In 1965 NASA sent its first manned spaceship, under the Gemini program, into space.

Operated by Gus Grissom and John Young, Gemini 3’s launch was so smooth that the astronauts did not even feel the lift-off. They orbited the Earth three times before re-entering and landing safely – a major milestone in NASA’s history-making journey to the moon.

More than 50 years later, another Gemini 3 is about to lift off, this time in the HR technology space.

Move over extraverts: why introverts are more powerful than you think

Move over extraverts: why introverts are more powerful than you think
This year sees some landmark anniversaries. Bill Gates, frequently cited as the wealthiest person alive, turns 60, J.K. Rowling, whose fortune is valued at £560 million, turns 50, and we recognise the 150th anniversary of the death of Abraham Lincoln.

While there can be little doubt as to the inordinate successes of these individuals, each also shares a characteristic which we don’t commonly associate with prominence and power – introversion.
