Personal Accountability and the QBQ!™

Have you heard questions like these? "Why do we have to go through all this change?" "When is someone going to train me?" "Who dropped the ball?" "When are we going to find good people?" "Why can't they communicate better?" "When is that department going to do its job right?" If so, then John G. Miller's message of Personal Accountability and the QBQ! is right for your organization or event. Based on the best-selling QBQ! book, people at every organizational level have found this "Fast, Frank, and Fun" presentation life-changing. Participants will discover how to practice personal accountability by eliminating blame, complaining, and procrastination by asking The Question Behind the Question. Using his gifts of story-telling and humor, John delivers a message that is practical and applicable to all areas of life.

QBQ!: Achieving Excellence by Practicing Personal Accountability

Founded on John's book, Flipping the Switch... Unleash the Power of Personal Accountability, this presentation enables participants to use the practical tool called "QBQ!" to bring five "Advantage Principles" to life. These core ideas are: Learning, Ownership, Creativity, Service, and Trust. Whether teaching the Roadblocks to Learning, the Five Trust-Builders, or how to eliminate The Ultimate Excuse, John will give the audience tools to "flip the switch" at work and at home. Knowing QBQ! is not a prerequisite to experience this presentation.

Be Outstanding!

John's book, Outstanding! ... 47 Ways to Make Your Organization Exceptional, is a result of years of observing what works-and what doesn't. In it, he provides a roadmap for people and organizations to become exceptional. "Outstanding" means superior, striking, clearly noticeable - to stand out. People everywhere want to buy from, sell to, invest in, volunteer at, and work for outstanding organizations. Filled with practical ideas that can-and should-be used by individuals and teams from the boardroom to the stockroom, John's presentation will help your people and organization become outstanding!
