FBI Retired Signature Directories

Business Skills

Business Skills ConsultingRetiring from the FBI and pursuing a second career, some agents try to secure a position with a private company or corporation, while others—born with an entrepreneurial spirit—elect to start a new business—both looking for success. Irrespective of a career choice, besides an obvious talent for conducting investigations, these agents have also learned to develop important organizational and time management skills which when combined with goal setting dexterity are equally applicable business skills.  Needing to have a vision and stay organized, prioritize tasks and make difficult decisions, and/or construct an argument voicing an opinion—talents generally associated with good business skills—have equal application in law enforcement. Whether you call these competences important business skills or proficiencies learned conducting criminal investigations is not important. But what is important is developing and maintaining the skills for use in any career choice.

Delegating tasks, speaking in public, networking—building strong relationships—are “not” only important business skills, but applicable skills investigators need to solve complicated fraud schemes, conduct international money laundering investigations and/or combat terrorism.  Hence, it’s not surprising, looking for an executive to help run an organization, members in the business community will often solicit someone in law enforcement to join their team because of their obvious business skills.

Like any business professional running an effective organization, successful investigators are passionate individuals who learn to adapt and be flexible conducting investigations, are respectful and considerate establishing relationships and someone who uses innovation and technology when possible solving crimes.  Whether you call their relevant skills law enforcement positioned or business skills is immaterial.

In much the same way, in high-profile investigations involving large amounts of money and/or numerous suspects, senior investigators and squad leaders are taught to surround themselves with diverse/talented individuals creating the best chance to bring any investigation to a successful early conclusion.  Managing personnel, agents are taught to value the contributions made by peers and associates and to be civil and polite, personal skills that have application “not” only in law enforcement, but the private sector as well—making them equally important good business skills.
