One of my fellow managers in my organization is becoming increasingly difficult for me to work with. Since I need to work with this person regularly on a number of initiatives, it is severely impacting the enjoyment I get out of my job. I am growing to really dislike working on any project with him, as his attitude and behavior grates on my nerves and I often leave meetings frustrated or angry when he is in them (examples are abundant, but I don't think they are necessary... ask if you think it matters).
I do not want to be a person that goes home and complains about their job to their spouse. Enjoying my work and being able to tolerate the people I work with is very important to me. Something is going to need to change in my interaction with the other manager soon, or I will start looking for another job just to get away from him.
So, I've thought about it and think that sitting him down and trying to work through it is something I am willing to do. Do I give him feedback following the feedback model, or do I just tell him "Look, I think you and I need to work through some issues in order for us to work better together" and jump right in? Have you ever worked with someone you didn't like that you hashed things out with? What works? What doesn't?
