If the students are/have lost their will and/or desire to learn, perhaps it's the CI and/or its instructors that have already lost their will and/or desire first. Attitude reflects leadership.

Desire is something that's wanted. Will is something that someone already has. For example, desire means wanting something that's tangible so bad, like a Rolex or a swimming pool. Will is the strength and condition you have to start something and follow it through, to take action.

That black belt wrapped around the CI and/or its instructors' waist doesn't avoid their responsibilities and accountability to their Student Body. Before the fingers can be pointed to any student(s), the CI and company need to analyze themselves first and foremost.

If afterwards, well, there's really not afterwards because the school's atmosphere must be conducive to learning, and that responsibility belongs to the CI and company.

Yes, the student must have that will to learn, and some students lack that will to learn for one reason or another whether they be personal and/or professional. Then that might be the time to release the students' obligations until that will returns.

There's that fine line drawn in the sand, and oftentimes the CI and company flirt with that line, at which point are the CI and company culpable. Remember, pride comes before the fall.

Imho.

Attitude effects leadership; truer words have not been spoken. I think it can become a challenge at times, when you spend day after day at the dojo, teaching what may seem like the same stuff you've taught for years. An instructor must make sure that they keep things fresh for themselves, and realize that what is old for them, is new for many.
