Collaboration could be one of the most important skills to students because it mimics real life situations in the work force. Almost ever job people need to collaborate and bring their strengths to the table to complete a project/task.
It's also important to teacher students that Failure is okay. That is how we learn and grow as people. Failure cannot be seen as a negative.
memorization is not a key skill any more because information is at everyone's fingertips.  The important skill is to utilize that information and what you do with it.

Traits are also very important, traits like adaptability and flexibility
