“Don’t get discouraged; there is a time and a season for everything. You’ve got a lot of runway when you’re young.” –Brian Sillitto
Today’s world is incredibly dependent on instant gratification. Younger generations tend to have a lower threshold of boredom and an increased need for constant entertainment. With the rise of all things on-demand (and thus less opportunities to practice patience), it’s no surprise that career growth goals in younger generations are ambitious and expected on a shorter time line.
Brian Sillitto, Executive Vice President of Economic Development at the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce, joins Carla Sones for today’s interview. Brian has been with his organization for over 17 years, having steadily grown his impact and influence over time, and he’s got some great advice for emerging leaders who are chomping at the bit to grow their careers. Brian also dives into placemaking, as he shares a little bit about how Columbus, GA is attracting a large number of Millennials and how his organization is involved.
