At the risk of sounding arrogant, why don't people write articles about
how to teach stupid and/or lazy people how to learn? I find it remarkably
refreshing when I can work with "smart people" who value learning, even if
they're not concerned with organizational learning. But working with
people who have no desire to learn. . .well, that drains me.

Anyone know of any good stuff on how to help people with no desire to
learn, learn to have a desire to learn?
