Have I missed anything?

I can only find ‘individualistic’ skills in this Top 10 list. I can’t find ‘Collaboration’ or ‘Working Ethically’, for example.

The only top skill related to ‘Working with others’ is Leadership and Social Influence, which can quickly become manipulative and exploitative if applied without ethics and without the ability (and humbleness) to work constructively with others, especially with people who think and behave differently from us.

What does ‘Leadership and Social Influence’ mean in this list, btw? Both can easily mean being skilled at manipulating people’s attention and pushing one’s own way and one’s own goals on others, making people feel like it’s what they want.

🛑 When a leader is great at these Top 10 skills, what happens when someone tells them that the strategic decision they want to push forward is likely going to damage the organization / the brand / their employees / the planet in the medium to long term? (Situations we witness in organizations daily, btw)

🛑 What happens when a conflict arises, and they are 100% convinced that they are right and the other is wrong? Or when they are 100% convinced that they are superior, and the other inferior?

Please help me understand: where are we heading to?

I’m curious about your point of view on this topic.

   How the heck does Coaching work??

I never thought of sharing this image I created some time ago, but I realize it might help some of you to understand how coaching can make a big difference.

WITHOUT COACHING, you tend to stay stuck on an issue that drains a lot of your time and energy. You either try ignoring it, get confused and overwhelmed, or try different solutions that don’t get you much farther.

WITH COACHING, you start seeing the problem from different perspectives and realize it’s actually easier to deal with it than you thought. You start seeing opportunities and solutions you couldn’t see before, and realize that you can choose the path that works best for you. You now have the clarity on what actions to take to move forward more smoothly, easily and successfully.

Does this help?

Please post your comments and questions below, I’ll be happy to answer them the best I can.

Thank you Marianna Amy Crestani for inspiring me to share this.

Visualizing the biggest tech talent hubs in the U.S. and Canada

The Biggest Tech Talent Hubs in the U.S. and Canada

The tech workforce just keeps growing. In fact, there are now an estimated 6.5 million tech workers between the U.S. and Canada — 5.5 million of which work in the United States.

This infographic draws from a report by CBRE to determine which tech talent markets in the U.S. and Canada are the largest. The data looks at total workforce in the sector, as well as the change in tech worker population over time in various cities.

The report also classifies which metro areas and regions can rightly be considered tech hubs in the first place, by looking at a variety of factors including cost of living, average educational attainment, and tech employment levels as a share of different industries.

The Top Tech Hubs in the U.S.

Silicon Valley, in California’s Bay Area, remains the most prominent (and expensive) U.S. tech hub, with a talent pool of nearly 380,000 tech workers.

Here’s a look at the top tech talent markets in the country in terms of total worker population:

America’s large, coastal cities still contain the lion’s share of tech talent, but mid-sized tech hubs like Salt Lake City, Portland, and Denver have put up strong growth numbers in recent years. Seattle, which is home to both Amazon and Microsoft, posted an impressive 32% growth rate over the last five years.

Emerging tech hubs include areas like Raleigh-Durham. The two cities have nearly 70,000 employed tech workers and a strong talent pipeline, seeing a 28% increase in degree completions in fields like Math/Statistics and Computer Engineering year-over-year to 2020. In fact, the entire state of North Carolina is becoming an increasingly attractive business hub.

Houston was the one city on this list that had a negative growth rate, at -2%.

The Top Tech Hubs in Canada

Tech giants like Google, Meta, and Amazon are continuously and aggressively growing their presence in Canada, further solidifying the country’s status as the next big destination for tech talent. Here are the country’s four tech hubs with a total worker population of more than 50,000:

 Market Total Tech Talent % Talent Growth (2016-2021)
Toronto 289,700 44%
Montreal 148,900 27%
Vancouver 115,400 63%
Ottawa 81,200 22%

Toronto saw the most absolute growth tech positions in 2021, adding 88,900 jobs. The tech sector in Canada’s largest city has seen a lot of momentum in recent years, and is now ranked by CBRE as North America’s #3 tech hub, after the SF Bay Area and New York City.

Vancouver’s tech talent population increased the most from its original figure, climbing 63%. Seattle-based companies like Microsoft and Amazon have established sizable offices in the city, adding to the already thriving tech scene. Furthermore, Google is set to build a submarine high-speed fiber optic cable connecting Canada to Asia, with a terminus in Vancouver.

Not to be left behind, Ottawa has also taken giant strides to increase their tech talent and stamp their presence. The country’s capital even has the highest concentration of tech employment in its workforce, thanks in part to the success of Shopify.

The small, but well-known tech hub of Waterloo also had a very high concentration on tech employment (9.6%). The region has seen its tech workforce grow by 8% over the past five years.

Six out of the top 10 cities by tech workforce concentration are located in Canada.

Evolution of Tech Hubs

The post-COVID era has seen a shifting definition of what a tech hub means. It’s clear that remote work is here to stay, and as workers migrate to chase affordability and comfort, traditional tech hubs are seeing some decline — or at least slower growth — in their population of tech workers.

While it isn’t evident that there is a mass exodus of tech talent from traditional coastal hubs, the rise in high-paying tech jobs in smaller markets across the country could point to a trend and is positive for the industry.

While more workers with great talent, resources, and education continue to opt for cost-friendly places to reside and work remotely, will newer markets like Charlotte, Tennessee, and Calgary see a rise of tech companies, or will large corporations and startups alike continue to opt for the larger cities on the coast?
