In today’s episode of Small-Time Leaders, Deb Lewis shares with us how Mr. Chavez noticed her hard moments when nobody else did and took it upon himself to cheer her up. Deb Lewis joined the military in the early stages of women in uniform and it was not easy. While Mr. Chavez worked as a waiter in the dining area, he started placing desserts at Deb’s table continuously which got her to smile every time. It was years later that Deb realized how much of a great impact that small gesture was able to help her throughout the cadet years. Listen to this episode to learn more about how observing and taking action can encourage someone long-term.
