This webinar explores what it means to be trusted, how to give advice, and what it takes to be an advisor. We start by looking at behaviors and organizational challenges that auditors exhibit or face. From expected roles and responsibilities to tradition to regulator dependence, auditors must deal with several influences that seem to deter progress in this area.
We then provide a profile of what a trusted advisor should look like which will help participants visualize exactly what they want to become. We will explore several of the behaviors and attitudes to avoid the development of trust and the role of a trusted advisor. Finally, we will let everyone know exactly what it is that sets trusted advisors apart from everyone else.
This is a must webinar for auditors who are on the cutting edge of their careers and for anyone who wants to make an impression with leadership through trust and good advice.

Why Should You Attend
The Institute of Internal Auditors has encouraged auditors to become “trusted advisors” to their business clients. While this is a noble endeavor not all auditors understand what that means and how it looks. Further, business leaders and Audit Committee members are not yet sure how an auditor can become an advisor and maintain their independence. This webinar will answer those questions and more as we explore what an advisor is and how one can earn a business leader's trust.
