Greater Results Through Negotiation

– Achieving cooperation and resolving conflict in the Audit Process –


In today’s complex international business environment, auditors must successfully overcome two major communication challenges: Maximizing cooperation with audit clients AND navigating between Audit’s position and the audit client’s position on audit findings and recommendations.

This workshop aims at improving negotiation skills, persuading, and building relationships entirely from an audit point of view. The foundations of professionalism, the audit process, and the nature of audit findings will all be addressed. Tactics, techniques and language to optimize cooperation, deal with difficult audit clients, and overcome resistance to findings and recommendations will contribute to the auditor’s future success in interviews, closing meetings and findings resolution.
