FM Pointers – January 2016
… stirring up your passion for facilities management
It’s 2016, a brand new year:
Let me ask every facilities management practitioner an important question, “What are your goals for your FM career for 2016”?
Career goals give purpose and significance to our career. Goals bring focus, order and enable us to see things differently. Goals energise us, provide motivation and give us a sense of direction. Goals also give a sense of purpose, a fresh perspective and a passion towards our career in FM.
If you are like most who are in FM profession, not by choice without any much thought or planning about your career then aren’t you alike a builder who constructs a building without a blueprint? The outcome is likely to be unsatisfied and frustrated. To have a rewarding and meaningful career in FM, you need to discover about yourself, your personal career goals, develop specific plans to achieve them. Over the months, review your career goals on a regular basis. At least quarterly, set aside time to evaluate your progress in relation to achieving your career goals. You need to set up your own career success blueprint, breaking them down into manageable annual goals to serve as guides to direct you progressively to be, to do and ultimately achieve them.
FMS Associates Asia (FMS) has been striving to stir up the passion of facilities practitioners and to raise the recognition of facilities management as a value-add function and business advantage to organisations. Its theme for 2016 is Performance Improvement: Adding Value to Business and People, with the aim to support fellow facilities practitioners in demonstrating the value of facilities management that matters to their organisations.
