Audits, Inspections, Investigations... OH MY!
Audits, inspections, investigations... Although they mean slightly different things to different people, no one really gets excited about these words. Rarely do they bring happy thoughts to mind. Instead when we hear these words people often feel their stomach tighten and their pulse quicken. When people hear these types of words they normally think long nights and start to cancel after work activities. They think fines, lost productivity, tarnished reputation and other less than pleasant thoughts. Let's be clear though, people don’t normally feel this way because they know they did something wrong. Instead, it is a normal reaction to being judged and being afraid that they may have overlooked something.
