In their ongoing efforts to support non-profits in their community, ActionCOACH Team Sage, a part of the global ActionCOACH organization, has chosen to contribute their coaching services to two worthwhile non-profits in the South Florida area – A Safe Haven for Newborns and Shake A Leg Miami.

CORAL GABLES – In their ongoing efforts to support non-profits in their community, ActionCOACH Team Sage, a part of the global ActionCOACHorganization, has chosen to contribute their coaching services to two worthwhile non-profits in the South Florida area – A Safe Haven for Newborns and Shake A Leg Miami.

ActionCOACH’s Coaching for a Cause is a far-reaching, global pro-bono coaching program that helps non-profits and charities from all walks of life increase their top-level goals and better manage their funds through a simple pledge system. 

The program is designed to bring the proven and systemized business building methodology ActionCOACHuses to help for-profit business owners run better companies – to the non-profit, not-for-profit and charitable sector of communities in which we work and live. Each week, a local ActionCOACH meets with and coaches a local organization on the issues and challenges that constrain their growth and ability to deliver services to those in need.

Doug Barra, Firm Owner and Certified Business Coach, and Catherine MacAskill, Certified Business Coach, made their choices based on their interest in the respective causes they will be supporting, as well as their belief that their particular coaching skills are a good fit.

Barra, who has five years’ coaching experience and has won numerous awards in the profession, will coach Shake A Leg Miami.  Their Mission is to use the marine environment to improve the health, education, independence and quality of life for all with an emphasis on individuals with physical, developmental and economic challenges. “Shake A Leg Miami makes a wonderful impact on people’s lives,” Barra said. “It is an honor to help strengthen such a fine organization.”

MacAskill, who joined ActionCOACH recently after spending time as a client of the organization, will coach A Safe Haven for Newborns, which assists at-risk pregnant girls and mothers.  Safe Haven provides a 24/7 multilingual, statewide referral helpline to assist pregnant girls/women in crisis.   “The young women who are helped by A Safe Haven for Newborns are at a crucial moment in their lives,” MacAskill said. “I am very excited to make a positive contribution to the them and the people who are so dedicated to helping them.”

ActionCOACH recently received two Platinum Awards for the Coaching for a Cause Program.
