After a 24 year career with the FBI, I wrote, Walking the Corporate Beat: Police School for Business People.   Through law enforcement experiences, I highlight how various decision making processes lead to success or failure. 

The book is a quick and fun read, interspersed with humorous stories of arrests, undercover operations and the cop on the beat.

I am interested in speaking with your organization.  Follows is the description found on the book:

Walking the Corporate Beat: Police School for Business People is retired FBI Special Agent in Charge and businessman Michael Tabman’s gift to all executives and business professionals seeking new and effective ways to recognize and prevent problems. Readers will be intrigued by parallels between police work and business, and how basic law enforcement concepts resolve management problems.

Whether the focus is managing risk or team building, defining company objectives or discussing ethics, the parallels are compelling. Tabman explains the similarities with candid descriptions and dramatic, and often humorous, vignettes from his days on the force. In an approach that captivates the reader, he juxtaposes such challenges of law enforcement and business as multitasking, conferences, relationships, and strategizing. The concept that rushing into a melee without stopping to think is as dangerous in police work as it is in business is one example of how this book will open new and energizing doors.
