Transforming Communication: The Manual book by Dr Richard Bolstad
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.

The Training Secrets of NLP book by Dr Richard Bolstad
For NLP Trainers and others who want to Train Using NLP Skills: At last, the book that gives out all the "secrets" of NLP training that are not taught in normal teacher trainings… from use of metaphors in training to creating clear descriptions of jargon terms; from marketing a training to organising assistants; from building rapport in a group to accelerated memory devices, from delivering powerful breakthrough experiences like a firewalk to playing learning games. This book is written firstly for NLP Trainers. A thorough introduction to NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) for teachers new to it is also included, so you can start taking advantage of these powerful skills right now, whatever your previous experience of the subject. Written by an internationally respected trainer who has taught NLP at Practitioner, Master Practitioner and Trainer level with the International Association of NLP. This book was written as a text for the NLP Trainer Training itself, and expanded to give these skills to the widest possible audience. Each chapter delivers you another dramatic clue to the kind of motivational training that international training superstars have learned from NLP.

The Rapport Based Family book by Dr Richard Bolstad
The Rapport Based Family is the family that you were planning to create, where your children cooperate and respect your opinions, where they are happy and successful in their school life and at home. It’s the family where you and your partner create a loving relationship that endures throughout your life, and that you look forward to coming home to. Unfortunately, the realistic stresses of the twenty-first century sometimes make that family seem hard to imagine. Instead of general ideas, The Rapport Based Family gives you precise skills, based on research and tested in thousands of successful families around the world. With several real-life stories from parents like you as inspirations, this book sets you a ten day program to create that family. There is no success more satisfying than the one you are about to have.
Dr Richard Bolstad is a qualified teacher, nurse, psychotherapist, PET Instructor and NLP Trainer. He is also a father and a grandfather. Richard regularly teaches parents how to create a Rapport Based Family in New Zealand, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. The other parents whose stories fill this guide are amongst hundreds of trainers of this "Transforming Communication" method in cities across the globe.

"The skills described in this book came into our life like a breath of fresh air. As I learned them I had a mixture of excitement and hope of a solution to what seemed like an insurmountable situation. These skills are effective and in using the skills you can trust your children will become adults with a high value of cooperative communication" Pauline Young, coach and Transforming Communication trainer, Auckland, New Zealand

Integration: NLP and Spirituality book by Dr Richard Bolstad and Julia Kurusheva
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.
"Prior to Integration, I had heard people talking about spirituality, and like many I found myself unable to describe, in real terms, what it is. Integration has provided the structure and process for spirituality, which now makes it real for me."" Pauline Young, Coach. "Chi kung exercises and NLP processes that took me to the state of "being"". If you are seeking enlightenment read this!" - Chris Lampard, Business Trainer

Creating A Cooperative World book by Dr Richard Bolstad
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.
