Free and open discussion, trust, critical thinking, learning, and improving.
At the beginning of interviews, some people seem a bit worried about being audited. During the discussions, people start to relax, they make confidences, and they seem really glad to explain their daily routines, to share their enthusiasm but also the difficulties they encounter. Seeing smiling faces at the end of interviews is highly rewarding. Being able to build a trustful relationship between the auditor, the organization and community members is clearly one of the most extraordinary audit experience.
