Former Congressional Science Advisor & CEO Publishes New Book On The Neuroscience Behind Workplace Culture

Press Release from E3 Solutions

Don Rheem Releases "Thrive By Design" with ForbesBooks

NEW YORK (August 3, 2017)   –  Don Rheem, founder and CEO of E3 Solutions, today announced the publication of  Thrive By Design: The Neuroscience That Drives High-Performance Cultures  (available now). The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes Media.

Never has the recipe for organizational success been more complicated than it is today, and no ingredient is more critical to that success than the people who go to work every day. In his new book, Rheem—a former science advisor to both the US Congress and the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services—offers managers and senior leaders deep insight into what drives employee performance from a brain-based perspective. Backed by empirically validated science,  Thrive By Design  introduces readers to the triggers of exemplary workplace behavior at a neurological level. Rheem focuses on the systems, leadership skill sets, and environments that consistently and predictably produce more engaged, high-performance workplace cultures.

“What if your team looked forward to Mondays instead of Fridays?” said Rheem. “This type of workplace culture is possible and in place in many organizations today. The key is in the biological hardwiring of humans. In this book, I want to help leaders at all levels in the organization understand the conditions in which the brain will ‘thrive by design.’ This new relational science will be the key distinguishing characteristic of tomorrow’s model companies.”

This book is written for leaders who are tired of fighting against a disengaged culture; HR professionals who spend more time reacting to workplace drama than fulfilling their mission and purpose in the organization; and for employees who have been crippled by toxic leaders and uninspired cultures and want to know there’s a better way.

The book  Thrive By Design: The Neuroscience That Drives High-Performance Cultures  is now available for purchase on
