Frank Figliuzzi served as a special agent with the FBI for twenty-five years, rising to become Assistant Director, charged with leading the Bureau’s famed Counterintelligence Division. Figliuzzi held senior FBI leadership positions in major American cities, and was appointed the FBI’s Chief Inspector to oversee sensitive internal inquiries. He is a graduate of Fairfield University and UConn School of Law. Today, he is a national security analyst for NBC and MSNBC, and a sought-after speaker and instructor on leadership and risk management.
At the FBI, Figliuzzi 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.
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. Part pulse-pounding memoir, part practical playbook for excellence, The FBI Way shows readers how to apply the lessons Figliuzzi has learned to their own lives: in business, management, and personal development.
