Meet instructor Kevin Lychak in our first Highlighting the Staff of Motive Action interview!

For fun, some of our staff agreed to be interviewed for our Blog. See what Instructor Kevin Lychak had to say:

What do you like best about working at Motive Action?  What does it mean to you?

Working at Motive Action is a new experience with every new group that comes in, considering the challenges of working with people from everywhere with a variety of issues. Together, the staff that I work with and I, we absolutely make a huge difference in our clients’ lives directing them towards their ambitions to become Auto Body/ Automotive/ Heavy Duty Technicians and Welders.   I think my favorite day is the passing through ceremony. It is a bit sad to see all the faces of the students that have worked so hard to reach this day leave us, but I have many wonderful visits from past successful students coming in to say hi as well as a whole new group of strangers to work with as a team towards their success. I have been employed with Motive Action for just under twenty years and never dealt with exactly the same issue twice. It may seem like a long time but it is not when every day is new!

What is a fun fact most people don’t know about you?

Geeez -  ok. I don’t let anyone fold my laundry because they won’t fold my t-shirts so that I can see the logo on the front of them!

What is your dream car/truck/vehicle?

This is an easy question. I love all vehicles, just some more than others. They really are wonderful machines with endless options.

What is your favourite hobby?

 I think all who know me know that my all-time favorite hobby is fishing. I can spend many hours getting ready for a weekend fishing trip tying my new “magic” hooks and preparing for another adventure-fish or no fish!

What advice would you give in times of stress, such as the self-isolation we are facing now with the pandemic?

Now is the time to sit down and write down all of the things you have been wanting to do around the house and yard. Pick one or two a day, take your time and do a really good job on them cause…..you got the time!!

Any other comments?

I feel very lucky to work with the team we have at Motive Action. Thank you all very much!!
