Taking the time to approach a shy person and help them break out of their shell can be incredibly rewarding for both parties.

John Stoker, president of DialogueWORKS and author of "Overcoming Fake Talk," regularly gives a presentation called "Do you ruin everything by being you?" in which he shares a revealing statistic: About 70% of people are not comfortable speaking up.
