Summary/Abstract: Executive coaching has seen a real expansion worldwide due to a new approach of management in the age of information. It is an efficiently used method within organizations, with a view to inspiring top managers in implementing and ascertaining changes in the behavior of those around them, in order to initiate and uphold changes in the organization and improve results. This article proposes two levels of analysis from the viewpoint of the implementation of coaching, and executive coaching respectively, in organizations, throughout the changing process: the analysis of individual perceptions and their effects among employees as well as the institutional, structural, approach of change at the level of the human resources in the organization, mentioning risks that can often be noticed in Romanian organizations. The last part describes the perspectives from which mindful change is seen at the level of an organization, by describing the theory of mindful change meant to facilitate the interpretation and understanding of the way in which both people and organizations can approach change. This theory is instrumental in the coaching process. The final part of the work lines up a series of conclusions in approaching organizational change through the coaching process.
