I think Jaro has done an excellent job with this book. While reading this book, I can highly relate to my own experience working in a team and how difficult it could be when you have multicultural members in it with different mentality. Jaro has also incorporated Tai Chi and Chinese philosophies and that literally transports anyone who reads this to the East. Some minor punctuation errors can be found and the excessive use of quotation marks can be distracting. Otherwise, the story is great and if you could read a story based on different culture and advice of leadership based on Chinese philosophy, this book fits your search best!

Does my »cultural background noise« really affect some of my thoughts and approaches and prevents me to see a big picture? My decisions are based on facts, but do my deeply ingrained »herediraty« values impend on the way I would (could) be a better leader? This book is a novelty every leader should read. It takes you through the process of leadership. Well written, it is an educational book, but not a »manual for leadership« as it requires deeper understanding.

A “Leadership by Virtue” is a great book and the most insightful, very practical, and also sometimes quite provocative leadership book I've come across. When I started to read it I wondered whether this book is written in a way that I will go through it easily and actually learn its lessons. Now I know and, the resounding answer is “yes.” If you're just starting out as any kind of a leader, this book provides a unique way of mastering the leadership art with a very different, “unconventional”, approach –based on the Far East mentality and shown through Chinese martial arts and Chinese philosophy. As I was brought up in the Western ‘cultural background noise’, it was a challenge to have an insight into relating Chinese martial arts and, to grasp the art of leadership from a very different angle, i.e. based on Far East principles. There were frustrating moments as sometimes it is hard to understand the “Eastern way”: the consciousness of cause and effect. But, by the end I believe I grasped it. Mostly educational and revealing, I highly recommend this book. Because of its unique approach I rate it 5 stars.

The book “Leadership by Virtue” is told on several levels as the story in the same way as Chinese teach martial arts. The book uses provocative approaches to reorganization and/or merge of two organizations. The same goes for the economy in general. But these topics are not the focal point of the book; they are a skeleton to a story telling of a new and different approach to the leadership. Some of it I will definitely use in my own working environment.
