Keys to Advancing Your Financial Crime-Fighting Career

Your current and future employability and advancement as a financial crime fighter will be determined by your capacity to adapt and take on new roles. Doing anything new demands the acquisition of new knowledge and the development of new skills. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT ALL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS ARE LEARNABLE, SO BECOMING A LIFELONG LEARNER IS VITAL. In this short podcast episode, I outline four building blocks to effective learning that not only work for me but have also been advocated for over a century by educational theorists. *** This episode is brought to you by THE FINANCIAL CRIMES LEARNING EXPERIENCE.

Keys to Advancing Your Financial Crime Fighting Career - Part 5

There is nothing soft about “soft skills.” We diminish the value of skills such as empathy, adaptability, persuasion, and effective decision-making when we mislabel them as soft skills, which implies, they are optional. They are not.  We look for these qualities in our managers, co-workers, and personal relationships. So, they aren’t soft in the least. It’s time to call them what they indeed are – real skills.   *** This episode was brought to you by The Financial Crimes Learning Experience. A 4-week, project-based, peer-supported, expert-led, immersive anti-financial crime, and real life-skills workshop for those who aspire to become high-performing financial crime fighters in the financial industry.

Keys to Advancing Your Financial Crime Fighting Career - Part 4

"A little knowledge is a dangerous thing; drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring." – ALEXANDER POPE, I frequently get asked by budding financial crime fighters what courses or certifications they should take to best prepare them for a successful career in anti-financial crime. My answer has invariably been to not focus on credentials but rather to put their effort and attention into identifying the right financial crime knowledge they need and learning it in the right order and sequence. Then practice until that knowledge to a level of proficiency that they can explain things from first principles. Please enjoy.   *** This episode was brought to you by THE FINANCIAL CRIMES LEARNING EXPERIENCE. I'm very excited to bring to the world this unique workshop. I bring my 20 plus years of experience in fighting financial crime and decades-long personal development study and combine them into this holistic and immersive workshop that balances technical learning and real-life skills training. This workshop is truly a new way of learning about anti-financial crime. I am confident in the value of this workshop that I am willing to take all the risks. If, after attending the first of the four modules of the workshop, you decide to drop out for any reason, I will refund 100% of your tuition, no questions asked. As a bonus, The Financial Crimes podcast listeners (that's you) receive a 10% tuition discount (that's a 100 USD savings) if you use the promo code TFCPODCAST (all caps) when signing up.  Visit WWW.THEFINANCIALCRIMES.COM/WORKSHOP for more information and to sign up.

Keys to Advancing Your Financial Crime Fighting Career - Part 3

"Success leaves clues. People who succeed at the highest level are doing something differently than everyone else does." – Tony Robbins My book Financial Crime Fighter Book of Mentors - Practical Career Advice from Leaders in our Profession (www.thefinancialcrimes.com/book http://www.thefinancialcrimes.com/book) is based entirely on this principle. But since all advice is autobiographical, according to best-selling author Austin Kleon, "Your Mileage May Vary". Still, you must seek out such knowledge and if you come across advice that resonates, try it. If it works, keep doing it. If it doesn't, chuck it aside.  Please enjoy.

Key to Advancing Your Financial Crime Fighting Career - Part 2

So, you want to advance your career in anti-financial crime? Take Simon Sinek’s advice. Before we can figure out HOW to advance our career in anti-financial crime, we must "Start with WHY", as Simon Sinek proposes in his book of the same name, and he goes on to say that "Finding Why is a process of discovery, not invention." In this episode, I share with you a life-changing (to me at least) exercise that I’ve been practising for many years now on how to discover one’s true Why. I walk you through an example of how to uncover reasons why it is important for you to take steps to advance your financial crime-fighting career.   *** This episode was brought to you by THE FINANCIAL CRIMES LEARNING EXPERIENCE.
