Soft Skills for Auditors - In-Person

Soft Skills for Auditors - In-Person

Each internal audit professional has to have a variety of both soft and technical skills. The combination of soft skills with technical expertise are crucial to each audit project’s success.

 

During this event, we will cover the soft skills, professional standards, important frameworks, competencies, and methodologies that Audit management and staff need to use for more effective communication.

 

Auditor soft skills can be thought of as the interpersonal or emotional intelligence toolkit needed to navigate internal audit projects, while technical skills relate to the content specific areas of expertise needed by auditors to understand the industry and processes under evaluation.

 

The list of soft skills is seemingly endless; however, these are the focus of this event:

  • Verbal Communications
  • Written Communications
  • Relationship Building
  • Respect for clients as subject matter experts
  • Honest and transparent lines of communication
  • Continuous knowledge gain
  • Adaptability while using both soft and technical skills
  • Healthy Skepticism
