In a time when the integrity of our leaders in government, business, law enforcement, even our religious institutions is being questioned with unprecedented frequency, it’s never been more urgent that we understand the principles of value-based performance. 

As the FBI’s former head of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi (a 1985 graduate of Fairfield University) had a unique opportunity to study patterns of conduct among high-achieving individuals, as well as the errors made by unethical persons. He came to understand that maintaining a “code of excellence” was the key to success in any field. Drawing on his distinguished career, Figliuzzi reveals how the Bureau achieves its extraordinary track-record of excellence in THE FBI WAY: Inside the Bureau’s Code of Excellence  — from the training of new recruits to the rigorous maintenance of standards up and down the organization. Unafraid to identify FBI execs who erred —including James Comey and Peter Strzok—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. Figliuzzi has condensed the Bureau’s process of preserving and protecting its protocols into what he calls “The Seven C’s”: Code, Conservancy, Clarity, Consequences, Compassion, Credibility, and Consistency. 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.
