NJISACA Persuasive Communication Skills for Auditors and Security Professionals.


Please join Claire Tills, M.A. for NJISACA Persuasive Communication Skills for Auditors and Security Professionals.


Persuasion is a critical communication skill necessary in almost every field or function. Unfortunately, the education and training for more technical roles often neglects soft skills topics. This training looks to compensate for that. The training begins with an overview of basic persuasive principles before diving into more specific tools, tactics, and activities. In addition to general persuasive skills, this training will focus specifically on auditor and consultant-client engagements. We will discuss how to be persuasive through a variety of communication channels like email, formal presentations, and reports. Students will walk away having developed a plan and persuasive message for a situation of their choosing as well as guides and best practices for most of the common situations they will encounter.

Learning Objectives
1. Know and apply basic persuasive principles and tactics
2. Plan and deliver successful persuasive messages (Do so in a variety of contexts to a variety of audiences)
