Book Description:

Joseph Apolinar is a U.S. Air Force SERE Specialist, an expert at preparing high-risk military personnel to SURVIVE the elements, EVADE capture, RESIST exploitation, and ESCAPE their captors should they be separated from friendly control in remote, hostile environments.  


Drawing from his extensive experience and professional development, Apolinar shares fourteen vital leadership lessons like how to build your influence and plant the right trees on your team, the importance of doing yoga and watching out for burnout, and how to ultimately leave something behind for the emerging leaders coming after you. 


Useful for guided group discussions or deep independent reflection, A Letter to My Replacement is an invaluable resource for any organization seeking to build strong and ethical leaders in a world that desperately needs them.
