"Sharp Grossmont Hospital recently had the pleasure of having Dr. Neil Farber as our guest speaker at our quarterly general medical staff meeting. This was one of the most well-attended meetings that we have ever had. Dr. Farber spoke eloquently and with a touch of humour, which linked very nicely into his topic of positivity in the workplace. His words of wisdom really hit home with the medical staff, and we truly appreciate him visiting us. He had such great ideas, logical advice, and an all-round way of just making good sense. He was such a delight, and we hope to put his words into practice. Thank you, Dr. Farber, for pointing us in the right direction towards positivity."
-Rina Jain, M.D., Chief of Staff, Grossmont Hospital, La Mesa, CA
"Dr. Farber's knowledge on positivity in the workplace should be heard by all healthcare organizations. His concepts improve employee/provider satisfaction and relationships but most importantly they improve the overall experience for patients. I encourage anyone involved in healthcare to learn from Dr. Farber."
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin
“Dr. Farber’s insights into the damage we’re inflicting on ourselves in healthcare was thought provoking. As I work to improve quality and reduce the cost of healthcare, the idea of a positive work environment resonates with me – as it should for anyone who is concerned about controlling the cost of healthcare. While it seems intuitive that creating a positive healing environment for the patient has a direct impact on the rate of healing, we often don’t stop to think about the things we do and say in our daily routines that contradict the environment we work so hard to create for the patient. To truly change how we deliver healthcare in our institutions and reform healthcare, it’s crucial we work to incorporate Dr. Farber’s advice on a positive work environment.”

"I found Dr. Farber’s presentation to be well worth my time. Not only is he an excellent speaker, but his research is fascinating! His work really validates that the way we treat each other and our patients can truly make a profound difference in the healing process."
-Anne E. Jurenec, Chief Executive Officer, Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin
"I really enjoyed Dr. Farber's presentation at the ACHE meeting. My biggest takeaway was affirmation of his theory of positivity correlating to productivity. We all intuitively understand this (ex: - don't yell at someone trying to learn how to ride a bike, but rather encourage them, help them along.) It's the same in business and medicine. I believe in the comfort scoring instead of pain scoring methodology. I recently experienced this in my own physician's office. She and I got a chuckle when I pointed out the immediate negative connotation of the pain chart. I'll never look at one of those charts the same, and it's a great reminder of how positive life can be. Thanks Dr. Farber!!!"

"I was recently at a WISPAN seminar at which Neil Farber presented 2 very helpful topics. I work as a nurse in pre-op, pacu, and post-op roles in a small hospital. His talks were so applicable to my daily work. He's a great speaker, very funny! I also got a copy of his book, The Blame Game and really enjoyed it! I would highly recommend him as a speaker! Thank you very much!!"
"I met you at the Perianesthesia Nursing Conference last fall in Door County.Your talk was so inspiring to me and many of the principles you talked about are similar to those of Al anon, which has helped me in all areas of my life. Anyway, when I returned the next week, I ran into our CEO and told him about you and he went on to hire you for our hospital. I am so happy that you will be speaking to the fine people at Sauk Prairie Memorial Hospital and Clinics; they are an amazing group of people and they will soar with your help."

"What an interesting presentation you provided today, June 8th to the members of Professional Dimensions! Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about positivity and how to make it part of your personal and professional life. I am a great believer in the power of thinking this way. Your depth of knowledge is amazing! This is a topic that all of us need to re-define and apply throughout our lives as we all tend to fall back in to those negative things. Many positive comments were heard from those who attended the meeting."

"The presentation on Positivity in the workplace by Dr. Farber was very insightful for the staff. It generated a lot of discussion both at the time of presentation and for days after. Dr. Farber kept the audience engaged during the entire presentation. His use of examples and stories threaded throughout the presentation really helped the staff remember the concepts and be able to apply them every day here at work. I would highly recommend this presentation to help enlighten people on how easy it is to be more positive in their daily work lives."
