Personal Accountability and the QBQ!
Based on the best-selling QBQ! book, people at every organizational level have found John’s “Fast, Frank and Fun” presentation life-changing.

Using his gift of story-telling and humor, John delivers a message that is practical and applicable to all areas of life.
Flipping the Switch… Living the QBQ!
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.
John’s book, Outstanding!… 47 Ways to Make Your Organization Exceptional, is a result of years of observing what works – and what doesn’t. Outstanding! provides a road map 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!
No Excuses Parenting!
John and Karen Miller – parents of seven children – wrote Parenting the QBQ Way because moms and dads asked for it! Personal accountability begins at home with responsible parenting. When parents practice QBQ! and eliminate blame, complaining, victim thinking, and procrastination from their parenting, everybody wins! Raising outstanding children isn’t easy, but it can be done!
Powerful stuff! You have done a great job delivering this message. I'm working to be diligent in practicing the ideas you shared and eliminate Victim Thinking, Procrastination, and - my worst enemy - Blame!
