Closing Keynote – Leadership Skills That Can Take Internal Audit to the C Suite
Internal Auditors have some of the strongest skills necessary to make an impact on their organizations. These include analytical skills and critical thinking. While CEO’s appreciate these, they are placing great emphasis on “Soft Skills” such as Communication and seeing the big picture. This session will discuss how we can bring out these traits and demonstrate our Leadership skills through Coachability: the ability to accept and implement feedback from bosses, colleagues, customers and others; Emotional Intelligence: The ability to understand and manage one’s own emotions, and accurately assess others’ emotions; Motivation: Sufficient drive to achieve one’s full potential and excel in the job; and Temperament: Attitude and personality suited to the particular job and work environment.
