Episode 7 – Inside the FBI’s Code of Excellence with Frank Figliuzzi

By Brian Hurlburt, Founder and Host, Magnifying Excellence Podcast.

It’s time for another journey of Excellence, where our guests talk exclusively and candidly about their journeys of Excellence like never before. Our episodes are not a glorification of excellence, but an examination of the all-encompassing path of Excellence.

This episode features Frank Figliuzzi, a best-selling author and former FBI assistant director of counter intelligence. He gives us insights into the writing of his book, The FBI Way – Inside the Bureau’s Code of Excellence, and goes into gritty details about the book and his FBI experiences.

The episode is available here or anywhere you find your podcasts.

He also shares the 7 c’s from the book, and why he believes Excellence is a path. He also reveals his personal definition of Excellence in addition to the FBI’s definition.

All that and much more, so we hope you enjoy and are inspired by this episode with Frank Figliuzzi.

Episode Soundbite – Figliuzzi says Excellence is much more than performance based

Besides 25 years of service with the FBI—where he led high-level and delicate espionage operations and other extremely vital departments—education is a core value for Figliuzzi. He earned a Juris Doctorate cum laude from the University of Connecticut School of Law, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature from Fairfield University. He has also completed certificate programs at the Harvard University National Security Program for Senior Executives in Government at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, and at Northwestern University’s executive course on Leading Strategic Change at the Kellogg School of Management.

Now, he appears on television and speaks on a wide variety of issues, with Excellence and strong core values always front and center. He also is at the ready to share the 7 c’s from his book that can help all of us on what he calls our “paths to Excellence” … those 7 cs are: code, conservancy, clarity, consequences, compassion, credibility, and consistency.
