D. A. Spence’s The Right Staff is a short but informative book that every businessperson out there will find useful. Through a series of examples, tips, and tests, Spence leads entrepreneurs through what is at times the most difficult aspect of their job: the choice of the right employee…..

I liked the practical purpose of this book, and I think it achieves this well. The tone is engaging, and some funny cartoons clarify the topic and make you smile. I recommend The Right Staff to every

The Story Behind the Book.

After years of suffering staff hazels that made being in business a living nightmare, I realise that things had to change or I would become part of the statistics of people having a heart attack than face Monday Morning with my staff. I enlisted organisational psychologist, human resource managers, went to seminars and events, read books and articles, but nothing was working for me the headache of having staff was relentless.


This headache all changed when I throw out all the rules and guides on how to be a great boss and changed my approach and became the Worst Boss Ever. I decided that it was all about my business and me and if staff didn’t like how I ruled then, they could be moved on as I was overturning myself into everything they wanted me to be so they were motivated productive and honest workers doing the job they were hired to do. The Result was taking a failing business to an award-winning successful company with a fantastic staff that I loved and no more headaches.
