Community and Coaching

May 26, 2020

In order to really learn we need knowledge, skills, abilities and experience. Abilities come from taking knowledge and skills we acquire and through reflection and application figuring out how to apply them to our situation and circumstance for our benefit. We then fully learn through repetition and experience actually doing those things.

In this #jammingwithjason #internalauditpodcast episode I dig into why this is so important and how we do this.

Listen in at: http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/

I've read thousands of books in my life, but the knowledge does no good if I stop with reading the book (knowledge). The great Bruce Lee said, “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.”

The fastest way to transform knowledge into action and wisdom is by joining a community of like-minded people, and investing in coaching.

If you are serious about lifelong learning and transforming yourself for your success in life and your career, listen to learn how to turbo-charge your learning.

The documentary about the community of musicians in Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles that I mentioned in this episode is called: Echo in the Canyon. Well worth a watch if you love music like I do :)

The Tables are Turned with Silvia Puhani

Normally I'm on the side of the table asking questions and interviewing guest, but in this very special #internalauditpodcast episode of #jammingwithjason you get to experience Silvia Puhani interviewing me.

Silvia recently interviewed me for her podcast: Interne Revision, and graciously gave me access to the recording so I could also share it with you.

We discussed:
- my career
- the differences between internal and external auditing
- how you can improve your internal audit marketing
- how to communicate effectively, and
- my views on the future of internal audit

Limitless Learning

Limitless Learning

May 12, 2020

In this #jammingwithjason #internalauditpodcast episode I dig into improving your learning so you can unlock your limitless potential. It's a bit of a potpourri episode, one where we literally talk about potpourri, but a few other topics besides learning :)

You don't just need training, you need to LEARN ... and they are two different things. You can take a training and not learn anything, and you can learn without going to training. To learn you need a combination of knowledge, skills, abilities, and experience. Training only helps you with the first two.

One of the best ways to improve your abilities and get experience is through community with others. Without this aspect of learning you really don't integrate and "learn" the information fully.

Come join me in some communities where I hang out so we can interact directly. Podcasts, while they are fabulous are a one-way communication. When we connect in community the conversation can go both ways.

For a community of like minded internal auditors on a full learning platform check out the cRisk Academy Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/criskacademy/

Here's the book I reference in this episode, that is a must-read for anyone who is serious about life-long learning.

Welcome to the Jungle of Online Training

Welcome to the Jungle of Online Training

May 5, 2020

Seems like everyone and their dog is now offering online training saying the equivalent of "We got everything you want honey, We are the people that can find whatever you may need. If you got the money, honey we got your disease."

I've been in the online space now for about 10 years, and I know all the different words people use may be a little confusing to know exactly what you are getting.

In this #jammingwithjason #internalauditpodcast I do a little public service announcement (PSA) to help you hack your way through the jungle by explaining what certain words mean in the online space, what you can expect by the words used, and three questions to ask yourself before you register or purchase online webinars or course ... so you know what you are getting and don't get surprised.

Online vs. virtual. Learning vs. training. Webinar vs. course. On-demand, forum, summit, in-person ... and the list goes on ... I discuss each, so you are better prepared to find exactly what you need in the online space.

If you are interested in a learning platform that was around long before the pandemic, and will be around long after, check out cRisk Academy: the largest on-demand, webinar, and certification learning platform for internal auditors.

Join thousands of professionals getting technical, soft-skills, certifications, and community though cRisk Academy. Lifetime access, 30-day money-back guarantee, and an online community included with all on-demand courses.
