Ethical resilience is often listed as one of the top attributes of high-performing internal auditors and audit leaders in organizations around the world. To learn and sustain trust in the organizations they serve, internal auditors must conform to the profession’s code of ethics, and they must also bring a strong moral compass to their role. Internal auditors must guard against “blind spots” - a temporary inability to see the ethical aspect of behavior or a decision being made. This session will explore how to identify/navigate blind spots and other challenges and opportunities as they model ethical behavior in their organization.
