Communication & Interviewing Techniques for Internal Auditors

ΠΕΡΙΓΡΑΦΗ

Course Overview 

Communication is defined as the act or process of using words, sounds, signs, or behaviours to express or exchange information or to express your ideas, thoughts, feelings, etc, to someone else. Internal Auditors spend the majority of their time communicating: speaking with and interviewing clients, preparing information for distribution and deciphering information they have gathered.  

A lack of effective communication drives many Internal Auditors to “fail” to add value to their activities in the organisations they work for. Prospective auditors should have among other, strong communication skills, the ability to interview people and should trust their communication skills in order to discuss major audit findings, tendencies and risks with senior management and gain respect. Interviewing is part science and part art form and this course is designed to help auditors develop the interviewing skills needed for establishing rapport and effective fact gathering. 

ΣΚΟΠΟΣ ΣΕΜΙΝΑΡΙΟΥ

The objective of the seminar is to update and provide guidance for all issues related to effective communication between auditors and auditees indicating all those techniques that will help Internal Auditors to be respected and accepted by their “internal clients”.

In addition the analysis of effective interviewing techniques will provide an utterly structured method to approach different and difficult situations that Internal Auditors might face while doing their job, more specifically:

  • Learning interviewing techniques and styles 
  • Understanding different styles of communication 
  • Communicating effectively with clients and stakeholders 
  • Active listening skills 
  • Becoming a skilled interviewer – developing an effective questioning and interviewing style 
  • Developing skills for dealing with difficult people and situations 
  • Using interviewing guides and tools 
  • Tips, tools and techniques for communication
