Dr. Darrell Burnett – Conflict Resolution

Dr. Darrell Burnett, Ph.D., is a sports psychologist, father of three, former Little League® Coach, and was long-time member of the Little League International Board of Directors. “Being a successful manager or coach is not necessarily reflected in the win-loss column of your team,” said Dr. Burnett. “The ultimate measure is whether your players end up the season seeing themselves as winners regardless of their place in the standings.” According to Dr. Burnett, being able to successfully diffuse emotional strife is a critical skill that any successful administrator, manager, or coach has to develop over time. To help local district staff members and local league officials with learning these techniques, he offers these proven methods for conflict resolution.
