Drucker, P. F. (1993).  The Effective Executive.
"These are not the things most people have in mind when they talk about the strengths and weaknesses of a man. They usually mean knowledge of a discipline or talent in an art. But temperament is also a factor in accomplishment and a big one. An adult usually knows quite a bit about his own temperament. To be effective he builds on what he knows he can do and does it in the way he has found out he works the best." (p. 98)
Buckingham, M., & Clifton D. O. (2001).  Now, Discover Your Strengths.
"These are the two assumptions that guide the world's best managers:
1. Each person's talents are enduring and unique.
2. Each person's greatest room for growth is in the areas of his or her greatest strength." (p. 8)
