Courage and Character led now-suspended FBI Special Agent Steve Friend to become latest FBI Whistleblower, Learn His “Why” on The Mentors Radio
In this episode, The Mentors Radio host Tom Loarie talks with UND grad and suspended FBI Special Agent Steve Friend, a respected 12-year veteran of the FBI and a SWAT team member. But this interview is not about the details of Steve's recent bombshell whistleblowing. This interview is about Steve's career, his journey, his character, his compass and anchor points...his "why"... The challenge he faced could easily apply to anyone, in any position, at any time. An excellent reminder that in work and in life—and in finding happiness and peace of soul—character counts! What would you do if the company leadership where you worked asked you—expected you—to do something unethical, something that went against clearly stated corporate principles, or against an oath you took (perhaps as a medical doctor, nurse or law enforcement officer, or in any kind of business position)? the This same question was faced by leadership and higher-level employees at the ENRON company many years ago. The same question was faced by a young Naval Officer at sea when the highest ranking commander on that ship refused to respond to an SOS call the young officer had received, even though their ship was the closest one to the cry for help plea. In each of these examples, some people stood up, respectfully, and endured consequences until the truth won out. At some point, we each have to answer this question in one way or another... many times during our lives. Steve Friend gives us an inside look at his "why."
