Abstract: The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the new international economy. The information age, the internet, along with e-commerce, e-communication, and e-learning are changing the way businesses and workers interact, communicate and problem solve. The challenges of these multitude of demands on today’s workers has greatly altered our traditional knowledge of the world of work. Vocational educators and trainers worldwide are now faced with a myriad of training challenges. Perhaps the most salient challenge is the understanding and communicating (teaching) of a work ethic suitable for the workplace of this new age.
