Former FBI Assistant Director of Counterintelligence discusses The FBI Way

Former FBI Assistant Director of Counterintelligence discusses The FBI Way

Zoom

January 19, 2021, 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. ET

Join us for an evening with former FBI Assistant Director of Counterintelligence and weekly national television commentator Frank Figliuzzi as he discusses his new book, The FBI Way. In it, he reveals the Bureau’s field-tested playbook for unlocking individual and organizational excellence, illustrated through dramatic stories from his own storied career. Part pulse-pounding memoir, part practical playbook for excellence, The FBI Way shows readers how to apply the lessons he’s learned to their own lives: in business, management, and personal development. This virtual event is free and open to the public, but you must register on Eventbrite here to receive the link to the Zoom webinar. If you’d like to purchase a copy of the book, we encourage you to buy from A Capella Books, our partners for this event, here. Frank Figliuzzi held senior FBI leadership positions in major American cities including Atlanta and was appointed the FBI’s Chief Inspector by Former Director Robert Mueller. Frank is most noted for his compelling television commentary regarding the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign. Figliuzzi’s role in the FBI gave him a unique opportunity to study patterns of conduct among high-achieving, ethical individuals and draw conclusions about why, when and how good people sometimes do bad things. Frank was the ”Keeper of the Code,” appointed the FBI’s Chief Inspector by then-Director Robert Mueller. Charged with overseeing sensitive internal inquiries, shooting reviews, and performance audits, he ensured each employee met the Bureau’s exacting standards of performance, integrity, and conduct. Now, drawing on his distinguished career, Figliuzzi reveals how the Bureau achieves its extraordinary standard of excellence—from the training of new recruits in ”The FBI Way” to the Bureau’s rigorous maintenance of its standards up and down the organization. Unafraid to identify FBI execs who erred, he cites them as the exceptions that prove the rule. All good codes of conduct have one common trait: they reflect the core values of an organization. Individuals, companies, schools, teams, or any group seeking to codify their rules to live by must first establish core values. Figliuzzi has condensed the Bureau’s process of preserving and protecting its core values into what he calls “The Seven C’s.” If you can adapt the concepts of Code, Conservancy, Clarity, Consequences, Compassion, Credibility, and Consistency, you can instill and preserve your values against all threats, internal and external. This is how the FBI does it.
