This episode of Compliance That Makes Sense was inspired by interactions that I recently had with two of my clients, both of whom were having problems with the compliance experts they had hired. The information I am going to share with you today will help you to avoid making the same mistakes they did. Firstly, I debunk the myth that compliance hires should be experts in the specific country in which you are working, and I explain why a geographically broader scope of knowledge will be more beneficial to your company. Secondly, I explain what each characteristic on the DISC personality profile is likely to predict about a person’s ability to perform in the start-up world in general, and as a compliance expert specifically.
