Leadership by Virtue by Jaro Berce – A Review

Image

Leadership by Virtue is a book you must read if you are someone looking to upgrade your leadership and business skills. Put yourself as a merger between two companies that have different approaches and expertise. How will you make a mutual understanding between these two companies so that the joint-venture you are aiming for could happen?
This leadership skills explained by Jaro in his book is not just for those who are in business but also for people of all ages. Leadership is a skill that has to be nourished every now and then. These skills shouldn’t just be seen from Western culture’s perspective but also from the East.
As a Tai Chi master and an educator, Ben, the hero in this story takes the challenge as a merger in a very unique approach after consulting with his Tai Chi master.
The story takes you close to understand Ben’s everyday life. Everything is very personal; from the part where he gets caught in the heavy traffic, giving way to people and getting a honk from the cars at the back, right to the scenarios on his office, martial arts class and his home where he deals with his wife and son.
Some minor punctuation errors were found in the book and the use of Chinese terms can be very educating but could slow down the process of understanding the book. Nevertheless, the whole concept of how martial arts and the Far East mentality can help you in the corporate world is very intriguing.
If you keep your mind open to new ideas, this can be a good read for you!

IBP’s Trailer: Leadership By Virtue by Author Jaro Berce

IBP’s official book trailer for author Jaro Berce’s book Leadership by Virtue.

Blurb:

The story is showing from a first-person perspective the internal growing up of a leadership process based on non-Western approach. The main character, brought up in Europe and therefore used to Western “cultural background noise’ although practicing Chinese martial arts, has to learn and understand the differences brought by Far East principles if he wants to grasp leadership from a different angle. On the whole, a Western leadership is thought and understood as an external process of a person that influences others. Most of leadership and management books that deal with leadership and managers describe what and how to do it to be more efficient and successful. They describe tools to use to do it. This is called an external process. Outward, because others see leaders as how they behave or how they use those tools in a leadership style and/or process. But we all live our lives and perceive surrounding environment only from our internal eyes. Therefore, the focal questions raised in a book are the following: Do all leaders have the same fears, problems, and difficulties or happiness, pleasure, and delight in being what they are? What are their feelings when leading people, making decisions, or taking responsibility? How do they sense and perceive their subordinates? In a book, those are called internal issues and are dealt with and described through a different approach-an approach that is based on the Far East mentality and shown through Chinese martial arts and Chinese philosophy. The book has eighteen (18) chapters.
