International book Promotion is honoured to work with Jaro Berce in promoting his book “Leadership By Virtue”. If you have watched movies like Karate Kid, you will know what Chinese martial arts would look like and what it takes to be a martial artist. We know martial art is a form of self-protection but what if we say it is also connected with corporate skills?
If you think the vast differences in the two cultures; the West and the East would clash badly and is not acceptable to adapt cross-cultural mentality at work place, Jaro has something to share with you.
He has done it successfully and in this book, he provides deep insights to leadership skills according to Far East philosophy.
We are organising Book Trailer Release event on 5th of January for this book and Jaro is giving free copies of his book (eBook) during this event in exchange for a review. Please contact us if you are interested.
Jaro BERCE, Ph.D. co-founded, managed, and served on the board of directors and was involved in management consultancy for a strategic redirection and restructuring projects.

Tell us about your new book? Why did you write it?
