"This course is an opportunity for anyone wanting to go beyond the typical leadership development course and really go to their next level of being and becoming a great leader. After completing the course I’m more open, decisive, skillful in dealing with emotionally intense interactions and am able to return to presence under pressure and trying conditions as a leader, consultant, coach and in my personal life as a father of three."
- Primitivo G. Rojas-Cheatham, Coach and consultant, Oakland, CA
"I highly recommend LBX as it has been changing my life in so many ways and I can already see the results! The Aurum model delves into the depths of each person and gives tools not only for leadership on the career front, but also tools for every day life. You learn how to step into your power in all relationships. The power that I speak of is empowerment through authenticity, which LBX offers an experience of in a very immersive, experiential way."

"This course is for you if you want excellence in authentic leadership. Likewise, it's not for you if you want strategies to get others to fall in line with your agenda. Expect to challenge yourself, confront your dated habits, and grow in big ways!"
- - Corey Morrow, Organizational Consultant
"So powerful, insightful, practical, and deep at the same time! I feel like I have more useful skills, clarity, and direction having now undertaken the course. I learned more and grew more in those four days than I had in many years of personal development work. It was extremely helpful to interact with a group of like minded individuals as well."

LBX was created by Devi Cavitt Razo and Deepika Sheleff. We have worked for decades designing, leading and facilitating powerful personal growth programs for all types of people.
After being the Director of the Hoffman Process and training Hoffman Teachers internationally for 15 years, Devi teamed up with Deepika, an international somatic coach to found Aurum Leadership International.
We designed a program that is the culmination of decades of leading, training and teaching human development, transformational learning and leadership. We distilled the most potent, effective and empowering things we could offer in a 4-day process - and created LBX.
Our intention is to bring this experience to a broader audience - to people around the world who want to step forward and lead with authenticity and heart. Our vision for this Leadership Breakthrough Training is to distill the best of what we know and do, and bring tremendous gifts to all who participate.
"LBX provided such a nurturing space. There was always respect, love and laughter, it was such a safe space to be honest, and I felt very connected with other participants. I have learned a different way of being, which is more open, honest and accepting of myself and others."
- Vedi Ikezoe, Financial Manager
"I’m happier and more connected, so it’s easier to be who I am. This helps me more easily show up for my family and team. They feel it. I’m more solid and grounded and able to truly be present.
LBX was very effective and on target for what I believe is a better direction to lead from.
It’s working for me."
- Mike Givvin, CEO and president, Blue Frog Embroidery and Screen Printing, San Leandro, CA
"Using the tools that I learned at LBX, I was able to gain the clarity and courage to make an important life and career change. I am now feeling empowered and excited about the new direction of my life.
I am steadily moving forward and making important decisions more swiftly. These tools really work if you work them! I highly recommend this training for anyone who desires to become a more authentic, empowered, and inspiring leader."
- - Marc Morin, entrepreneur and somatic coach
"LBX was a life changing and affirming experience for me. As a business owner, parent and woman, I was in need of some guidance back to my authentic power and strength. I wanted to deepen my work, my relationships and my inner compass.
With their incredible skill and compassion, Devi and Deepika helped us to not only realign us to our innate leadership skills, but created such a bond within the group that the support keeps on long after the training is over. I recommend LBX to anyone who intends to be a more effective leader at work and in their lives. I am looking forward to LBX II."
- Victoria Abel, Founder, Center for Addiction Nutrition, Prescott, Arizona
"LBX was truly a self-discovery and connection process. It was such an incredible opportunity to feel supported in all aspects of life. I am a better person, mother, wife and leader. I see things from a completely different perspective. There is so much opportunity that probably has been right in front of me for years! I feel like this whole new BOOK of my life is JUST STARTING!!
I feel like I am showing up the way I want to for the people in my life - and for myself.
This was truly an amazing experience that touched me on many levels. It was a great mix of interactive and reflection activities. It stood out to me because it was truly a different experience for each participant - almost custom made. Not the typical "training" on leadership I have attended in the past."
- Alicia Stiving, Director of Training, ServiceMaster, Concord, CA
"LBX is very simple and elegant yet comprehensive and powerful. I appreciate the mix of theoretic and somatic aspects and the pragmatic quality of the materials. I feel lighter and more at ease, more grounded and certain. Even weeks later I can feel that an inner shift occurred that makes it easier for me to get back into whole, true self."
- - Jairo Wilches, San Rafael, CA
"Aurum's leadership breakthrough training was a wonderful experience.
Rather than just being "heady" lectures on management skills or an inauthentic cheerleader-fest of "you can do it" mantras, LBX was innovative in that it gave me access to my own sense of personal leadership from the bottom-up.
I gained a number of insights about how I show up in different situations, and feel better suited to handle challenges from a more grounded and authentic sense of self. I highly recommend LBX to anyone who wants to discover their own inner leader, and to feel more empowered and grounded in pursuing life's challenges."
- David Javate, MFT intern and Mindfulness Teacher
"LBX is an empowering, grounding, and inspiring workshop that I would recommend to anyone and everyone! I walked away feeling re-connected to myself, fully supported, and ready to make some challenging decisions in my life.
LBX is incredibly tangible and accessible to anyone who wants to invite change into their life and feel more connected, more authentic, and more real. Devi and Deepika are amazing and remarkable women who are passionate about the work they are doing. I felt so heard, seen, and taken care of throughout the entire process. I can't wait for the next one!"
- Rachael Freedman, Operations Manager
"I loved participating in Aurum’s LBX workshop. LBX has brought me back to my true self in a way I have not experienced before. My ability to lead others has been profoundly impacted and in turn I am able to share my new skills with those around me. I feel more at ease in my daily life; I feel better able to handle upsets; I feel deeply connected to myself in a very loving and healthy way."
- Susan Jentzsch, Business Strategist
