About Kris de Jong

I’m an experienced and certified Auckland executive life coach, career coach and wealth coach, focused on getting real results for my clients.

Kris de Jong

Kris de JongI was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and have travelled extensively overseas. I’m now happily living in the city of sails.

Having represented NZ in athletics, I know the great feeling of accomplishment that can be achieved when you reach your goals.

I studied at the University of Waikato, completing a BSc in Biology and Psychology. I was later certified in Cognitive Behavioural Coaching and Professional Life Coaching. I’m also a Certified Practitioner of  the Global Leadership Assessment 360 (GLA360). Recently I’ve become a co-founding ambassador for Prox.io, a global virtual knowledge exchange platform.

As a member of the International Association of Coaches (IAC), I adhere to a code of ethics that promotes a professional and respectful relationship between coach and client at all times.

I’ve managed large and diverse teams over the years, while building my coaching and mentoring skills. My experience in HR, recruitment, performance and people management allows me to optimise employee coaching for organisations looking to improve workplace wellbeing.

I’ve also been actively involved in Toastmasters, developing communication and leadership skills and gaining advanced certification. I loved helping others achieve their goals, while presenting numerous speeches on a wide variety of topics.

Good friends are important to me, and I enjoy writing, travelling, cooking, movies, music, pub quizzes, keeping fit, and investing in NZ businesses.

After achieving financial freedom at 40, I founded Eclipse Life Coaching, as I’m passionate about coaching and helping great people to get what they want in life.
