I need ideas, experience, personalities and POV that are different than mine.  Introverts, extroverts welcome, just no perverts.

We had great luck with a program that we had found early on for people who we thought had a tremendous amount of potential. They were incredibly smart and were great at one-on-one conversations but who, in a group, became much more introverted. So we developed this program that I jokingly called ‘The cult’ because it had an amazing impact on people who were introverted in a group initially. We would send them off to this training course and they would come back different people. Probably half of the people that went to that course would easily come back and become supervisors or are leaders within the team within the following year. Others might take the second version of that course. It had an amazing impact on folks. It was one of the better investments we made for people who we thought were ready to be leaders and almost ready to take that next step that really sort of pushed them over the edge.
