Being Israeli’s ambassador to the UK, Taub makes his days productive by focusing on his six areas of activity that include: Academic Cooperation, business and tech cooperation for example the startup competition called Dragon’s Den style that was in conjunction with Google and Facebook, Jewish and other faith communities whereby he taught church leaders biblical Hebrew and held feasts like joint Moslem-Jewish Iftar, political dialogue, media and public diplomacy and security and intelligence sharing.

He ensures he balances the six and from each, he identifies unexplored areas and reaches out to them.

Taub states that it is his curious habit that makes him a productive diplomat in that the people he meets appreciate when he is genuinely interested in them and their passions.

He advises on two diplomatic techniques: First is working in the realm of possibility in that people should invest their time and effort where there is a possibility of progress.

Secondly is being an active listener such that allowing people to speak their mind out gives room for them to take in yours. For management advice, Taub advocates for investing time to get the right people to work with and develop them. Identifying one’s weak areas and getting people to fill the gap.

Shervin Pishevar: The Tweet Storm That Will Go Down In History

There are great moments in history from throughout the ages. Most of us can recall at least some of the moments that directly touched our lives and had an impact on the way we think about things. Perhaps that is true for you as well. Usually those thoughts don’t circle around Twitter, but there are some moments on Twitter that do have a cultural impact. Shervin Pishevar may have just made one himself with a recent tweet storm.

In the flurry of tweets, Shervin Pishevar was looking to convey the ideas to the world that had been floating around in his mind recently about economic events. He wanted his followers to know that he has been focused on these things and that he has a number of opinions about the things that we have all been obsessing over as of late.

Bitcoin Shervin Pishevar actually has fewer objections to Bitcoin than you might expect. He is not one of the cheerleaders for this crypto-currency that believes that it can do no wrong either. Rather, Shervin Pishevar has a more mixed opinion regarding this one. He does believe that Bitcoin has some value to it, but he is not all that interested in purchasing it right now. This is because in the immediate future he sees it taking a dip.

The American Dream- The American Dream may be something very different than it used to be if you listen to Pishevar. He thinks that so much of our culture and values have been exported at this point that many of the next great would be American inventions will actually be made elsewhere. This is perhaps something to both celebrate and mourn at the same time.

The Stock Market- The market has been on a tear. Who could be upset with the direction of the stock market as of late? Well, Shervin Pishevar believes that it is due for a drop of around twenty percent in value. If you are a holder of US-based equities at the moment he thinks that you should get out immediately.
