New Year Resolution suggestions for Internal Auditors!‎

As we are about to start a New Year in our professional life, I thought of putting together an example of suggested New Year resolutions for internal auditors:

- Improve your IT skills & knowledge (this is a must-have).
- Keep current with the latest business, corporate governance, and internal audit issues.
- Have the courage to report things as they are.
- Keep a close eye on current and developing risks.
- Be a strong advocate and promoter of internal audit and corporate governance.
- Listen more, speak less ( you need to speak up when you have to).
- Make sure you fully understand your company's strategic objectives.
- Educate Audit Committee (and others) on current trends in business, internal audit & other issues.  
- Set a goal of learning something new every day.
- Add value in everything you do.
- Always be proactive,
- Look at the big picture,
- Don't wait until December to earn your CPE!

Wishing you all a successful and prosperous new year.
