How Effective Communication Skills Contribute to Successful Audits and Successful Organizations?
I’m honoured to have been interviewed by Silvia Puhani, whose passion for excellence in internal audit inspired her to create a pod case series specifically for internal audit.
Silvia and I met at the German IIA conference in Dresden in November 2018. We hit it off instantly because our ‘whys’ are the same. We both want to provide internal auditors with the techniques, strategies and insights that will help them be successful.
We spend a good hour together talking about audit reports, communication training, and how to overcome audit communication pain points specifically.
I hope you enjoy the podcast.
All the best,
Passion for Internal Audit
Silvia Puhani realized over the last two decades of her Internal Audit career, that to be effective as an Internal Auditor, it is not enough to have expert knowledge in the audited function. You also need to have extensive professional competence as an Internal Auditor.
Out of her own need, she developed concepts for audit competence based on systemic consulting, organizational development, mediation, conflict resolution and appreciative inquiry. She is the leading specialist in audit competence and audits to improve the resilience of companies.
Her mission is to elicit the further improvement of the audit competence of each and every Internal Auditor, so that they can transform their organization into a better version of itself.
