Lifestyle Magazine TV Features Ombuds

The weekly, syndicated TV series featured Tom Kosakowski as a guest this week on the topic of dispute resolution. The half-hour talk show is carried on TBN in 450 markets and is also available on the web.

Here's the description of the episode:
Conflict happens in everyone’s life. We all have disagreements from time to time with a spouse, family member, maybe even a friend. But how do you find a resolution to that argument? Today we’ll offer you some ways to find a win-win, and possibly avoid that argument altogether. Our guest, conflict resolution expert, Thomas Kosakowski, Ombudsperson from UCLA Health Sciences, shares how to deal with conflicts in the workplace.
