  • 2017 Thrive By Design: The Neuroscience That Drives High-Performance Cultures

Don Rheem is founder & CEO of E3 Solutions, an employee engagement technology company that empowers organizations to build engaged, high-performance cultures. Rheem focuses on using neuroscience and behavioral science-backed research to consult with leaders in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. His passion for delivering truly outstanding improvements in business performance conveys quickly to the CEOs and senior executives he works with.

A former science advisor to Congress and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Rheem shares a grounded and empirically validated methodology to get employees more engaged and better positioned for success targeted at the bottom line. He and his team at E3 Solutions show business leaders how to create the workplace conditions that trigger hardwired motivators to improve employee performance. These intrinsic drivers of human behavior increase engagement in ways that improve productivity, team alignment, morale, and retention.

A leading speaker and author, Rheem lectures on employee engagement throughout North America and Europe helping thousands of CEOs understand the key drivers of exceptional workplace behavior. His ForbesBooks publication, Thrive By Design: The Neuroscience That Drives High-Performance Cultures, lays out the neurological underpinnings of human behavior that distinguish Rheem’s company from conventional leadership consulting. He has presented some of his most popular content in “Can Work Save Our Relationships?” and "How to Stay Ahead of the Future of Work" at TEDx.

Rheem comes from a long line of entrepreneurs; his great grandfather was president of Standard Oil and his grandfather was the founder of Rheem Manufacturing, one of the largest suppliers of water heaters and air conditioning equipment in the world. He lives just outside Washington, D.C. with his wife, Dr. Kathryn Rheem, and enjoys spending time with his family and writing in his free time.
