E1: A Little Ditty and Some Elephants in the Room
In this first episode of Jamming with Jason you'll hear a little ditty about the show - format, content, and why this show is being produced. We'll also discuss some of the elephants in the room related to internal audit, the topics of many future shows. This is a real and unscripted show about what it takes to be a successful Chief Audit Executive and professional in internal audit, risk management, and compliance.
E2: Are You Really a Trusted Advisor?
Many support functions in organizations want to be seen as a “trusted advisor” to the business, and internal audit is no exception. There is an aspiration to provide value, so we work really hard proving to ourselves that we are adding value, but other don't see it and tend to runaway.
“And I wonder, I wo, wo, wo, wo, wonder, why,” we aren’t seen as trusted advisors. Maybe it’s because we don’t really understand what “trust” and “advice” really mean.
E3: Creating a Support Network and Some Werewolves in London
When we try to go through this thing called life and our career alone, the road is hard and usually full of landmines. It's better to admit we need help and create or join a group that can be a support network and group of advisors before the stress and pressures from work spill over into our personal life and send us spiraling downward.
There is magic in groups. When the right people get together, develop real connections, and provide support and encouragement for each others, some really amazing things happen. Learn how magic happened during the writing of "Werewolves of London," hear a story of what happens when you try to do it alone, and how you can create your own support network, or join a group like the new CAE Roundtable.
