The winners at tigers second annual golf day

We recently hosted our second annual golf day

It was a day enjoyed by all as we welcomed friends and partners of tigers back to Douglas Park Golf Club in September. We hosted our first golf day in 2019 but due to the Covid-19 pandemic we had to postpone the 2020 event.

Having been two years since we took to the course it was great to see everyone’s swing was looking as good as we remembered and were able to enjoy themselves on the way round the immaculate course.

Helping Hackathon

Earlier this year tigers partnered with the Hope Collective to host a Hackathon in Glasgow, one of five hacks taking place all over the UK throughout the year to bring young people together from various communities, where they'll work with each other to generate ideas and to explore and develop innovative solutions to societal challenges.

To support this cause, we hosted a nearest the pin challenge, asking £5 entry with the winner splitting the £200 pot with the Hackathon.

After a competitive day on the course, our guests enjoyed a lovely meal as the scores of the days stableford competition were calculated. We were delighted to be able to hand out prizes to the days winners… and losers.

Supporting people to develop their infinite potential

Tigers group are now offering support to our team, partners, children and young people through calming tigers and authentic tigers

Here at tigers, we’re passionate about supporting people to develop their infinite potential. We care deeply about creating an environment that allows every individual to bring their authentic self into the workplace.

We are excited to launch two new brands, calming tigers & authentic tigers, both of which will be crucial to making this vision a reality. Both brands will allow us to support not only our team, but also children, young people, schools and partners with wellbeing and life coaching programmes.

Emotional Health Self Awareness – calming tigers

Raising self-awareness of how we carry stress and anxiety, calming tigers supports adults and children to move towards calmness using a collection of body-based techniques. We have a shared belief that we’re all deserving of knowing our own value and self-worth. Our sessions promote empathy, resilience, kindness, and connection to build a strong mindset and body.

Calming tigers was developed in-house during lockdown and we recognised immediate benefits across our team. It then seemed a natural progression to take this solution to our wider community, partners, and organisations.

Our Wellbeing Coordinator Aisling Bent is leading calming tigers. Here is why she does it:

“My passion came from my own journey and my subsequent desire to help the Lullaby Lane Nurseries team manage daily anxieties. After years of using meditation for my own benefit as a relaxation technique, I decided to train as a mindfulness coach to assist others on their journey of relaxation and increase their ability to de-stress.”

Programmes offered by calming tigers:

  • Mindfulness
  • Yoga
  • Positive Touch
  • Laughter Therapy
  • Wellbeing Days

Transformational Coaching – authentic tigers

Authentic tigers life coaching sessions, workshops and events align with our vision to reduce barriers and help others to develop their infinite potential.

We do this by offering a range of accelerated personal development solutions using rapid transformation tools, techniques and strategies.

The service will coach individuals and teams using neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and other therapies to analyse how we organise our thinking, feelings, language, and behaviour and retrospectively our emotional intelligence to create successful outcomes.

Our Learning & Development Igniter, David Howie, is leading the development of authentic tigers. In 2008 he became a qualified Practitioner and in 2021 a Master Practitioner in NLP and other therapies. Here is why:

“After many years seeking the solution to my own battles with mental health I was introduced to neuro-linguistic programming. The real positive impact helped me to deal with life's challenges in a more balanced manner. From here, I developed an internal ‘must’ to help others to see life through a different lens and achieve more of what they want in life. People deserve to live life beyond limits.”

Programmes offered by authentic tigers:

  • One-to-One Personal or Professional Coaching
  • Personal or Professional Breakthrough Day Experience
  • Team Stress Management & Development Days
  • Goal Setting Sessions
  • Time-Line Therapy Sessions
  • Supreme Self Confidence Days
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): Communication Skills Days & NLP basics.

“We strongly believe that we have a responsibility to create a culture that is safe and secure and encourages our team to bring their “whole self to work”. The introduction of calming tigers and authentic tigers has enabled us to do this. We are delighted that we are now able to offer these initiatives to our wider community to help inspire and support them to develop their infinite potential.”
