Have the confidence to be more effective at work everyday.

How to increase your confidence and effectiveness in your working life via essential training and a network providing advice and support.

Is this you?

  • Are you a busy non-profit manager, juggling lots of different priorities and feeling that you’re stretched too thin?
  • Working on different projects as well as managing expectations of peers, your team, senior management and supporters?
  • You have plans to make a big impact but you're never able to carve out real thinking time and worry that it's impacting on your progress and resilience.
  • Do you ever feel a bit lonely and out of energy, confidence and inspiration?

If your work is anything to do with solving problems and making change happen you can often feel on your own, even with a team around you. If you don’t have a safe and trusted support network it’s common for confidence to take a knock. That uneasy feeling creeps in and you feel vulnerable. You put undue pressure on yourself to produce a quick win or something that will work.

You don’t ask your own director or Chief Executive for support because they’re relying on you to be the expert and confident in your role. You know it’s OK to be vulnerable, yet the fear of appearing incompetent or inadequate stops you from asking for help. For similar reasons you don’t always feel safe to ask your peer group for help.

This is why I set up the Lucidity Network.

‘If you’re looking make a change in your working life I highly recommend the Lucidity Network to help you think through what you want to do and give you the support and confidence to do it. I've been a member of the Lucidity Network since it first started and have always found the content to be thought-provoking, practical and inspiring. It was a real lifeline to me recently whilst looking for a new role and was great to be able to connect with interesting people outside of my usual networks. '

'When you are working from home and are not part of a team you can miss being part of something, that's what Lucidity Network does for me. "I’ve  always toyed with the idea of coaching but when you are a fundraiser, not earning a fortune, it's an expensive thing to do. That’s why the group coaching that’s included in the membership is so valuable.  I came away from the session feeling energised, confident and part of something. There was a real team spirit.'

Hello, I'm Lucy Gower

I'm a trainer, facilitator and coach and founder of the Lucidity Network. I've worked with hundreds of managers and leaders like you, helping them build their confidence to think creatively, solve problems and be more effective at work.

In 2012 decided to leave a full time role as a charity innovation manager. I had learned first hand how difficult it can be to manage expectations and egos, wade through organisational treacle, keep resilient and make progress. I thought I might be able to make a bigger difference taking what I had learned as an innovation manger and using my skills to support others to navigate the complexities of implementing change. Having a trusted person to discuss problems and provide an outside perspective is valuable because it's so very difficult to think clearly and find solutions to problems when you're close to them.

For years I kept seeing the same patterns blocking my clients progress. The organisational treacle was sticky, feelings of overwhelm and lack of focus were creeping in and getting in the way of progress. That was often followed by a lack of internal support leading to dips in confidence to making any sort of change. And finally people just ran out of steam and when you’re exhausted it's hard to make progress.

In 2018 I decided to take all my knowledge and practical experience and find a way to help more managers and leaders just like you to achieve success. That's what the Lucidity Network is, a community offering support and bite-sized training to help more managers and leaders make progress. Many more people can get support through online learning tools and via a network of expertise than I could ever offer on a one to one basis. When you join the Lucidity Network you get support to manage overwhelm, tools to help you build your confidence and resilience, think creatively to solve problems as well as an injection of motivation and accountability to ensure you make progress.

According to The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report 2021, the top skills and skill groups which employers are looking for today and in the future include creative thinking, critical thinking and analysis, as well as problem-solving and skills in self-management, such as active learning, resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility. Research by LinkedIn has found that the top skill that companies are looking for overall is creativity. Lucidity Network members are learning these skills now and at the same time in an uncertain world, reducing their risk and increasing their opportunity for success in their future working life.

The Lucidity Network is where I spend much of my time alongside facilitating workshops and team days, running training on innovation, storytelling and creativity skills and facilitating mastermind groups. I love helping people to focus on the important work and build their confidence to make change happen. If you've got any questions about the Lucidity Network drop me a line at hello@lucidity.org.uk.

'I have benefitted from brilliant webinars and toolkits, and accessed advice and insight from an incredible network of people. 


'I joined the Lucidity Network as I wanted to make a personal investment in my learning and development, to ready myself for a leadership role within the small charity sector. I loved the mixed bag of goodies on offer that I could dip in and out of and the idea of connecting with a network of professionals. When I was on maternity leave in 2020 I found the network invaluable for a positive return to work as I was able to continue developing my knowledge and skills.  I’ve since taken on a Chief Exec role with a small charity and I look forward to further engaging with the network and support on offer, to thrive in my new role’

'It's given me the courage to talk about my strengths and help others around me'
The Lucidity Network has helped me loads. Reading other people's input on the Facebook Group is great for seeing what other people are up against. And, I had some great advice after posting questions on there. Plus, those leadership books I've been reading as part of the book club have given me the courage, knowledge and the language to talk about what my strengths are and help others around me. The webinars around managing up, coaching and creativity and what I have done at work, as a result, have all played a part in my progress so far - thank you.’

'It has made me feel a lot more on top of things.'
'I wanted to say how good the ‘learning to say no’ webinar was last week. A standout piece of information for me was about saying ‘yes…if’ which has changed my way of thinking since and has made me feel a lot more on top of things. I have been raving about the webinar to the team too!'

What others have asked before joining the Lucidity Network

I can’t afford it
If you want to take charge of your confidence and effectiveness at work you have to prioritise YOU. The Lucidity Network is designed to be an affordable way to do this - if YOU really want to. It's £37 a month or £370 a year. It's the equivalent of a couple of coffee shop coffees a week. It's your choice of course but if you want to kick-start your own development and get some better results for yourself then it's a steal.  

I really want to join, but I can't persuade my manager it's a good idea Is that because they have no budget? Can you be creative about which budget line it comes from? Will your manager sign it off as a test? We are so confident that the Lucidity Network makes a difference to your results that if you take the actions that we recommend and after 3 months see no benefit we’ll give you your money back. Some managers have joined their whole team!

I can’t buy online I need an invoice
That’s no problem, drop an email to
hello@lucidity.org.uk and we’ll arrange an invoice for you.  

I'm so busy at work I don't know how I will find the time
This is a challenge for many Lucidity Network members. That's why we run 2 hour 'get it done' sessions every fortnight to help give yourself permission to carve out time to think and prioritise your thinking.

What if there isn't anyone from my industry or sector in the membership? It’s a good thing! The mix of diverse experience, and different people and sectors is part of the Lucidity Network’s value. Plus if you’d like to invite more people from your sector ask us about our recommend a friend offers by emailing hello@lucidity.org.uk. 

I’ve not done anything like this before Try the Lucidity Network for 3 months as a test. If you take the actions that we recommend and get no benefit we’ll give you your money back. Sometimes with something new you’ll only really know if it’s for you if you give it a go. 

I’m not on Facebook so I’ll lose out The Facebook Community is a big part of the Lucidity Network. It’s the place to connect directly with other members, ask questions and learn. It might be worth considering setting up a Facebook profile just to interact with the Lucidity Network. However if you choose not to, you still get all the content including downloads, webinars and events where there's opportunities to connect to other Lucidity Network members.  

What happens if the topics aren't what I need?
We pick topics based on what we know can have a big impact on peoples results based on our skills and experience. We also ask the Network, what their biggest problems are as well as what they think they need on a regular basis to ensure that our topics are relevant. You can get in touch at any point with topic suggestions at
hello@lucidity.org.uk

My membership of the Lucidity Network has been a fabulous experience from start to finish.

What have I got out of it? Skills, knowledge and an ever-growing network that's open minded, positive and supportive. Within the six months I've been a member I've progressed to a CEO role with  six direct reports. I've found the sessions such as Q & A, 'Get it Done' and the first of the month check in particularly helpful. Through these, I've experienced the support of both the group and Lucy herself, absorbing some incredible skills which help me in my current role. Lucidity has been a key element in my progression and I would wholeheartedly recommend membership to anyone looking to invest in themselves and achieve their dreams.
