Jamming with Jason Mefford
New Year’s Resolutions for 2020

New Year’s Resolutions for 2020

December 31, 2019

The fact is, fewer than 90-95% of people actually follow through with and accomplish their new year's resolutions. The reason: they don't do the things necessary to create new habits, or break old habits.

In this episode of #jammingwithjason #internalauditpodcast I dive into 5 things you can do this year to make sure you accomplish more in 2020 and make it an amazing year.

You'll hear about:
- having compassion for yourself if you didn't accomplish everything in 2019 you'd hoped for,
- not just setting goals (resolutions), but creating habits,
- breaking down your annual goals into 90-day goals,
- creating a daily routine for reaching your 90-day goals, and
- realizing our habits determine who we are.

The more we work on developing the right habits, the more likely we will accomplish our bigger goals.

The book referred to in this episode: The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, by Charles Duhigg, is a great ready for understanding and developing great habits.

Jamming with Jason is the #1 #internalauditpodcast in the world has interviews and discussions (jam sessions) relevant to Chief Audit Executives and professionals in #internalaudit, risk management, and compliance.

Why Don’t Auditors Find More Fraud? with Aaron Denbo

Why Don’t Auditors Find More Fraud? with Aaron Denbo

December 24, 2019

The ACFE reports that about 40% of frauds are uncovered from tips to a whistleblower hotline, while internal audit only uncovers about 15% of frauds. While detecting fraud is not internal audit's primary purpose, one is still left to wonder why internal audit doesn't find more fraud, especially since one of the first questions from management is "why didn't audit find this?"

Jason Mefford is joined by Aaron Denbo to discuss how internal audit can change a few simple things to help increase their ability to find and detect fraud. This is a previous recording of a webinar Aaron did with Jason for cRisk Academy.

Lessons from a Chief Audit Executive (CAE) with Larry Harrington

Lessons from a Chief Audit Executive (CAE) with Larry Harrington

December 17, 2019

In this week's episode I speak with Larry Harrington about lessons he learned from being a CAE. We discuss various topics including: personal branding and your career development plan, benefits of being in roles outside of internal audit, developing and maintaining strong relationships with management, getting a seat at the table, and investing in yourself. So much in this episode.

In fact, there is so much in this episode you will probably want to listen more than once.

Larry Harrington served as the global chairman of The IIA, and retired as the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) for Raytheon Company, which specializes in defense, civil government, and cybersecurity markets throughout the world. Prior to joining Raytheon in 2004, he led the internal audit function for several Fortune 100 companies, where he also served in other areas, including finance, human resources, and operations.

In "retirement" Larry speaks, coaches, mentors and consults with internal auditors all over the world, and continues to be a strong and passionate voice for the internal audit profession. You can reach out to him at: Harringtonlj55@gmail.com or https://www.linkedin.com/in/larry-harrington-574634/

For his term as The IIA’s global chairman, Larry chose the theme, “Invest in Yourself.” He urges internal auditors to enhance their value by undertaking professional
development opportunities. From reading topical and timely material, to adding professional certifications, to attending conferences and workshops in internal auditing and on the business functions they audit, internal auditors can improve their own professional skills and opportunities and better serve their organizations and stakeholders.

Lessons from a CAE with Steve Goepfert

Lessons from a CAE with Steve Goepfert

December 10, 2019

In this week's episode I speak with Steve Goepfert about lessons he learned from being a CAE. We discuss various topics including the difference between being a Chief Auditor, and being a Chief Audit Executive; what it really takes to be a CAE; how to provide those moments of head snap (you'll have to listen to learn more); how to prove and communicate the value internal audit provides; and not getting so engrained in the mechanics that we don't focus on the big picture.

Steve Goepfert was the Vice President - Internal Audit (Chief Auditor) for United Airlines in Chicago, Illinois. He assumed the role after the merger of United and Continental. He had previously been Chief Auditor at Continental Airlines for 21 years.

He was the 2006-2007 Chairman of the Board for the Institute of Internal Auditors, Inc. (IIA). At the Global level, Steve served on the IIA's Executive Committee for 6 years (2003-09) and on the IIA Board for 7 years. He previously served as Senior Vice Chairman and Vice Chairman – Professional Services and is a past President of the Houston Chapter (1999-2000), and served on its Board for 17 years. In 2012, Steve was inducted into the inaugural class of the IIA's American Hall of Distinguished Audit Practitioners. He was recognized in 2013 with the Victor Brink award for distinguished service to the IIA.

He is now enjoying retirement in Tennessee. I am very grateful to have one of the legends in the internal audit profession on the show.

December 3, 2019

In this week's episode I speak with Imran Zia about lessons he learned from being a CAE. We discuss how management wants to see internal audit as a partner and trusted advisor. How integrity, courage, likability and trust help you get to that status. We also discuss how to become the CEO of your own career development and that by spending time learning you business and industry is one of the biggest things you can do to earn the trust of management.
