This research aimed to develop coaching process based on transformative learning theory for changing the mindset about instruction of elementary school teachers. Tools used in this process include mindset tests and questionnaires designed to assess the instructional mindset of teachers and to allow the teachers to reflect on how they perceive themselves and their role as educators. Additionally, in accordance with the transformative process, guidance is provided to improve their instructional mindset. Because validation and verification are an essential aspect of the transformative process, the tests and questionnaires that were developed have been reviewed by nine experts resulting in a validity of 97% and 81%. The feedback and recommendations from the experts was applied to the improvement of the tests, questionnaires and teacher's guidance. The revised material was administered to seventy elementary school teachers, resulting in reliability scores of 76%, 82%, and 87%, demonstrating the tests' ability to separate the strong and weak teachers. Consequently, it was found that a coaching process based on transformative learning theory for changing the mindset in instruction of elementary school teachers, implemented within the context of the teacher's own place of work through learning experiences, thorough thinking, best practices, and teacher's interaction, allowed them to change their mindset which was evidenced in their behaviors.
