10 Skills for New Facility Managers

The Skills Guide for Facility Managers details 10 must-have traits for those new to the industry

Just starting out in your facility management career? Little to no experience in the field? You have a firm interest within this industry but don’t really know where to start or know how to gain momentum toward the success you want? If so, this guidebook was made for you — the facility manager that is new to the industry but very eager to get started and ready to make an impression.

Many professionals fall into the facility management industry by accident. Unfortunately, there isn't too much information available tailored specifically to the new facility manager with no official experience. No descriptions on what to expect or how to achieve success. For many, being thrown into the fire and tossed to the sharks is the only approach. While this can be an effective strategy, it's not for everyone.

For those new to the industry, or even those who still feel new after years on the job, this is the guidebook for you. Through articles and videos, industry consultant Charles M. Thomas will detail 10 must-have skills to become a stand-out facility manager.

To be successful with adapting the information in this guidebook, the keyword to take full advantage of is “Application.” With each chapter, readers should think about how the information coincides with their work life, jot down some notes, and put them to action when on site.
