The Neurochemistry of Communication—Brain Based Enablers and Barriers to Getting Your Point Across
Michael Perry, Ph.D
President, Catalyst Executive Advising & Development

LOCATION: Snelling Center, Augusta, GA
Networking at Snelling
Q&A / Door Prizes
Communication is at or near the top of every relationship problem list—personal or professional. Most leaders understand that effective communication is critical to the success of their organizations; however, few appreciate the biological mechanisms that drive and impact every exchange with other human beings. During this session, participants will: (1) Deepen their understanding of the role of common neurotransmitters in human behavior and communication, (2) Recognize communication hallmarks of select neurotransmitters, (3) Understand behaviors that facilitate or impede effective communication.
Mike Perry knows people. He also understands that people—not products or processes—are the core resource that drive every organization on the planet. People make the difference! With world-class, doctorate-level psychology training and world-wide leadership experience, Mike is equipped to help leaders solve people-problems and create places people choose to work every day…and a culture that retains them.
The experience of every human being is a combination of biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors. Leaders who understand the role of these factors—and how they show up every day in their workplaces—are better equipped to transform culture, motivate teams, and exceed their most ambitious goals. Mike and his team of coaches and consultants have employed their deep understanding of human learning, motivation, and interaction to deliver a life-changing coaching experience with long-term benefit for individuals, teams, and entire organizations.
Mike honed his leadership skills with over 20 years in the U.S. Army, serving teams across the globe. The diversity of his experience is striking, with roles in medical facilities, academic institutions, executive agencies, and even combat units across the United States, Asia, and the Middle East. Although the locations and roles have varied, Mike believes that the common element in each has been the people who make success possible…the catalysts. Mike’s deep understanding of the factors that drive behavior, combined with his leadership background, produce a rare blend of knowledge and practical expertise that provide amazing value for his clients.
Mike earned his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and his Master’s Degree in Medical Psychology from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, also known as “America’s Medical School.” He also earned a Leadership Coaching Certification from Georgetown University. Having mastered a curriculum that rivals any in the world, coupled with challenging real-world experiences, Mike is exceptionally well-prepared and uniquely equipped to make the connection between mind, body, and action. He is now eager to share his insight to help leaders understand the complex union of biology, thought, and behavior.
Mike’s clients include private sector corporations, universities, non-profit organizations, medical facilities, and local, federal and state government agencies.
Mike Perry also knows balance. Understanding that work is but one factor of human performance, Mike is also a committed husband and father. Mike is married to Wendy Perry, and has two daughters, Sydni, 18 and Morgan, 15.
