In this week's #jammingwithjason episode I speak with Frank Coleman about lessons he learned from being a CAE. We discuss various topics including: having think skin, getting a horizontal spread of experience, not losing your cool, and two sides to every story. We also discuss the HR side of being a CAE and how to surround yourself with a great team and dealing with change.

So much wisdom from Frank in this episode.

Frank Coleman is the CAE of Farmers and Merchants Bank in southern California. He has successfully done a turn-around of internal audit in his organization (including rebranding), and built teams as well as relationships across multiple organizational levels and stakeholder groups.

Take a listen to the episode to learn Frank's career path and advise on becoming a CAE.
