Jeff wrote the book on the topic. Literally. He’s author of the bestselling book Recruit Rockstars.

Within the pages of this strategy-packed book, Jeff reveals the 10 key steps that smart companies need to recruit & retain top talent for effortless scale, even when unemployment is at a record-low.

Jeff’s Obsession with Finding A-Players: The Beginning

It all started when Jeff was 13 years old and launched his first company, Compu-Labels, with the help of his TRS-80 computer.

Early on, Jeff realized that even if your product is great, your competition will overtake you if you don’t have the best players on your team.

Fast forward to when he graduated from Wharton and Kellogg to work for two renowned executive search firms, Heidrick & Struggles and Spencer Stuart.

Jeff quickly spotted what set top-performers apart from those who struggled & failed … it was a Rockstar DNA.

This insight was his Eureka moment.

He realized what separated the winners from the losers.

But, it took many more hires (and mis-hires) before he could build a high-powered process to recruit A-Players.

He made mistakes.

He dissected every interview.

He studied predictive techniques.

He identified (and plugged) gaps in recruiting.

He built a remarkably simple, yet astonishingly powerful, system for companies to scale past their competition with an unbeatable team of A-Players.
