As internal auditors, you face difficult communications challenges. The aim is to provide assurance to the board and to senior management; and to generate improvements or changes wherever necessary.
- You have to be very clear if things in the organisation are not working – and provide sufficient support evidence
- You have to reach a shared understanding with specialists and general managers of what needs to change – and why it matters.
- You have to find ways to convince experienced and powerful people to do things differently
These responsibilities and challenges require a new set of skills, competencies and abilities.
Strong communication and presentation skills are essential in this highly challenging environment, whether this is facilitating workshops or negotiating with management or communicating your ideas in the form of reports.
