I am a fan of movies and as the calendar advances, I transition from the Thanksgiving classic "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" with John Candy and Steve Martin to another traditional classic, "A Christmas Carol." The iconic author Charles Dickens published his original "A Christmas Carol" in 1843 and it has remained popular ever since never going out of print. Every time I read the story or watch it play out on stage or in a movie, I am reminded of how powerful the trait generosity is. Indeed, the overall impact of the book created what was deemed the “Carol Philosophy” and had a positive impact on philanthropic giving culture worldwide.

Servant leaders give much to their followers but the symbiotic relationship exists with leaders needing much from their followers including their trust. Leaders would do well to give thanks for their follower’s contributions.
