Have you ever worked with someone that no matter how hard you try, the two of you just don’t click? Sometimes it’s completely different work styles, a personality clash or they just don’t get your hilarious jokes. Relationships of all kinds can be tricky and hard to navigate, and the working relationship is no exception. When it clicks it’s amazing, but when it doesn’t it can be hell.
In a perfect world we would always work with people that completely ‘get’ us and make us happier and more productive people. But that ain’t really reality. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and get the job done.
