What if your team looked forward to Mondays instead of Fridays? It may sound silly, but this type of workplace culture is possible and in place in many organizations today.

With Thrive by Design, CEO of E3 Solutions Don Rheem offers managers and senior leaders deep insights into what drives employee performance from a brain-based perspective. Going well beyond the recycled, superficial tactics in most leadership books, Thrive by Design introduces you to the triggers of exemplary workplace behavior at a neurological level. Tapping into these triggers leads to increased productivity, well-being, accountability, and retention. As you apply the practical approaches and tools outlined in the book, you will see less absenteeism, corrosive gossip, employee drama, accidents, and quality shortfalls.

This book is for leaders who are tired of fighting against a disengaged culture; for 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. Regardless of industry type or company size, the clear foundation and steps outlined in Thrive by Design can take your organization to the next level.

“…a graduate course in employee engagement… An essential read

for any leader or manager serious about their craft.”

Steve Meyer | CEO, Rapid Learning Institute

minds of our top leaders.”
