  ADHD & ANXIETY 

I am so grateful for our work together. You enabled me to embrace the way my brain works and the tools you gave me have been invaluable. I now can identify when my ADHD is pulling me into scattered directions, and I know the exact steps I need to take in those moments to bring it all back into control. I use my planning and meditation techniques daily and the positive impact they have had on my life and my family relationships is awesome. 
I look forward to working together again in the future!

Robert’s down to earth coaching style made me feel comfortable right away.
His skill and expertise enabled him to evaluate my needs and connect me to tools and actions that helped me not only rediscover my dreams, but to start to believe I could achieve them.
His guidance and support continues to help me build faith and trust in my strengths and abilities, enabling me to take the necessary steps to make my dreams a reality.
I found Robert to be accepting, likeable, funny, motivational, intuitive and genuine.
— Shelly Logan, OCT, NZCT, London, Ontario
ADHD meds and trying ideas from so many ADHD books were not changing my life enough. Luckily, my ADHD psychiatrist recommended Robert to me, and just three months later Robert has provided me with the tools and coaching support to dramatically increase my confidence, self-esteem, and productivity – not to mention growing my small business. He has helped me follow-through on creating new ways and changing old ways, of living a more effective and fulfilling life.
For the first time in my life, I feel I’m running at my ADHD, not from it, maximizing the parts that a huge advantage, and mitigating or eliminating the parts that were keeping me from feeling and being successful.


— Mike Crum, Principal, Crum Group
I’m inspired and impressed with your innovative approach to ADHD.
— Wayne O’Brien , Organizer, ADHD Support Group Toronto 
When I came to see Robert, I was a recently diagnosed 44 year-old whose life was in chaos due to my symptoms. Although I was in treatment, this did not eliminate my symptoms but merely made them a bit easier.

In order to improve, I had to eliminate 44 years of bad habits Robert helped me with these by reviewing chosen problems and using scenarios from the parts of my life where I was successful, to create solutions by transferring these skills to work around my ADD symptoms. We would then devise experiments to test the hypotheses, then measure and modify until we found a solution that would work.

2 of my biggest enemies in my daily struggles with ADD are lack of sleep and stress due to the condition. Robert introduced me to meditation as a technique to assist with both.
Robert’s help has been invaluable and his approach very personable. He genuinely cares about his clients and their wellbeing. I found his methods very personally tailored to my needs which is something I appreciate and also necessary for my continued improvement.
— Wilson Kendriks, Seattle, Washington
Rob ‘s patient, intuitive understanding of people makes him an insightful and easy person to get along with. His capacity for long-term vision and his solid foundation in mindfulness are the perfect tools to provide meaningful support and guidance to those struggling with executive function challenges.
I owe a lot to Rob and I would recommend his services to anybody.
— Jonathan Nicolson,  Toronto, Ontario
While I have read a lot of helpful material on ADD, working with Robert has taken things to the next level. I’ve learned how to slow down and take stock of what is happening, without beating myself up.
I have become a better communicator, my relationships have improved and I believe I have the skills to avoid getting depressed again.
— Alan Robson, Ottawa, Ontario
I started working with Rob about 2 months ago to learn more about incorporating meditation into my work like balance as a means of  helping manage my anxiety levels.   During our meetings Rob very quickly started  to explore the areas within both my personal and work life that caused me anxiety. He helped me recognize the triggers and develop very simple strategies to navigate the trigger points which very quickly resulted in lower levels of anxiety for me!   
The focus of our weekly meetings quickly evolved in to discussions about opportunities and challenges within my growing business and my personal life.  I quickly realized that in addition to the benefit of verbalizing the day to day business issues confronting me,  Rob was an incredibly savvy and experienced entrepreneur that had incredible insights which have already had an incredibly positive impact on me and my company. 
I consider my weekly meetings with Rob to be the equivalent of a personalized entrepreneurial forum group but with the advantage of having it all be about me!  
Rob’s advise is practical and grounded and is based on his own entrepreneurial success story.  
 I would highly recommend working with Rob to any entrepreneur that is looking for non biased outstanding advice on both a personal and business level!

— Sean Magennis , Chief Operating Officer, The Young Presidents Organization YPO
Robert is that rare combination of business coach and healer in one. Yes, we worked together and created the structure I needed for more success and less stress in my work life. But at the same time, his way of listening helped my insights and awareness unfold, enabling change and growth in my personal life as well.
— Susan Gottlieb, VP and Wealth Advisor, Toronto
Robert Pal has been tremendously helpful to me as an ADHD and business coach. I’ve suffered from an extreme case of ADHD for 25 years; it’s been a serious obstacle for me ever since I was a child. I’ve worked with numerous healthcare practitioners, therapists, and coaches to try to overcome my ADHD, but none were able to help me successfully. However, several months ago, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Robert. Since then, he’s been a wonderful asset in providing support with my ADHD, my business ventures and my relationships with others. With his guidance and support, I’ve finally been able to take control of my ADHD. I’m able to function and remain productive without the aid of medication, which is the greatest gift anyone could have given me. I appreciate Robert deeply, and I feel that I owe him a great debt for helping me when no one else could.
— Marc R. New York, NY
First off, i would like to take the time to thank you for your support, guidance and feedback over the past year. Since we meet over 20 years ago, as Entrepreneurs at the MIT 3 year program - we both have had our fair share of life experiences.  Marriage, Divorce, Children, new relationships, personal searching. The Selling  of Companies, Winding down Companies, beginnings of new companies and new life perspectives. 
Well, I wanted to share with you and others, that you- Robert, have a unique way of listening, framing the situation, stretching the mind, respecting the experience, challenging my conclusions.  You have walked the walk- as an entrepreneur, father, husband, friend-  going all in with your insights and perspectives.. You are patient yet persistent. It is very helpful to hear your wrap conclusions, the occasional check in or reminder,  as we build on our next session. Your supportive, nonjudgmental touch - allows me to be more comfortable- creating a space for me to allow myself to have breakdowns leading to my breakthrough’s!  Thank you!!

Working with you has undoubtedly had a positive impact on my business. You are a great listener with a quick ability to understand the nature of any business situation- I am assuming this comes from the decades of hands on experience you had in building successful businesses. Your strategic, “out of the box” way of looking at things brings fresh perspective and has been extremely valuable to me in making key business decisions. I consider you a valuable member of our advisory team and look forward to many years of continued success & working together in the future.
— Steven Page, President, Founder Stalco Inc.
As CEO of a small business, life can be very lonesome and the day-to-day responsibility of running the business can be very overwhelming. One of the best business decisions I have ever made was to enlist the help of Robert Pal. As an entrepreneur and successful businessman, Rob is the ideal sounding board. He’s astute and his business acumen allows him to cut through the clutter of a problem, and provide sound and actionable solutions. In addition, Rob holds me accountable for my actions which is an invaluable motivator to get things done. Rob has been a source of inspiration, encouragement and unwavering support. He has helped me to articulate, and ultimately execute on tactics to achieve my goals, navigate through rough terrains, and the confidential nature of our relationships allows me to speak candidly about anything that is on my mind. I highly recommend Rob Pal time, and time, (and time!) again.
— Julie Grant, Chicago Illinois
I know Robert to be a great leader. He connects powerfully with people, is authentic and has a diverse and deep level of personal, academic and business experiences to share.
— Chris Thomson, Head Coach Student Work Painting
Robert has proven to be a fantastic sounding board for me. He has far reaching experience, great communication skills and the right answers. His marketing and financial experience has been invaluable in helping me review various strategies and deciding which ones to focus on and his coaching keeps me focused on the big picture. On a personal note its great to have someone to talk to who doesn’t have their own agenda and who has experienced many of the same challenges.
He gets it!
There is hardly a day that goes by where I don’t recall his comments and advise, and now Robert sessions are a regular - and critical- part of my itinerary, and he’s an important member of our team.

University Coaching

Dear Rob,
Thank you so much for being such a great mentor to Jacob. Now that you did all the heavy lifting, I relaxed into his company this weekend. We had a great time, well at least I did: found out about his life: friends, social life, interests, whatever he was willing to share. We debated politics and world issues; I tried keeping up as best as I could. He’s certainly got a strong intellect, and a lot of strong opinions. I rather enjoyed myself seeing how he’s developing. With deep  gratitude to you.
— Sarah Jacobs,Wickliffe,  OH,
My 19 year old son Jonathan has had 10 sessions with Robert and has made great progress. Robert has helped Jonathan to manage personal challenges and stressful situations, as well as to identify and work with his strengths. He has gained in self-awareness and self-confidence. He is more organized, focused and disciplined and has been doing much better in school. I’m so grateful that we found Robert and I look forward to his continued work with Jonathan such that he can achieve his true potential.
— Dr. Julie Gilbert, Ottawa, Ontario

Giving Back

I am writing to express my sincere appreciation and satisfaction with the work Robert Pal has achieved with our team in a coaching capacity. Robert has been extraordinarily helpful, helping key team members of both Me to We and Free The Children with their marketing projects and strategies. Robert has provided great guidance, specifically in the areas of promotional marketing, online traffic and sales strategies, by being able to see each project from a big picture perspective.
— Marc Kielburger, Co-Founder of Free the Children & Me to We
Working with Robert has been incredibly powerful. I cannot tell you the name of the methodology he employed, since he never seemed to be “walking me through the process.” Instead, his guidance was personalized, and he was able to understand my concerns and challenges easily, even though he had no background in my field. I found that our meetings allowed me to step back, look at my work differently, and then move forward with renewed strength and vision. Despite the short period of time it has taken to make changes, I know that they will be lasting. The entire coaching process was both professionally and personally energizing.
— Rabbi Landsberg
Robert is a remarkable business man and a creative genius. Working with him is inspiring.
