Nice to meet you! My name is Dale Burt.

I work with people at all levels of an organization including employees, managers, and senior leaders–in both unionized and nonunionized environments. The effective management of conflict at work is shown to correlate with reduced stress, greater happiness and satisfaction, increased morale and productivity, a greater sense of mental well-being, improved work relationships, and even better sleep!
It is my goal to be the trusted professional you turn to for resolving and preventing conflict in your workplace.
With a personalized and caring approach, I am committed to earning my clients’ trust and respect. I help to navigate the workplace conflict that can hold employees back, stress them out, and reduce their productivity. Let’s change that! If you have any questions about me or my services, feel free to contact me without obligation.
