What could you learn from a downed pilot struck behind enemy lines, a hiker lost on the Appalachian trail, or townspeople prepping for the zombie apocalypse? If you currently work for a toxic boss, the answer is A LOT. Your wilderness work calls for a strategy, and what you need in your pocket is this Guide (yes, it is pocket sized).

Built on research from the Center for Creative Leadership's Toxic Boss Project and written with a refreshing blend of humor as well as serious tips, The Toxic Boss Survival Guide is based on the experience of employees working in a wide variety of organizations. It identifies the six most common toxic bosses, describes the mindset you need to endure, and outlines a tactic-rich approach based on wilderness survival principles and the US Air Force's SERE School, including how to survive, evade, resist, and escape.
