Rock Solid 


For top leaders who want to (re)build their leadership on a perfectly solid foundation

"Don’t change the fruit, change the root"

Let's (re)build your leadership on a perfectly solid foundation.

Nice to meet you!


My vision

Leadership has to be taken over every area of your life. I like to compare people with trees: it’s impossible for one branch to blossom while another is dying. The tree fully blossoms or it doesn’t. The branches represent the roles you have, your role as a leader, partner and parent. All are connected. When your company is thriving but your marriage – health – friendships – family – community is dying, you cannot blossom. When you don’t blossom, your company won’t blossom. The impact of one dying branch is invisible and untouchable but undeniable.  

I have been working with leaders over the past four years. I haven’t helped one leader where the branches weren’t connected. Sometimes it seemed as a miracle: processing something in one’s personal life translated into their business growth of any kind (and vice versa).

I help Executives Leaders of corporate companies (re)build their foundation: the roots of their tree. By building a strong and perfect foundation you enable the tree to fully blossom again. You built something steady, no storm will ever ruin. My name is Anouk Schaap and I am looking forward in serving you and your company.

Strategic thinking is one of my strengths. It enables me to trace the root cause of your business or leadership challenge and to help you to turn it around. My loved ones describe me as constructively honest, creative and compassionate. These traits mark my work as Executive Mentor, Trainer and Public Speaker. My toolkit exists of a surprising variety: research – experience and most importantly Biblical principles. I built my leadership and business on the Rock of Ages in order to help you (re)building yours.

What Clients Say

"Thank you for pushing me, for pushing my boundaries. You were a guide and a huge help. Thank you for helping me to open up. I didn't know I needed it, but it freed me and it made a huge impact. At the beginning I felt overwhelmed and I could't make time to reflect, knowing the importance of reflecting, I am now able to reflect with ease and happy to make time for it."


Florian - CEO from Berlin

Level Up Your Event

Climbing the stage is one of my favorite things to do, not because I want to be in the spotlights but because I have a mission to accomplish: challenging your (business’) take on leadership and (re)building the foundation you lead from.


Don’t change the fruit, change the root. I like to address the topics you tempt to avoid, expect challenging questions and a surprising new take on leadership. I combine research and my experience as Executive Mentor with a Biblical approach towards leadership. My vision is for leading companies who are open and curious to truth.


My clients know me for my warm but honest sharpness, strategic thinking combined with creativity and an authentic approach towards future-proof leadership. Each talk is different, my mission remains the same.


A tiny peek in some of my favorite themes:

  • How ownership leads to true leadership

  • The boardroom vision for 2030

  • Why leadership fails without a perfectly solid foundation

Curious how I will take your event to the next level? Book an appointment.

The Four Pillars

Rock Solid Leadership is built upon four pillars:


"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." 

"Honor those in authority." Respect is a two way street. It is about you honoring those who are in authority over you. At the same time it is about being respected. I believe this last part is a huge challenge in today's society and business and one of the causes of 'bad' leadership. 


Being honest is nothing but liberating. I encourage you to practice speaking the truth at home and in the office - while applying love and respect at the same time.


"The truth will set you free." Want to know where the wisdom of King Solomon, the perseverance of Martin Luther King and the peace and patience of Nelson Mandela came from? Let's meet, I will tell you all about it!
