REIS, Germano Glufke  e  NAKATA, Lina Eiko. The Transtheoretical Model of Change: Contributions to executive coaching. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2010, vol.11, n.1, pp. 61-72. ISSN 1984-7270.

Executive coaching has been widely employed in organizations. Although there is a growing number of practitioners in this market, there is still a substantial lack of theoretical models and research in it. Because of this, some authors have argued for a need of supporting the coaching process on more consistent and empirically tested evidences, even through the embodiment of already existing knowledge, from the behavioral and social sciences. Besides that, behavioral change has been a recurrent theme in many coaching processes, even when based on distinct approaches. In this context, some authors have suggested that the Transtheoretical Model of Change be adapted for the coaching process, both for its focusing on behavioral changes and for being supported by substantial empirical research. This model includes the six stages that take place in every process of behavioral change: precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance, and termination. This theoretical article analyzes possible contributions and limitations of the model, when applied to executive coaching.
