This book makes leading edge skills from the personal development and conflict resolution fields available for those seeking to assist successful political change at the grassroots level. In working with numerous political change organizations over the years, and training workers from groups such as Greenpeace New Zealand and the New Zealand Peace Foundation, I have an increasing sense of the importance of sharing the NLP skills for personal resilience and conflict management.

Transforming Communication: The Manual book by Dr Richard Bolstad

 Transforming Communication manual book

In 2013, Stanford Business School asked over 200 CEOs and Senior Executive Officers what they needed outside help for more than anything else. Their answer: managing conflicts. “When you are in the CEO role, most things that come to your desk only get there because there is a difficult decision to be made – which often has some level of conflict associated with it.” they explain.

If you're a manager (of a business, a classroom or a home), you don't always have the luxury of stable and peaceful relationships. You need to be able to create rapport and resolve disagreements fast, so you can get on with what you do best.

The Transforming Communication course teaches you how to do that, and this is its manual, as used by certified Transforming Communication Instructors across the world.

Integration: NLP and Spirituality book by Dr Richard Bolstad and Julia Kurusheva

 Integration book

This is a book which applies a groundbreaking new way of thinking to an ancient truth. The new way of thinking is called Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP. It is the study of how successful people use their brains to achieve the results they do. It provides tools for working out how some people are so good at achieving the life results they want, and then tools for learning how to do that yourself. This way of thinking is also used in coaching, education, health care, and business. The ancient truth is that life is one indivisible unity. To actually experience this truth is bliss; it is to have a profound sense of the perfection of this moment and to treasure all that exists in it. It is to understand that love binds together all of life and all of time, and that we emerge out of this love.

Combining NLP and Spirituality gives you the practical understandings and tools to touch what all human beings are seeking. In this book are a series of guided processes which invite you beyond ordinary consciousness, and which allow you to step out of the limitations of the past and experience the one great truth.

Creating A Cooperative World book by Dr Richard Bolstad

 Creating a Cooperative World book

This book is a product of a unique and important time in history, the time when the use of violence and war as the primary method of resolving conflict is coming to an end. As a symptom of this time in world history, more and more people are learning new ways of responding to conflict; ways that neither avoid conflict, nor escalate it into aggression; ways that genuinely resolve conflict and create cooperation. This book is based on the Transforming Communication training, which Dr Richard Bolstad developed. In his own country of New Zealand, this training has been used as a core module in teaching medical practitioners, nurses, priests and ministers of the churches, counsellors, coaches and teachers. It is used to train high school students as peer mediators, and to train University staff for their work in both the classroom and office. It has been used to train the top management of Government departments and staff in banks, large international trading organisations and oil companies. The same skills can be adapted to work in all these different situations, and in every culture. Richard has personally taught it to Government functionaries in Beijing, Managers in Tokyo, School Boards in the United States, Government members and police in the Pacific Islands of Samoa, Trainers in Poland and many other groups.
