Grow more than you dare to imagine. Benefit from bespoke support and direction on all aspects of your leadership, and transform your performance. The Elite Performance Programme is our flagship coaching programme for senior leaders, and is particularly valuable if you're going through a career transition such as a C-suite succession, working through a board nomination, operating in a new environment, or driving complex organisational change.

It transforms the behaviours of high-potential individuals by giving undivided access to our most experienced performance directors, who curate your personal leadership journey. Following an in-depth, diagnostic session with your lead performance director, we devise a bespoke learning journey over 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. This is designed to meet both your immediate needs, such as high-profile speeches and media appearances, and your long-term leadership goals and aspirations.

The rigour of your programme is ensured by your lead performance director and other RADA Business tutors and experts, who enrich your capabilities, skills and overall experience. Examples of additional expertise include anatomical voice work, sessions dedicated to strategy, and role-play actors who simulate your business environment.

Further details
