Tell me about a Steve Jobs, and I can show you a Steve Wozniak. Show me a Bishop T. D. Jakes, and I can introduce you to a Pastor Lawrence Robinson. Explain to me the magnitude of the Civil Rights Movement lead by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and I can talk to you about Dr. Ralph Abernathy and Bayard Rustin. Brag about the greatness of President Abraham Lincoln, and I would dare you to research William Seward. If the greatest basketball player of all times is Michael Jordan, then I would say he never won a ring until Scottie Pippen matured as his sidekick. You love Jerry Lewis, but I respect Dean Martin. Get the picture? It may take one to lead a great organization, but it takes two to make it out of sight. My objective in writing this book is a dual one. I want to help senior leaders (whom I refer to as 1s) understand the need for having quality executive support leaders on their team and how to find them. And I want to inspire and encourage those who serve in executive leadership support roles (whom I affectionately refer to as 2men, or 2s) to embrace their uniqueness in helping lead their organizations from the second, third, or fourth chair. I am motivated because I am tired of seeing great 2s leave their posts to become ordinary 1s.
