It may have been written back in 1996, but its observations are as true today for those leading schools. Charles Handy's "Beyond Certainty", gives us food for thought in what we need to bring to schools and young people.

A good education
Exposure to positive role models
Ethics and values
Self-development and an enquiring mind
Last, but not least a problem solving culture.
