Independence: I Do Not Think That Word Means What You Think It Means

Independence: I Do Not Think That Word Means What You Think It Means

February 25, 2020

#Independence is a term may in #internalaudit like to push the boundaries on, but when we do we can come off as arrogant or self-righteous to others in the organization. In this week's #jammingwithjason #internalaudit podcast I discuss the difference between independence and objectivity, why objectivity is more important than independence, and you are not really as independent as you may think.

As with all episodes, you will also walk away with some practical tips you can start using today.

This week's episode is brought to you by the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) Forum.

If you are a CAE that wants to join a community of like-minded CAEs where you can have frank discussions about the challenges and opportunities of being a Chief Audit Executive (CAE), while getting practical advice to increase your executive presence, influence and value as a trusted advisor to your organization, check out what they have to offer and book your no-obligation call to see if it's right for you: https://jasonmefford.mykajabi.com/caeforum

People Centric Skills with Danny Goldberg

People Centric Skills with Danny Goldberg

February 18, 2020

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.

Danny Goldberg is the Founder of GoldSRD (www.goldsrd.com), a leading provider of Staff Augmentation, Executive Recruiting and Professional Development services. He is a well-known speaker on internal auditing and People-Centric Skills. Danny co-authored People-Centric Skills: Communication and Interpersonal Skills for Internal Auditors, via Wiley Publications.

This is the first book published specifically to address the wide-ranging topic of communication skills for internal auditors. It has been offered through the IIA and ISACA bookstores since July 2015. You can also find it on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/People-Centric-Skills-Interpersonal-Communication-Professionals/dp/1118850815/

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. Contact Danny for a personalized copy of the new book when it's released hot off the presses (dgoldberg@goldsrd.com).

ESRM affects the broadest spectrum of organization, from government, corporations and NGOs, to schools and universities, to entertainment and leisure, casinos and hotels, from oil & gas giants to technology companies and multinationals.

With over 11 years as a US Army green beret, education in neuroscience, big data technology, and international relations. Toby possesses a unique blend of experience and education.
