How to Leverage Employee Emotion to Build an Engaged Team
https://donrheem.com/blog/
November 05, 2019
Adult attachment theory holds important answers to human vulnerability throughout our lives. Humans inherently seek to maintain safe and secure relationships as a means to survive. Both real and perceived threats activate the attachment system, driving an individual toward a protective figure, like a leader or partner, for support and reassurance.

Embrace Employee Emotion to Create a Positive Work Environment
https://donrheem.com/blog/
October 29, 2019
Adult attachment theory is a fascinating science that helps us understand how to have stronger relationships in both our personal and professional lives. Our human nervous system is wired for connection with others, and when we don’t get that connection, the body and heart suffers. Without safe and secure relationships, we become “emotionally isolated.” Being disconnected from others takes a toll.

3 Simple – But Highly Effective – Steps to Boost Team Engagement
https://donrheem.com/blog/
October 08, 2019
Every employee comes to work with a choice about how much effort they will contribute. We all intuitively know how much effort we have to put in so others don’t ask us what’s wrong or call us out. We refer to those that rarely go above this baseline level of effort as disengaged employees.

Disengaged employees range anywhere from 40-60 percent of the workforce, according to the data collected in our 28-question online engagement assessment.

Thrive By Design: The Neuroscience That Drives High-Performance Cultures
Forbes Books
July 21, 2017
LEADERSHIP DOWN TO A SCIENCE
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.
