About Us 

The gallery of extraordinary people becoming authentic leaders of themselves and others. 



Ahden Busch PhD. has developed The Impact Method©: Your Zone of Impact for transforming lives into authentic lifestyles for yourself or as an effective leader of others based on 21st C. modern leadership principles and skills.   

The Authentic Leadership Coaching Instutute is the only place to learn online and privately coached about the very specific behaviors of authentic leadership and how to implement the The Impact Method©.

This is a method based on the leading edge thought leaders in science, psychology, and universal wisdom from the business world, spiritual development, scientific evidence, and her own international 10 years of experience.

For example.....

Several entreprueners discovered the art of authentic leadership to attract serious investors by learning to tell their story rather than sell an investment.

Senior managers by discovering how to implement authentic leadership behaviors have been promoted within major global companies by identifying specific traits to refine or change.

A tired President of a $1B mortgage company, re-energized himself to put on his running shoes again (as he said it), and led the company to its next level. 

A President of a rapidly growing financial company learned how to step back and reflect on his mission and then learned how to build a team that reflected who he was instead of just grabbing talent.

A sales person saw his strengths and not arrogantly but authentically built on his strengths and increased his sales as he became more trusted. 

And there are many,many more.


"The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is the lazer focus on extra."

Ahden Busch PhD, Global Executive Communications Coach, has developed ImagesImpact and the Institue to be a leading provider of the most dynamic processes in developing authentic leaders and mastery level communications skills.

We take great pride in offering the most current methods so you learn all the most recent tools, methods, and effective approaches.

We are dedicated to finding, studying, developing and delivering to you what makes you outstanding and erasing roadblocks.

We are unique because of our individualized programs and how we combine the knowledge from Science, Psyshology, and Universal Wisdom. That combination is extremely powerful and influential.

Here is my story:

After defending my PhD dissertaion, entitled The Influence of Images (meaning the way people influence their authentic self through specific behaviors controlled by mental AND physical aspects), I was asked to be part of a sports medicine team at the University of Denver as a Sports Psychologist where we worked exclusively with professional and Olympic athletes.

Athletes at this level are extraordinary in many aspects and what they wanted to discover was additional methods to be better and better.   

The sports physicians worked on the body and I did the mental precesses.  That combination saw marked improvement.

What I learned was how far a person can go with additional knowledge and their own determination. 

That care and focus is what each client receives to stretch to new heights and reach goals by realizing the power of continuous learning. 

I always work with a client as a team.  Clients tell me thank you, thank you, and my response is always "no, we did it as a team."  

I was directly invited by Buckminster Fuller to lead his World Game into corporations, led the first effort bringing together a private/public partnership for enhancing international trade recognized by the US Secretary of Commerce, launched the first international trade mission representing Silicon Valley as a whole (not just a company), brought together and led a group of San Francisco financial and organizational leaders to strengthen trade in the Bay Area,  and other efforts. 

Then my attention went to working with CEO's, Directors, managers, and individuals wanting to lead certain initiatives, redirect their company, deal with difficult situations, or become true leaders but were confused by the demands of the 21st Century. My experience has spanned many cultures from Singapore, India, Malaysia, Panama, Canada, and the US. 

All of these experiences led me to refine the approach that has now been combined into The Authentic Leadership Coaching Institute.
