In this #jammingwithjason #internalauditpodcast episode I speak with Danny Goldberg about some of the people centric skills each internal auditor must have. As a profession we often focus primarily on our technical skills, but soft skills is what will get you to the director or CAE level.
We discuss topics like: conflict resolution, body language, emotional intelligence, empathy, using appropriate mode of communication, etc... what may not seem like #internalaudit qualities, but things we have to develop to succeed in our career.

A second edition of People-Centric Skills is due out in 2020. This is not an update, per se but can be thought of as a second book in a series. Listen to the episode and you'll see what I mean.
