I’m honored to be joined today by best-selling author, John G. Miller! John is the author of QBQ – The Question Behind the Question: Practicing Personal Accountability in Work and in Life. He joins us today to share some stories from his journey as well as offer some introduction to his proven techniques from the book. You’ll hear John talk about personal accountability, and the importance of the boss being involved in training. He also outlines the difference between people management and leadership.
I’ve invited John to the ManagerMirror because a past supervisor gave me his book “QBQ” and I have personally put his concepts into practice with my own staff. The book left a big impact on me and on more than one occasion, I’ve bought copies for my whole sales team!
