Dr. Nilda Perez: Creating a Space for Innovation
Dr. Nilda Perez helps behavioral health organizations to optimize operations and innovate their organization. She positions an organization with high-performing strategies and leading-edge practices.
She has about three decades in behavioral healthcare, as a Clinical Social Worker and in various leadership roles. She also has a Doctorate in Strategic Leadership with a concentration in Strategic Foresight – essential for forecasting and helping you design your desired future.
Dr. Nilda’s expertise in operations, optimization, and high performance in behavioral healthcare qualifies her to help organizations. Then she merged that expertise with her knowledge in innovation strategies – the perfect blend for organizational success.
Dr. Nilda had been working with businesses positioning them for innovative success. Yet, she always kept her private practice knowing that this is her calling and her passion. Since the pandemic she has decided to merge both her skills and is helping organizations by infusing innovation into behavioral healthcare. She does this by creating cutting-edge operations and preparing for any upcoming crisis so that organizations can stand apart from the competition in the behavioral healthcare space.
In this episode, Dean Newlund and Dr. Nilda Perez discuss:
- Focusing on what you can control
- Innovation and creativity
- Taking care of the caretakers
- Creating a better system
- People who focused on the circle that they could control, rather than those that they can’t, tended to do better than most in the pandemic.
- Innovation and creativity are good tools to combat fear and anxiety.
- We need to take care of the caretakers. By giving them extra time to heal and rest, we can reduce the amount of burnout that caretakers are experiencing.
- Creativity makes the world more interesting and colorful. Innovation and creativity are the way towards progress, it is through these tools that we can create better systems.
“It was the person that was more productive and channeled, was able to make the change, was able to deal with the shift – those were the ones that fared better. The more time they spent creating, the better their mental health.” — Dr. Nilda Perez
