The Agile Auditor – A Coach Approach

This presentation contributes to the conference theme buy providing real examples and techniques to take your team to the next level – moving forward to be an more agile auditor.

In the environment of change and disruption, coaching will assist in developing the skills of you and your staff.

What is the next step in building a high performing agile audit team and becoming a high performing team member?  Coaching!

Being coached can support you or your team, to build awareness, emotional intelligence,  personal resilience and effectiveness  and develop greater skills and abilities which will have benefits personally and professionally and will enhance team performance.  Developing this coach mindset will improve your effectiveness in dealing with team members, peers and your auditees.  It can also build your capacity and confidence to deal with issues and challenges when they occur before they become major problems which can create reputation risk for your department’s brand

Coaching is a shift in perspective, it is a shift from telling to asking, a shift from providing the answer to empowering your staff in problem solving.  Coaching is also about asking the right questions and being curious.

Taking these techniques and applying them to working with clients, your staff will increase their ability to draw out relevant information, get to the root cause of issues and co-create innovative solutions more quickly.

In this session Sheila and Linda will share some easy to use coaching techniques.

These techniques will not only develop your coaching skills, but ultimately your team’s performance and overall audit quality.
