Professor Spillane teaches and writes on philosophy and psychology and their application to management. He examines theories of personality, motivation, managerial values, group dynamics, occupational stress and counseling and their relevance for, and application to management. He is also interested in the history of Western ideas, demonstrating that the field of management, which is of recent origin, necessarily draws on a wide range of ancient wisdom.

He practiced psychotherapy in Sydney for 25 years, working especially on occupational stress, RSI and ADHD.
