I can actually tell you that I've worked at a place where the CEO and other C-level executives were considered (probably correctly) 10x more valuable to business operations than I was.
It's silly to pretend that isn't true almost everywhere.
At a restaurant, you've got a guy who can wash dishes. And a chef. Which one brings in business?
At a business, you've got a person who can answer phones and file. And an executive that oversees sales and operations. Which one keeps the business running?
It's more than silly, it's stupid, to pretend that one employee isn't easily replaceable while another leaving wouldn't crush short-term business until he/she was replaced.
