IT Executive, Dan Schaeffer, is staggering under the weight of a project his command-and-control style cannot manage. His weight and high blood pressure put him at risk for a heart attack, and an enemy diligently works behind the scenes to get him fired. The VP of HR suggests that Dan get an executive coach. Skeptical, Dan chooses Michele Wu, whose business savvy and unorthodox, eastern methods guide him through realms he never imagined he would travel. As a result, he becomes a better leader, father and husband; and he deals with his enemy in a surprisingly effective way.
