with Open Hands, a contemporary allegory about theimportance of giving. While the characters in this little parable (theselfish broker, his contented but poor chauffeur and the generous CEOwho teaches the broker to help others) are more stereotypical thanarchetypal, the values presented are first-rate. Through the story,the broker comes to learn about the generosity factor, which includesa consecration of money, but also, more significantly in our affluentbut over-busy culture, the gift of one's time.
