I saw the below infographic from on The Revolutionary Club and thought it was interesting.  There's a lot of good information here.

To be honest, I started laughing when I saw Software Developer listed under happiest jobs--is it really funny?  I've worked at a number of companies, and many software developers are satisfied with their jobs.  They often have good paychecks.  But I don't think of them as happy.  They are not smiling as they work and raving about their work over lunch or happy hour.  Do you agree that software developer is one of the happiest careers?

I help people discover their agile instincts and develop their coaching abilities. As an agile coach with Improving in Dallas, I enjoy mentoring others to become great Scrum Masters, coaching managers to grow teams that deliver amazing results, and fostering communities that provide sustainability for agile transformations. In my experience, applying agile methods improves delivery, strengthens relationships, and builds trust between business and IT. A big believer in the power of community-based learning, I grew the DFW Scrum user group significantly over the five years I served as an organizer. I am also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, a foodie, and proud glasses wearer.
