Short Line Safety Institute: Positive Perceptions of Leadership Development Training
The Short Line Safety Institute (SLSI) offers a Leadership Development Training (LDT) for interested short line railroads. An assessment of the current training program allows SLSI to learn from its past participants and to continually make improvements to best serve short line and regional railroads across the United States. SLSI conducted an analysis of feedback surveys that were provided to participants in its Leadership Development Training. Across all 218 feedback surveys, more than 97% of participants rated the program activities as valuable, as a worthwhile investment in their career development, and would recommend the program to a colleague in the railroad industry. Participants also provided SLSI with suggestions for improving the program.
