Everybody was Kung Fu fighting...

Kung Fu Panda 3 is a work of art: both fine art and comedic art. It is a beautiful film to watch and a great film to enjoy. I did fear that the narrative energy would have run out for this third film. But no. This franchise is still on top of its game and delivers lots of delightful and very funny moments.

I love the way it has dumbed down Taoism but in a way that Taoism cannot be dumbed down... really. It is of course a ludicrous story but that is fine: it has no pretensions of being true to life. The voice over actors are delicious with some surprise castings: make sure you watch the closing credits. Go see!

When the Way is forgotten
Duty and justice appear;
Then knowledge and wisdom are born
Along with hypocrisy.

In my view, even with the best procedural manual in the world, you cannot really 'bottle' good customer service. An excellent leader is one who is able to create the environment in which great service is naturally and effortlessly offered to all clients and customers.

How much are you having to force good service into your organisation?
