Ever heard questions like these?

“Why don’t I ever get a break?”
“When will someone solve the problem?”
“Who dropped the ball?”

If so, then QBQ! The Question Behind the Question is needed! QBQ! —the “how to” of personal accountability—helps people turn these questions into ones of ownership and responsibility. QBQs such as, “What can I do to contribute?” and “How can I make a difference?” help individuals practice personal accountability. Questions like these eliminate the common yet dangerous traps of complaining, victim-thinking, procrastination, and blame. When this occurs, productivity, teamwork, morale, creativity, learning, communication, and problem-solving are enhanced. Created by John G. Miller, author and keynote speaker, QBQ! is a practical tool that changes lives. Learn more at www.QBQ.com.
