During the program, on-the-job training is offered in three, six-month rotations throughout the Southwest system. The program’s structure helps highly motivated participants learn about Southwest’s diverse business, our distinctive Culture, and our People-first mentality.
Participants motivate teams, develop others, and implement strategies that positively impact our business. Our future Leaders also work to hone their leadership skills, and have great exposure to our Senior Leaders, who engage by providing their time, feedback, and advice.
Following the successful completion of the rotation, participants are placed in an Operations Leadership role that aligns with their strengths, professional goals, and our business need.
ELDP classes begin in January and July.
